Our Mission

MTZN Youth exists to help students in the Lake Geneva area to passionately love God, each other, and their world.
We will accomplish our MISSION by continuing in the VISION that God has given our church which is to Gather together, Grow (our relationship with Christ and each other), and to Go into our world to reach the lost.

About MTZN Youth

Riley & Casey Sampson

Riley and Casey have been in youth ministry together since 2009. They both graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis where Riley got his bachelor’s degree in youth ministry.  They have been the youth pastors here at Mt. Zion since August of 2016. Riley and Casey have a heart to see students passionately love God, passionately love each other, and passionately love their world. You will often see them with their two girls, Selah and Shiloh.

7th-12th Grade Youth Service


We have a 7-12 grade service that meets Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:15. Pre-service prayer starts at 6, our gym is open from 6-6:45, and we start our service at 6:50. Services are usually done at 8, but students are welcome to stay and hang out afterwards.

If you are a parent or guardian and want weekly updates regarding this service and other events please text “@mtzny” to the number 81010.

5th-8th Grade Sunday School Class


We also have a 5-8th grade Sunday School Class that meets on Sundays during our 10:30 service. Students join the adults in the sanctuary for the first few songs of worship and then are dismissed to class.

If you are a parent or guardian and want weekly updates on this service and other events please text “@jhsunday” to the number 81010
