groundZERO Youth is a ministry of Cavanaugh Free Will Baptist Church that reaches out to students from the 6th grade through 12th grade. Our goal is to present a relevant message in a teen-friendly environment that doesn’t compromise the Word of God.

groundZERO Youth is divided into two ministries, DECON (Declaring Eternal Christ Onto Nations) and Radiate (Reaching And Discipling In All The Earth)






The DECON middle school ministry is for students in the 6th - 8th grade. Our focus is to provide a Christ-centered environment with a biblical message, fun games, and exciting events. Our goal is to know God and make Him known. Our theme verse is Luke 10:27: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."





The RADIATE high school ministry is for students in the 9th - 12th grade. Our focus is to target the needs of high school teens and create an environment for them to connect with God and their peers in a safe Christ-centered atmosphere so that more students can be saved. Our theme verse is Matthew 28:17: "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit."




GroundZero-LogowithTitle-black-Transparent-300x95Our mission is Win, Train, Send.  We work diligently to make disciples of Christ by moving them through a process:

  • Win students to Christ through presenting the Gospel
  • Train them to grow in their relationship with Christ and fellow believers by getting involved in a small group Bible study on Sunday nights
  • Send them to serve in the church and our community
