Welcome to Endeavor, the High School Ministry of First Evangelical Church.   



  • Sunday Morning Discipleship: 
              Meets from 10am - 10:55am in the youth portable (located in the
              Southwest corner of our property).
  • Wednesday Night Youth Group: 

              Meets from 7pm - 9pm in the youth portable.  

  • On occasion the times of youth group will be changed.  This could be due to a special event or because of a youth retreat or camp, etc.  When this is the case, it will always be noted on the Endeavor calendar.  



  • In addition to meeting weekly, we have all sorts of events each month designed to help students grow in their faith, to have fun, and to grow more deeply in their relationships with their family, their friends, & with God. To find out more, download our monthly calendar:


  • You can also learn about upcoming events by checking Endeavor's Facebook page.  It's a closed group for safety reasons, but if you're a student or a parent of a student and would like to join... call (360-694-2525 Ext. 126) or e-mail me (Pastor Matt Perez, at Matt@firste.org) and I'll set you up!  




In addition to our weekly meetings and monthly events, we also have  2  amazing camps throughout the year.  

The cost for each includes meals, transportation, & lodging.

Please make any checks out to "FEC."  

1.  SKI CAMP   

Our largest event of the year is our High School Summer camp.  Join us as we travel to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds (430 SW Fairgrounds Rd. Madras, OR 97741) for a week of God, friends, sun, and fun!  See God work in powerful ways as we enjoy Him, each other, and His beautiful creation.  Go water skiing, tubing, wake boarding, knee boarding, or just a ride on the lake.  Jump of the dock, go swimming, play volleyball, ride horses, go paintballing, participate in a themed camp wide competition, be blessed by an amazing volunteer camp staff, make new friends and become even closer to old ones, hear from an incredibly gifted camp speaker, participate in passionate worship, and so much more!

* Specific borchure's and forms will be UPDATED as we get closer to Summer *


Make sure to print up our 2017 Ski Camp Brochure including departure and return times, a packing list, and key contact information.  I've left last year's brochure up so you can see what it looks like/what camp is all about.  As we approach next year's camp, I will update this with 2018's brochure.

You'll also need to print up, fill out, and have your parents or legal guardian sign a Waiver & Medical Release Form.  Once completed, you can give it to Pastor Matt, or bring it with you to registration at 9:00 AM on Monday July 9th.  I've left last year's Waiver & Medical Release Form so you can see what it looks like.  As we approach next year's camp, I will update this with 2018's form.

If finances are an issue, please fill out a Scholarship Application and turn it into Pastor Matt by Sunday June 24th.  Don't let money stop you from going to camp!  Sometimes we all need a little help.
