The Way Youth Center was started in 2019 and is located in the center of Utica, SC.

It was founded because we saw the need for a new hope and change in our neighborhood. Many of our teens come from broken homes and face many challenges as they navigate highschool and the real world outside of it.

We exist to provide our neighborhood with the hope of Jesus Christ. We do this by providing a safe space for our teens to be themselves and learn about the message of hope in the Gospel.

Our programs help give our teens the tools they need to redirect their lives and give them a brighter future.

What We Value


Jesus is Lord over all things
and His words are true.


The gospel is for all people.


No man is perfect but because of Jesus’s death and resurrection we can all be reborn and restored.


The Bible is from God and its words are true.

Our vision

Our vision is to be actively involved in the spreading of hope and restoration in Utica. We do this by introducing the Gospel and providing Christ-centered discipleship for our teens. We aim to let God move and work through us so that all may know Him.

Our Mission

Leading Youth to a Jesus-Centered life
