PCC Young Adults

A Community of Young Adults, ages 18-25.


Pathway’s young adult ministry is for 18 to 25 year-olds looking for a
place to connect and grow with others in their same stage of life.

Connect with PCC Young Adults


All 18-25 Year Olds are Welcome

This is the primary environment at Pathway where young adults can pursue full life in Jesus Christ, together. Through PCC Young Adults, you’ll have opportunity to connect with other Christ-followers who are in a similar stage of life. You’ll learn to grow in God’s Word, serve the church and the community, and go lead others into full life in Christ. Sound like a lot? It’s actually really simple and a lot of fun! Here are some of the ways this mission and these values play out in our community of young adults:

Life Groups

Life Groups are the core of PCC Young Adults. These groups are designed to provide a consistent, ongoing opportunity to experience deeper connections with God and with others. They meet in a variety of locations any time throughout the day, any day of the week.

Life Groups: Starting Point

Starting Point is a four-week study for young adults that takes place at Pathway, and subsequently launches into new Life Groups. There will be two Starting Point sessions per year: fall (September 10th) and winter (January TBD).

Service Projects

All Life Groups will be provided with an opportunity for one large service project per semester. These are awesome opportunities to serve the community and to share an experience with your Life Group!

Mission Trips

Every spring we will offer a short term missions trip. We are planning a trip to Puerto Rico in May of 2021.

Life Events

These are fun events meant to bring all the young adult Life Groups together for exciting community. We will have several of these per semester. They are also meant to provide opportunities for inviting new people to church. Examples of these types of events include: movie premiere nights, worship nights, Friendsgiving Feast, and open volleyball.

Late Night at PCC

Tune in Thursdays at 7PM for our young adult talk show, “Late Night at PCC.” Each week, the show focuses on helping young adults develop leadership skills within the community and beyond Fort Wayne. Each show features an interview with a seasoned leader, either in-person or virtually, as well as an interview with one of our young adults. You can catch the live stream on Facebook or YouTube.

Here's what's coming up for young adults at Pathway

Byron VonGunten

College & Young Adult Pastor

(260) 469-4444

Byron Von Gunten is the one-and-only College and Young Adult Pastor at PCC who is known worldwide for keeping African Cichlids. He also has the distinction of having attended every CDYC since 1989. CDYC is where he discovered his love of volleyball and ministry, which eventually led to his participation in two Athletes in Action volleyball tours. Now past his prime volleyball-playing-years, he enjoys cichlid conventions where he can sell and buy rare fish. But his real love is for his family. In whatever ministry he serves, his wife Renee serves right beside him—whether that ministry is college students at PCC or their son Maverick and the newest Von Gunten expected to arrive later this year.
