New Youth Society is the youth of Citipointe Church. In our high-schools, families and everywhere we go — our mission is to unmistakably influence our world for good and for God.

JOIN US! ALL HIGH SCHOOLERS WELCOME! New Youth Society is led by Pastors Chris & Shannon Hodgman, along with a great team who are passionate about investing in Brisbane’s teenagers. We gather weekly on Friday nights and Sunday mornings every week of the school term and in NYS Lifegroups.

Connect with us everyday on Facebook, Instagram @newyouthsociety and Youtube

New Youth Society Pastors

About Chris and Shannon Hodgman

Chris and Shannon are wildly passionate about the teenagers of Brisbane! They believe that Brisbane is the City of God and that a “New Youth Society” is rising and redefining the stereotypes and stigmas placed on the youth of today. New Youth Society will make a noise for Jesus in our city and our nation, when high-schoolers discover the call of God on their lives and influence their society with the truth and love of Christ.

While growing up in and serving the youth ministry of Citipointe Church since being high-schoolers themselves — Chris and Shannon have run leadership teams, lifegroups, programs, events, school outreach and more. In this time, Shannon studied a dual degree in Business Management / Psychology and has been working at Citipointe Church since 2011. Chris studied Social Science while working at IKEA; completed a management course there and since August 2015 has been employed at Citipointe Church.

Chris and Shannon have been married since 2015 and are honoured to both be employed at church overseeing the youth and video departments.

Weekly Programs at Brisbane



Every week of the school term on Friday nights on the church property in the Society House from 6:30-9pm, hundreds of high-schoolers from all over Brisbane, different schools and different backgrounds gather together at Citipointe Church. This is a great place to bring all your friends, those who may have never been to church and for those who come every week!


On Sundays during our 8:30am and 10:15am service, we run a youth program at Society House for high schoolers. While the adults are in church, we are having loads of fun together, playing games, hanging out, and equipping you to grow spiritually and to influence your world for good and for God.

NYS Groups


NYS Lifegroups run during the week in age and gender specific groups. This is a place where teenagers feel welcome, accepted, valued and heard. Lifegroups is a place to grow in all relationships – with God and others, a place to ask questions and be inspired by our amazing leadership team!
