Who We Are

COTH Young Adults is the Young Adult Ministry challenging and shaping this generation through community, scripture, worship, and prayer at small groups and a weekly gathering specifically designed for Young Adults. Headquartered just south of downtown Dallas in Cedar Hill, TX. We have a passion to see a generation change by making an impact in our city and transforming the way Young Adults do life. Although we are the Young Adult ministry of Church on the Hill, anyone from anywhere ages 18-30 are encouraged to come.

Our Pastor


COTH Young Adults is led by Pastor Shawn Bates from Cedar Hill, TX.  During his studies at Christ for the Nations in 2007, Shawn started serving at Church on the Hill in various ministry capacities and has participated in young adult ministry for over 10 years.  In January of 2016, Shawn accepted the roll as the leader over the Rally DFW, as Church on the Hill commissioned Pastors Ryan and Amanda Alldaffer to plant the Rally Church in Chattanooga Tennessee.  Shawn has a passion to see the equipping of young leaders and to stir up the flame of the Lord in a generation called to impact the world.

COTH Young Adults has completely changed my life. It has pushed me not only to grow in the knowledge of God and His Word but has also taught me the power of submission and the blessings and authority that come with walking IN the fullness of Christ.
