We are a ministry designed to challenge middle school & high school students to trust Jesus Christ and to follow Him. Discipleship is the heartbeat of our student ministry. Our goal is to develop students of God’s Word who are equipped to impact a culture that is progressively becoming ‘Post-Christian’.
On Sunday mornings our Students are learning how to study the Scriptures for themselves so that they can lead others to study the Scriptures through one on one processes of discipleship. It's a really exciting time for our students and our church at large.
We are currently going through the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah
Our Wednesday evening worship times are designed to give students the opportunity to gather with their peers in an environment that encourages fellowship, worship through song and study of the Word. Currently, we are studying through the book of Acts.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is welcome to attend?
Our student ministry is available to all students between 7th -12th grade.
Can I join my child?
We will never refuse parents access to this student ministry. However, we have a structure for leadership in place to best meet the needs of our students as well as provide a safe welcoming atmosphere. If you want to be more involved then we ask that you speak with leadership first.
What can my child expect?
We believe in sharing life together. When your child comes to student ministry they can expect fellowship, worship and the teaching of God's Word. Although we don't place a major emphasis on games and activities, we do know how to have fun as believers. We aren't your typical youth group. We want your child to grow in their faith and be able to lead others to faith as well.
Do I have to be a Christian?
Not at all. We desire for this ministry to be student led. Our hope is that those in the ministry will share Jesus with non believers in hopes of them surrendering their life to Jesus. It's a ministry, so that's what we do!
What are your service times?
We meet every Wednesday night in the Pavilion from 6:15pm-7:30pm for student worship. We have three small group hours that are offered on Sunday mornings: 8, 9:30 & 11am.
What is a mentor?
Our mentors are fantastic. They have a gift and a calling for middle school and high school students. They are intentional to invest one on one in the lives of students as well as guide and instruct our student leaders.
What is a student leader?
A student leader is a 10th - 12th grade student that wants to invest deeper into the ministry. They are partnered with a mentor and challenged to weekly, monthly and yearly assignments. Our hope is that when they graduate high school ministry is second nature to them and they then take it into other areas of life.
Do you believe in missions?
Oh yes! Our Savior was a missionary savior. As a result, so are we. We encourage and provide opportunities at home and abroad for students to be apart of the Great Commission around the world.
