Student Ministries

 Students will encounter and be introduced to many different lifestyles during the early teen years. To help them live the best life possible — the life God intended — we want to challenge them to connect through Christ-centered relationships, grow in the way of Christ, and give as Christ gave.

our desire is to see students

Connect

We believe that life change happens through the power of the gospel.  We also believe that relationships are an avenue for the gospel. It is our aim to connect students through Christ-centered relationships with other students and with caring adults who will motivate them in their relationship with Christ.

Grow

In all ways — intellectually, physically and spiritually — this can be an exciting season of growth for students. It is our hope to produce followers of Jesus by deepening their knowledge of God through Bible study, memorization and meditation.

Give

Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. Fighting the cultural obsession of personal entitlement and consumer consumption, we hope to raise up a generation of servants. Students more concerned with giving than getting and more focused on serving that being served.

The Role of Parents and Families

The Scriptures are clear that parents have the joy and responsibility of raising their children in the ways of Jesus. Parents are the primary voice and point of influence in their child’s life. As their children experience both joy and pain in life, parents are to help their kids see those experiences in light of the gospel.

[Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Psalm 78:1-7, Ephesians 6:4, Proverbs 22:6]

The Role of the Student Ministry

Our desire is to partner with parents as they take the lead in the spiritual development of their child. It is our hope and prayer to equip, encourage and minister to families by providing resources and opportunities that help them worship and learn together.
