Designed to connect students

Middle School and High School is a season of life filled with major milestones. This season of life is not easy. It is why we want to partner with you, and help you discover those milestones and God’s purpose for your life. We’ve designed the Student Ministry to be an engaging experience where students can openly learn about God, develop strong friendships, have fun, and grow into mature young adults!

Middle School

The Middle School years can be tough! You want to get it right and we can help. When you engage with our Student Ministry, your Middle School student is welcomed into a safe environment to learn and foster their faith journey for impact beyond our walls. We offer age appropriate teaching on topics that apply to their daily lives; aid in relevant conversation for relational and spiritual growth. We want your student to feel like they connect and have fun meeting new friends!

High School

Our vision is to see a generation of students who worship God, connect deeply in relationships, serve as empowered leaders and share life changing stories. These student leaders will have the opportunity to create, plan, shape, and develop Sunday worship experiences and events. Students are equipped with leadership development that applies in their everyday lives as well as the future as they apply for colleges, enter the workforce and beyond.

Student Ministers

We believe we have the best team of staff and volunteers around who help make our environments and relationships meaningful for our students and parents. Here is some of the team that you will meet when you visit one of our campuses. If you would like to join our team and help reach students, just click the link below and we’ll be in touch.
