Students crave to be loved by others, and we build authentic, vulnerable, and honest relationships over long periods of time with them to show them the love of Christ in and through us. We accomplish this primarily through small groups, which exists at the heart of everything we do.
As small group leaders seek to build authentic relationships, their role is to shepherd the students in their group in growing closer to Jesus. Our small group leaders understand and adapt to the needs of their group. We encourage all our leaders to shape a unique experience for their group throughout the school year.
Life moves quickly, and every week that passes is one less week we have left with our students. That is why we put intentional, creative effort into every week of our ministry. Big events can be catalytic, but improving the week to week is our biggest priority.
Just one encounter with God can alter someone’s life completely. We share the gospel consistently and boldly, offering students frequent chances to give their lives over to Christ. We also encourage our students to take the gospel wherever they go to be a light to those around them.
The research is clear. One of the distinctive characteristics of students who graduate from high school with a faith that lasts is service. We strive to provide opportunities for our students to use their gifts to serve others, both inside the church and out in our community.
God uses young people with willing hearts, and we don’t want to miss out on him transforming others through the lives of our students. We give students ownership of our ministries by equipping them to lead their peers at ministry events and throughout the week. We seek to unleash our students as the leaders not of tomorrow, but of today.
Our Student Ministry consists of JH (6th-8th Grade) and Summit (9th-12th grade). Both ministries exists to meet the specific needs of their age group, and we believe that students benefit from having their own distinctive group identities. However, while our leadership teams serve in specific functions within one of these ministries, every leader is part of the same Student Ministry team, striving for the best for all of our students across 6th-12th grade.
Instead of sharing prayer requests, each student prays for their own requests one by one, with each subsequent student also praying for the requests already prayed for again.
