Student Ministry

Our Vision

Forming Students who hear and do God's Word. (James 1:22)

This is a place where students and leaders gather together to dive into God’s Word together on a weekly basis, as we strive to be more like Christ and point others to Him. It is our desire to help middle and high school students become well equipped in being able to live a life worthy of the calling God has given each one of us. Our desire is to raise up the next generation of leaders that will advance God’s kingdom, no matter their career choice or platform!
