Students’ Ministries

Our student ministries are rooted in highly relational and deeply spiritual gatherings within an inclusive community. Every week we have a ton going on for middle and high school students—we love developing relationships with them, having fun, and teaching about the transforming power of Jesus Christ. We also host special events all throughout the year to give students opportunities to grow spiritually, practice their faith and truly find a place within our community.

Our mission is to glorify God by growing Christians and spreading the Gospel.
