 We exist as a Student Ministry to not only reach the world for Jesus, but to equip our students to daily walk with Jesus, to serve with Jesus, and engage culture with Jesus. We will provide High School students with answers about their faith and provide them with affirmation that believing in Jesus Christ is trustworthy and accurate.

Furthermore, in Student Ministries we love to have FUN! Not only do we attend missions trips to places like Guatemala, England and Minneapolis, but we also take weekend long camping trips, go ice blocking, enjoy playing broomball at the Scheels IcePlex and attend “The Gathering” youth conference in California. However, the main goal in our student ministries is to grow in Christ. Therefore, our philosophy is to have a healthy balance between seriousness and fun.

Opportunities

Sunday School
We believe Sunday school to be a vital part of the programming in Student Ministries. We believe (and research supports) that students who are connected with the whole body of Christ are much more likely to stay connected to the church after graduation. On Sunday mornings, our high school students are encouraged to attend to the Adult Forums at 9:30am. While we do not have a specific “high school Sunday School”, our students partner with other adults in the church for an Intergenerational Forum. Our Intergenerational Sunday School (otherwise known as Adult Forums) is proven to be a very enriching time for our high school students as they are able to encounter Jesus in a real way and be poured into and valued from other adults in our church. Not only this, but because of our Intergenerational Sunday School,
students are better prepared to graduate from high school without graduating from faith and they more easily assimilate into larger congregational life.

 

Wednesday Night
Wednesday nights serve as our rally point every week. We have high school students in many different schools all over the city and Wednesday nights are our time to come together for snacks, fellowship, fun, worship & preaching. Arguably, the most valuable time during our Wednesday nights will take place when we split into different age and gender specific life groups led by adults who are a part of the Youth Staff Team. Life groups are the core of what we do on Wednesday night because they not only help individual students take steps toward Jesus, but they foster a healthy environment for students to deeply examine truth, discuss hard topics/issues and develop a community of same gender/age believers. Life groups also provide students with a role model(s) and soundboard to life as this time creates space for students to feel connected, be known and heard. High School meets from 8:08-9:20pm and we would love to see you there!
