Student / Youth Ministry
In both our high school and middle school gatherings we take the Up, In, and Out approach.
We want to focus on knowing the Father through the Holy Spirit by way of the scripture - teaching students practical ways to engage with God. Out of a place of knowing God and His love for us, we are able to step deeper into our giftings with His power.
We believe it is important to call out the good things in each other, to equip students in their desires and gifts, and to create space for them to practice and step into their gifts on a Sunday (high school) and Wednesday (middle school) night. Once a month, we will have a full student led night where the students are leading worship, teaching, doing ministry activities, leading prayer, etc.
Our nights consist of snacks and games, worship, teaching, and small groups. So come and join us for the exciting and fun adventure God has planned for us!
Of all the youth events we do in the year, this one is the wildcard. You don't know what you're getting into until the week of! In the past we've done massive Capture the Flag, post-midnight IHOP trips, Broom-ball on Ice, and more. Come and see what we're up to this year. We'll bring the first aid kit.

For the past few years, we have traveled to Waco, TX for the World Mandate Conference hosted by the Antioch Church. This two-day conference features four main sessions where students will experience dynamic worship, compelling teaching and powerful encounters with God that will inspire and equip students to be part of what God is doing around the world. We are typically able to take the first 15 high school students who sign up to World Mandate.
