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!
