Student Ministry

We exist to engage the whole person with the whole Gospel: Anywhere, Anytime, with Anybody.

For Student Ministry, this means prayerfully pointing students toward Jesus so that lives are changed and eternities saved.  A changed life in a student essentially involves three compulsions.

To Believe:

.. that the Bible is our source for knowledge and therefore reveals the true story of God and humanity. Subsequently, who Jesus is and why we are naturally lost, but through the death and resurrection of Jesus, made God’s children and restored from pain to purpose.

To Belong: a community who consistently and lovingly point one another toward alignment with what we believe.  This looks like encouragement, accountability, honesty, and enjoyment.

To Be On Mission:

.. with Jesus in His plan to carry out the redemption and restoration of all creation.  This means taking the Gospel to the lost and searching, as well as acting as agents of redemption in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, teams, and clubs; through love, sacrifice, prayer, and proclamation of the Gospel message.

The Bible Reading Plan

We believe nothing on earth heals, shapes, and empowers us like The Bible.  We believe this requires consistent consuming of God’s Word; interacting with, memorizing, and teaching It as a way of life.  Therefore, all life groups will be following the same Bible Reading Plan.  We encourage all students to join us on a 3-year journey through the Bible.  Find the week and jump in!:
