Taking your faith in Christ to the next level.
When it comes down to it, student ministry is about ownership – it’s about taking that next step in one’s faith journey. As the primary faith influence, parents play a vital role in this process. Our job is to come alongside parents and partner with them in impacting a student’s life. We provide environments where students encounter Christ holistically in order to respond more clearly to His leading.
While our programs play an integral part, relationships are what matter most. Authentic faith occurs when every teenager has a place to belong and people who believe in what Christ can do in them. Hence, leading small becomes the foundation for leading big for the kingdom of God.
