245 student ministry

For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord,
and ourselves as "your servants" for Jesus' sake.
- 2 Cor. 4:5

We want to see students equipped to live a life of true
discipleship, as deeply devoted followers of Jesus Christ,
and to live, in all things, for "His Glory"!

We help students realize, the only life worth
living is the one you give away.

  • Pursue - SUNDAY NIGHTS

    Begins again on  August 27th. 2017

    All students 6th-12th grade are invited to join us on Sunday nights from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Youth Worship Center. We will begin with dinner from 5:00-5:30, and then students will be separated into their small groups organized by grade and gender from 5:30-7:00. This time is spent "pursuing" the Lord and learning how to model their lives like Christ. We do scripture memory; have weekly reading material for the students, prayer time, accountability, and the students are able to bond with their small groups. During this program the students will learn to pursue God in a new way!


    This is a Fall semester long study for students who want to dive deeper in their faith. This program is for the student who no longer wants to just learn about the Bible or just seek the hands and feet of Jesus. This program is for the student who truly wants to seek the Face of the Lord. It is for the student who wants to learn how to walk side by side with Jesus through prayer, meditation, scripture memory, study and discussion. This program will run every Sunday afternoon through the Fall Semester beginning at 4:00p.m. in the Youth Worship Center . Students must have their parent’s permission that they are ready for such an in-depth walk with the Lord. Please consider all that is required before allowing your student to participate. Registration and a fee is required. 'Many aspire, few attain.'

  • Impact

    Deep Impact is a spring term, hands-on spiritual experience where you put into practice what you believe! We learn and test our spiritual gifts, prayer, service, and evangelism through this awesome journey. This will run through the spring semester and requires parent consent form. Please consider all that is required before allowing your student to participate in this in-depth walk with the Lord! There will be a "Mystery Trip" for participants upon completion of this course.
