We are serious about teaming up with families to produce young men and women who are 
passionate about being disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose

We acknowledge that we cannot produce the same effect in teenagers as their Christian 
parents. Therefore, we strive to equip and encourage parents to fulfill their God-given 
responsibility of training and teaching their children in the ways of the LORD at home 
(see Deut. 6:4-9). For detailed info and resources on parenting, see Stages in the Journey of Parenthood.

We also see the value of providing an atmosphere of Christian community among young people and their peers. Students need to have a place to grow in their relationship with Christ, especially those who don’t have Christian parents to look to for leadership. 

The Student Ministry is not a separate entity within the church, so we have the same mission and vision as the church. We accomplish these goals by taking teenagers to the truth of God’s Word to teach the centrality of Christ in all things and his commands for our lives.
