Our purpose is to shepherd, teach, pursue, love and disciple the next generation in our communities for the Glory of God. We believe students are capable of leadership and that adults have incredible value in the lives of students.
STUDENTS ARE VALUED AND VALUABLE We want students to feel both loved and welcomed. When any student walks through our doors, we make it a point to try our best to show them their innate value in Jesus Christ.
DISCIPLESHIP IS OUR MODEL The center of student ministries is based around discipleship. We believe this is the model of ministry that Jesus gave to us and that this provides the best environment for students to grow in their understanding and following of God. We accomplish this through meeting students in their daily lives, hosting small groups, and modeling a life that eflects Jesus well.
ADULTS ARE KEY It is our belief that the primary disciple makers in the lives of students are their parents/ guardians. Because of this, we value partnering with parents and setting them up for success. We also believe other adults offer innate value to students so we invite and encourage adults to work and volunteer with the students.
WE STRIVE TO KNOW GOD & LIVE IN THE WORLD The Bible is our sole rule for conduct and understanding of the nature of God. Because of this, we make it a point to teach from the Bible. We believe that the Bible is not only exciting, but it is also very relevant to the lives of our students. Because we know God has called us to live in a broken world, our goal is to teach students the power and truth in Scriptures so that they may see just how important it is in their day to day lives.
STUDENTS ARE CAPABLE OF LEADERSHIP We firmly believe that students are the church of today, not tomorrow. Students are leaders in their day to day lives in their friend groups, school, and at church. We will strive to empower them to this end by providing them with opportunities to serve within and outside of the church building.
