Student Ministry
Our student ministry strives to provide the resources needed to aid and enhance the spiritual growth of students and their families. Our goal is to challenge teenagers to become leaders for the Lord Jesus Christ. Our ministry begins with God and His Word. Accordingly, our programs are developed to reach the youth of our area with the gospel and to minister to them where they are, with God’s goals and standards causing them to mature as Christians. Our Pastor to Students, Skylar Hollis, along with adult volunteers work in this ministry.

Wednesday Schedule
 
S.A.L.T. – students in grades 7-12 meet every Wednesday night from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The focus is to equip, expose, and challenge students through Spreading Abundant Life to Teens. Throughout the year, students are part of summer mission trips, conferences, and Disciple Now with those goals in mind.
 
Small Groups – this is a time for the students to gather in their respective grade and gender groups, along with 1-2 adults to discuss the night’s message and respond to what they learned.
