Student Ministry

Youth Ministry Philosophy:
Equipping, Encouraging, and Empowering students in their faith development through worship, dialogue, service, and study.

To provide meaningful ways in which youth come to faith in Christ and deepen this life-defining relationship. The guiding conviction is that experiential learning – the hands on activities, questioning, and first-hand experiences – should be used in concert with learning the doctrine of Christian faith. In fact, Christ, the master teacher, many times answered questions with a question, encouraging seekers and disciples alike to discern the call of God for themselves.

The goal in this kind of approach is to empower youth to discover the meaning of the Christian faith. This is accomplished through corporate worship, dialogue, Bible study, service (missions), and Christian fellowship. The belief is this kind of approach will equip youth with the confidence and desire to follow God and foster life-long active church membership.
