Students

The Central Students Ministry serves students in 6th-12th grade. Our ministry is separated between middle school and high school with weekly programs for all grades and genders every Sunday and Wednesday.

Our philosophy of ministry is first, spiritual. We want everything we do to be based on students growing in their relationship with Jesus. We accomplish this through Biblical teaching, passionate worship, and personal discipleship. Secondly our ministry is relational. We desire for students to develop meaningful relationships with adults and other students that will serve as a source of strength and guidance in their walk with Christ. Finally, we desire for our ministry to be attractional. While we do not focus on the bigger and better mentality, we do want students to enjoy the programs and have fun while growing in Christ.
