Students

We view ministry to students as a partnership with families. Together we seek to help students understand who Jesus Christ is: how he lived, what he taught, and how his death and resurrection changes everything. In light of who Jesus is, we help students answer the question, “Who are you?” We believe the best place to do this is within a community of believers who truly love God and each other.
