Friday - 7:00 p.m.
Thank you for checking out our Student Ministry! We would love to help your Middle and High School students feel at home here. Our ministry is a part of our Family Ministries, which is aimed at leading the whole family in living gospel-centered lives UP towards God, IN towards the church, and OUT towards the world.
A “student target” is an extended family of 10-30 student disciples on mission to a specific group of students and/or network of relationship to multiply more student disciples of Jesus. We realize that there is not a one size fits all youth group or “target” that every student would want to be a part of, because every student is unique with different interests. So in order to make more disciples of students, this requires us to have multiple targets to reach unreached students. In other words, student targets are missional communities.
This is process we take with each student target:
- Contact: meet students where they are with their interests (sports, food, games, etc.)
- Community: help students belong to this community
- Christ: have organic and planned gospel conversations with students
- Live: help students disciples to live UP, IN and OUT
- Lead: empower student disciples to take more ownership and leadership of the target
- Multiply: equip student disciples to multiply into a new target to reach unreached students and the steps above.

Friday @ 7 p.m. Student Target Our current student target meets regularly on Friday nights either at the church basketball court or in someone’s home. At 7 p.m. we have “the hangout before the hangout” which is a time for students to eat together and have prayer and discussions about life and God. We then have our hangout/party at 7:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. for any student that wants to have fun, eat food, play volleyball, basketball, games, and hangout.
