Mission Students: Our goal is to challenge and impact a student’s faith in real and meaningful ways. We strive to give students practical and tangible ways to put their faith in action, as we believe that students aren’t the church of the future, they are the church today. We also aim to partner with parents; our small group leaders roll is to disciple students and support parents. Together we can impact students and bring them to a real faith in Christ.

Who We Are: The Student Ministry of Mission Church. We are open to 6th – 12th grade teenagers. We offer specific times for Middle School and High School Students to meet, as well as break down further into grade specific small groups. We have trips and events for both Middle School and High School, as well as for our Student Ministry as a whole. Our purpose in all our small groups, trips and events are to help students, grow closer in relationships with parents, develop stronger relationships with each other and their leaders and help put their faith into action, and grow deeper in their faith.


Do you ever felt like you’re putting on a show? Like the person people think you are doesn’t line up with who you really are? Or maybe you’ve been known to put on different personas for different situations—personasthat help you fit in with certain crowds, even if that persona doesn’t reflect who you really want to be. Soundfamiliar? Of course it does. We can all relate because, at times, we all struggle with the same big questions:“Who am I? Who loves me? Why am I here?” In this 4-week series on identity, we’ll help students find answersto those questions as they discover that, in Jesus, they are loved, they are forgiven, they have purpose,and they belong.

So you’re the parent of a teenager, huh? Congratulations! You have one of the most important (and sometimes the most difficult) jobs on the planet. 

We know your job isn’t always easy, but here’s what we want you to know: we’re here to help, in any way we can. Sure, we’re a “youth” ministry, but teenagers aren’t the only people we care about. We care about you too.

No matter how connected (or not connected) you are with our church, this Parent Handbook will show you some of the ways we’re trying to care for your kid and serve you at the same time.

Thanks for letting us be another voice in the life of your teenager. Your trust and partnership means a lot to us. 

Mission Students is an awesome group to be a part of! There are a lot of opportunities to get involved, make new friends, grow deeper in your faith, and learn more about being a Jesus follower. We go on a lot of trips, some fun, some to serve, we have Mission Trip opportunities, Summer Camp, as well as worship concerts! We have small groups specific to your grade, so that you have adults and peers you hang out with weekly to help travers some of life’s challenges and discover ways to grow deeper in your faith.
