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.


“Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” If you grew up going to church, it’s probably the firstsong about Jesus you can remember singing. “Jesus loves me” may seem like a pretty straightforward and foundational belief, but let’s be honest singing about Jesus’ love is a lot easier than actually imitating it. In this 4-week series, we’ll challenge students to observe, imitate, and be transformed by the radical love ofJesus for all people, but specifically His love for children, for the poor, for the stranger, and for the sinner.

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, our Students and Family Pastor and our leaders are here to care for your kid and you and serve your family any way we can!

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.
