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.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever wanted to scream, “You’re not the boss of me!” (You can also raise your hand if you have, in fact, actually screamed it.) Especially when we’re teenagers, we tend to push back on the people, places, and things that control and hold authority over us. But here’s the catch: whether we admit it or not, we’ve all given someone (or something) control of our lives. In this 4-week series, we’ll challenge students to consider who, or what, they’ve allowed to be their boss. Because whether it’s the god of me, the god of stuff, the god of worry, or the god of obsession, we all know what it’s like to have an authority problem.
6:30pm – 8:00pm

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.
