Our Purpose

WE EXIST TO GIVE STUDENTS THE TOOLS AND DESIRE TO BECOME MATURE CHRISTIAN ADULTS.

We picture student ministry as filling an empty backpack. Students enter our ministry with their backpack empty, so “What are we going to put in their backpack for them to take with them once they leave our ministry?” Below you will find the four essential items we seek to fill each student’s backpack with, equipping them and giving them the desire to become mature Christian adults, impacting this world for the glory of God for the rest of their lives.

STUDENTS SHOULD LEAVE THIS STUDENT MINISTRY WITH…

A DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIBLE
  • Knowing how to do a daily quiet time
  • Knowing the books of the Bible
  • Having read through the entire Bible at least once
  • Knowing how to personally study the Bible
  • Having memorized key verses
A DEEP APPRECIATION FOR THE CHURCH
  • Knowing the reason the church exists
  • Knowing the value of being actively involved in church
  • Understanding the importance of tithing
  • Having an appreciation for multiple generations
A DEEP LONGING FOR GOD’S MISSION TO BE FULFILLED
  • Having a heart for evangelism
  • Having a heart for the nations
  • Seeing all of life as their mission field
A DEEP DESIRE FOR GOD TO BE GLORIFIED
