Our Student Ministry gathers students from middle school through high school and encourages them to grow in their understanding of who God is, develop a personal relationship with Him, and equip them to serve and be sent to the community around them.
This age can be such a time of change for both students and their families. At this stage of life, students begin to become more independent and explore who they will be. We want to come alongside students and families during this time and point them to Jesus.
In our Student Ministry, we want to help your student truly understand the Gospel, pursue an authentic relationship with Jesus, and guide them in allowing that relationship to define who they are. As they learn to define themselves by who Christ says they are, we want them to be sent out to share the hope they have with their friends and family.
What is looks like
On Sunday nights, students meet together in small groups at a central home in the Triangle area. We dig into God’s word together, have a ridiculous amount of fun, and share life with each other and with our student ministry leaders. Relationships with adults and other students who are ready and willing to speak the gospel into the life of your student are so important.
Outside of our weekly meetings, we serve monthly in our community, go on retreats and day trips, and have lots of fun, informal events. Our leaders try to attend the students’ sports and school events to connect with them in their own space.
Speaking of leaders–our student ministry leaders are committed to walking alongside your student and family to help your family become a family of learners, lovers, and givers sent on mission to make more disciples.
Raleigh Dream Center
We serve monthly with the Raleigh Dream Center’s Adopt-a-Block ministry, specifically at the Raleigh Millbank Apartments off of Raleigh Blvd. The Adopt-a-Block program provides over 4,500 pounds of groceries each month at no cost to under-resourced communities.
For two hours each month, we knock on doors, hand out groceries, pick up trash, play with kids, and have intentional Gospel conversations. It’s an opportunity for our students and leaders to be present in our local community, building relationships that will allow them to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Want to join us? We’d love to have students and their friends join us. Contact Jared and Mel Ritter (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get info about when we meet, where, and how you can get involved.
