Students

(6th – 12th Grade)

Impacting the Next Generation

Middle and High School students are curious about faith and eager to discover how a relationship with Jesus could change their lives, their schools, and our city. Our time together includes a live band, practical teaching and a time of guided group discussion.

Stay Connected

Journey Student Ministries (JSM) will meet online until further notice.

JOIN A GROUP

We believe the best way for students to feel connected and find a place to belong is by joining a life group of students of the same grade and gender which meet on a weekly basis. Once you sign up, you will be contacted by a life group leader for more information.

All volunteers must have an approved background check before serving in student ministries.

Doors open 30 minutes before the service starts. This gives students an opportunity to connect with friends and leaders, usually over a snack or a game, then the program begins. Every gathering typically includes singing and a message — think Sunday but louder and with more energy.

No, every student is welcome at Journey of Faith, so come as you are. We want to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable to belong.

Each student service gathering is lead by team of skilled communicators.  Each week your student will clearly hear what it means to integrate faith into their life.  Nick Williamson and Ashley Diehl typically prepare middle school and high school ministry messages.

The only adults allowed to attend student gatherings are volunteers who have completed an approved background check on file with Journey of Faith. We welcome parents to serve as volunteers if you are interested in sharing the experience with your student. As safety is our priority, let us know you want to serve, simply fill out this form to get started.
