Junior High

Welcome to our Jr. High Ministries page. Our desire is to see our Jr. High Students “walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” (Colossians 1:10) It is our prayer that our students are falling deeply in love with the Lord Jesus Christ and building a spiritual foundation for a lifetime.

First and foremost our greatest desire is that our students would pursue a vibrant love relationship with Jesus Christ. I think once a student is overwhelmed by love for their Savior so many things come into place. Holiness is not just the absence of sin but it involves living a spirit-filled life, following and becoming more like Jesus Christ.

Second, it is our desire to encourage each of our students to be personally involved in authentic Christian community. We want to deal with the real world. We are not developing a comfortable Christian climate, we are attempting to challenge them to authentic relationships and dealing head on with their struggles and pain. Each of our students are involved in small groups that we call core groups that are huge catalyst for this.

Third, it is our desire that our students have a passion for the lost. Our groups are heavily involved in evangelism and apologetics training, cold-turkey witnessing and various mission trips. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.” Even living in a postmodern world we take this statement very seriously.
