We want to help students discover the beauty of their own stories and connect to the great story that God has been writing through all of history.
Sundays in the Student Center / 6–8 PM
Gather Sunday evenings for music, teaching, games, discussions, friendship, and good food in the cafe.
Journey Groups / Late August–April
Ask honest questions, study Scripture, be invested in by a Christ-following adult, and share life with a small group of peers as you develop deep and lasting friendships. Groups meet Sunday nights at the Student Center. To register or get more information, contact Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connecting to the Church
We want to help students develop a lasting faith. We intentionally have Sunday mornings open so they can attend a service and serve. As they do this, they interact with people ahead of them and behind them in faith, which results in a faith that grows. See current serving opportunities.

Best vacation ever: South Carolina with my family
Little-known facts: I love missions, traveling, exercising, and laughing. I love to create and recreate through photography and home projects with my husband.
Why student ministry? Because students are amazing, they love well, laugh hard, play hard, and are looking for what is true and real. Students are passionate about what they love and are trying to figure out what that is and how to live it out. I love to create spaces for them to figure out these life questions and I love being a part of their journey.
