Student Ministry

Students Ministry Pictures

We have a passion to students them become life-long followers of Jesus Christ. And for us that means we want to see every student worship, grow, and serve.

We've created both large group (Worship) and small group (Serve) experiences for all levels of our student ministry. In addition, we are challenging and provide opportunities for students to live out their Christian life by serving others in their local community and through various outreach events.

We hope to see you at one of the following times:

Straight X: Wednesday 6:00 – 7:45 p.m.
Life Groups: Sunday 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.

For more information on our Student ministry come and visit with us, or call Chris at 662-335-3294.


These services are designed specifically for students. It is fun, exciting, and creative! We want our students to bring their lost or unchurched friends so they can “taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8a) A typical night includes free food, group games, videos, praise and worship, and teaching.


Life Groups are designed for the student who wants to grow in their faith. Students are put in a small group based on age and gender. They are challenged to have a walk with Christ that is their own, to care and support each other, and to live out what is being taught each week. They serve together and have outing together regularly.


This ministry launches in September, 2011. It is a system that very easily gives our students many different opportunities to serve in our church. They can try them out for 1 month, and then either try something else, or commit for the rest of the semester.


We want to have events that are going to help our students build relationships, grow in their faith, and serve the world! Some of our yearly events are:

  • Life Group Lake Day: Coming Soon!
  • Life Group Retreat: October 15-16 at Lake Forest Ranch in Macon, MS
  • Disciple Now: January, 2012
  • Student Life Camp: June, 2012
  • Super Summer: July, 2012
