We believe kids in grades 6-8 are ready to deeply engage their faith and beliefs. We use specifically designed programming, teaching, games, and mentorship to help direct middle schoolers' rapidly developing minds toward Jesus.
Our goal is for middle schoolers to have a transformational understanding of and belief in the gospel. We want to engage their hearts with the truth of Jesus, and proactively help them answer the "Why?" of their beliefs.
Why Middle School Ministry?
We believe the middle school age is one of the most important developmental times in a person's life. There's a growing body of research, studies, and evidence that supports this belief. We also know the middle school age is largely misunderstood and/or dismissed. If you want a quick crash-course on the importance of middle school ministry, read this article:
