Impact Student Ministry is changing the lives of Middle and High School Students
by introducing them to a growing and active life with Christ.
 

The above statement isn’t just a catchy slogan, it’s what IMPACT is all about.  A life with Jesus Christ is exciting, challenging, and the most rewarding experience a person can have and we want to introduce and encourage middle school and high school students to begin and develop that kind of life.  You can download a detailed copy of our Philosophy of Ministry here.

By being a part of IMPACT, you’ll be a part of a group of your peers who are developing that same relationship with Christ.  You can expect to be a part of fun and meaningful youth worship events, deeper discussion in a smaller group of students your same age, and lots of other opportunities for special events like worship events, mission trips, retreats, and other monthly special activities.

D-Groups

D-Groups (or Discipleship Groups) are age and grade specific small groups meeting on a weekly basis to dive into God's word and apply it to the student's everyday lives!  The goal of D-Groups is for students to grow in their relationship with Christ, and to take ownership of their faith by starting to read their Bible and have a daily walk with Him. 

Converge

Converge is a corporate worship event specifically designed for Middle and High School students. Students are encouaged to invite their friends that may not normally go to church.  Each Service includes music, food, games, and a time of opening God's word.
