A place where students grow in faith and community.

Our St. Louis-based youth ministry provides a place where middle and high school students can grow into a healthy relationship with God. Each time our Student Ministry meets, students experience a unique service designed just for them, with engaging worship, relevant teaching and impactful discussion. Growing up can be tough, but we are passionate about connecting our students with mentors who will walk with them through their life journey.
