Our goal is to reach the 803 area for Christ by helping students become true, lasting disciples that impact our community. Way too many students are exiting high school and leaving “their parent’s religion” behind. We want students to experience a faith and relationship of their own. Through a partnership with parents, we help our students develop their own personal relationships with God and give them opportunities to put it into action. Learn more about the 803 High School Ministry or the 803 Middle School Ministry.
Our desire in the Children's Ministry is for our kids to know God, love God, and follow Him. We want them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
