Introducing our New Middle School Minister

main image

In case you missed it this past Sunday, we as a church voted to call Nic Miner as our next middle school pastor in the student ministry! Nic grew up at Shandon, came through the children's ministry, the student ministry, and was even an intern in the student ministry for three years.  He is currently serving as a youth pastor associate in Rogers, Arkansas and has been there for four years.  He is married to his wife Katherine who is from that area and they have been married for six months.

Nic's first Sunday here at Shandon will be April 29th.  Please lift up Nic and Katherine as they make the transition from Arkansas and begin ministering to our middle school students.  We know God is going to use him in a great way!

Top 5 Reasons Your Student Needs To Be At Impact Weekend

The biggest event we do in the 803 Student Ministry is just right around the corner - March 2-4. If you haven't signed your student up yet, let me give you my top 5 reasons you should do so immediately...



#5 - The Early Bird Price Ends After February 18th


Right now the cost is $75 for the entire weekend.  After February 18th the price goes up to $100.



#4 - Friday and Saturday Night Events


On Friday night we will have human foosball and jousting as well as a live dance group...there will be breakdancing involved!  On Saturday night we have the entire Plex at Irmo to ourselves!  These two nights will be tons of fun.


#3 -  Great Food


We will be having Chick-fil-A and Moe's...always crowd favorites for our students. 


#2 - Host Home Small Groups


Staying in host homes for the weekend may be the single best way for your students to make long lasting relationship. If you've ever said, "my son/daughter is having a hard time connecting" there is no better time than Impact Weekend to solve that problem.


#1 - Atheism Debate


We've done debates in the past but this is sure to be our best one yet. We have good friend of Richard Dawkins, Herb Silverman, debating for atheism and Richard Howe debating for theism. We are expecting a record crowd for this one and Impact Weekend students will get preferred seating! This is one they do not want to miss.
