Parent Connect

ABOUT STUDENT MINISTRY

We believe that the greatest impact can be made in the life of a student when two influences work together and say the same thing. This is why we partner with parents by discipling teenagers through small groups, music and worship, and teaching through weekly services and events to connect them closer to Christ.
