Ousness {awe-s-ness} - adjective
     1. Attaching to what is right

When we attach all aspects of our lives and actions to what is right we will experience right+ousness.

Our ministry focus is to relationally equip teens to grow into mature disciples of Christ Jesus.

This is possible by leading teens to:
Understand God’s Word and independently respond in a way that is transformative; 
which impacts their faith and life choices

Be active in His Kingdom and empowered to live out the Great Commission; 
making disciples in their D-groups, their community and the world

Develop a sense of belonging to Christ and His Church with an eagerness to seek
the Holy Spirit’s direction for their identity and purpose through study and prayer

Through fellowship, grounding their lives in being made into the image of Christ
  • Essentials Gatherings

    1st Sunday of the Month | 6:18pm | Student Center

    Learn about the essentials of the Christian faith. Each gathering we will have food and discussion around a key topic about Jesus.We encourage any high school youth to come and hangout. The food is always good and the evening is designed to allow you the space to share and process your thoughts.

  • D-group Gatherings

    2nd, 3rd, 4th Sundays of the Month | 6:18pm | Student Center

    D-groups is our core way of providing mentorship and small group experience with peers. Modeled after the 12 disciples, D-groups have students from each class (9th-12th), and the same gender. The groups are focused on loving each other in Christ, building a deep understanding of their faith, creating opportunity for disciple making, and preparing them to be mobile for Christ when they reach adulthood .

    Our hope is to see you extend beyond your comfort zone in ways that allow the Holy Spirit to grow your faith and ground you in His kingdom work. We believe that this missional experience is an opportunity for you to see how God calls us to live missionally. However, we have purposefully left out an important piece.... Where exactly this mission is taking place. We want you to explore a desire for missions without the location being a factor. During the discernment meeting we will share the location to help you finalize your decision. Please prayerfully consider your involvement in this mission trip. Include your parents in this process. Talk to them about missions and your interest in participating. If you feel called to serve, then fill out the High School Ministries Mission Trip Application (a separate document) and turn it in by its due date. 


    Mission Trip Dates: June 28th - July 5th 2019
