VISION
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.

MISSION
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 .
