Part of the Church Today :: Leading the Church Tomorrow

Youth Group: Wednesdays 7-9pm
Book Club: Sundays 12pm

Calvary’s Student Ministry exists to integrate students into the life of Calvary Baptist Church by mentoring them to be part of the church today and training them to lead the church tomorrow.

What is Student Ministry all about?

These are the goals of our student ministry, the first 3 are easily observable, tangible indicators of lifelong faith proven over years of research.
The second 3 are less observable, often below the surface but are characteristic of students who continue in faith. 

Worship with the Church

The top indicator that a student will continue in faith past their high school graduation is their regular attendance of a Sunday Morning Worship Service as part of the whole church.

Five Adults of Faith (and peers)

Students need FIVE adults of faith, people in their life who are invested in them who are directing them towards Christ, they also need a few peers of faith. 

Service

Students benefit greatly from finding a place within the church or community to serve on a regular basis. 

Able to Articulate Faith

Our students go through two 3-year cycles of teaching with series that hit every genre of scripture, core doctrine and apologetics--our top goal is for students to learn to express their faith themselves, to be able to say "this is what I believe and why."

Connect to the Story of Faith

Students are able to see their own place in the larger story of faith. This is God's story woven from the beginning of creation to Jesus and through the church. 

Mountain Top Experiences

3 times a year we have retreats or missions trips which are life changing experiences that our students often reflect back on as huge highlights in their walk with God and memories of their teen years.
Look out for our FALL RETREAT, 24 HOURS OF SERVICE in the winter and our MISSIONS trips in the summer.

Small Groups

Wednesday Nights 7-9pm

Our Small Groups are the heart of our ministry.  Their focus is to provide means to connect student with Adults of Faith and with fellow peers of faith. Our discussions focus around helping our students to own and articulate their faith. Middle School Small Groups focus on BELONGING to the church and to community, 9th-10th grade focuses on BELIEVING with the church, and 11-12th grade on BECOMING who God has called them to be.
