Catalyst Student Ministry exists to facilitate personal transformation in every participant’s life. We believe the best way for our 6 – 12th grade students to be transformed in their faith is through understanding and applying the Bible together as a community. We structure our meetings and events so that our ministry would be a catalyst for our students’ growth and transformation into followers of Jesus. Our vision is that students would Know the Gospel, Love Jesus, and Live for Jesus.
As we read the Scriptures together and seek to grow in our faith, we challenge students to do three things:
Connect to God by learning about the gospel, and to each other through fun and friendship.
Go deep in their faith by believing and trusting in Jesus Christ, and in their relationships with each other through love and accountability.
Live out their faith in God by living lives characterized by holiness and godly worship, which is in turn evident as they love each other and tell others about Jesus Christ.
Students and leaders connect with one another through weekly gatherings and various on- and off-campus events.  In addition, our students are encouraged to become involved with our church family through Sunday worship and service in various ministries of the church.

Sunday Mornings:

9:45 a.m.  Connect: Our focus in this meeting is that students would connect with each other through games and hanging out, and with God through a clear, interesting lesson focused on the gospel. Our current curriculum for both middle and high school classes is the Elements and Jesus Studies curriculum through Youth Ministry 360. The Elements curriculum takes students through important Christian theology, such as grace and discipleship. The Jesus Studies help teens see what Jesus says about the pressing, day-to-day issues they face.

11:00 a.m.  The majority of students attend the Contemporary Worship Service.

Wednesday Nights (September – May):

6:00 – 7:45 p.m. Dive: Our Wednesday night meeting is designed to draw students deeper into relationship with God and each other. Students have fun together in the Student Center before separating into small groups to connect with one another, apply the Bible to their lives, and pray for one another. Our current curriculum at Dive is Awana’s Trek curriculum, which answers three important questions: Who am I? Why am I here? and Who’s with me? Both middle school and high school students will be going through the Trek curriculum.

Monthly Events:

We have at least one event every month, including: M-Fuge, Disciple Now, Winterjam, Bowling, Lock-Ins, Pool Parties, Fundraising events, and Mission Projects.

We take the safety and well-being of our students very seriously.  Every adult serving with our student ministry has been screened carefully with the appropriate background checks.
