Our student ministry exists to reach non-believing students, to connect them with other Christians, to help them grow in their faith, and to challenge the growing to discover their ministry and honor God with their life. Our goal is to help every student understand that God has placed value on them and purpose in them. Come and check out how you can unlock the supernatural power of God in your life.


Every Wednesday night we try to shatter the stereotype that church has to be boring by creating a place that celebrates life in a way that ministers to believers and is non-threatening for people who don’t normally go to church. One of our goals is to worship God in a way that allows people to feel comfortable bringing their friends. Axis is a gathering of High School students every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. We meet in Hall 2 of the Student Building at Idlewild.
