WELCOME TO ST. LUKE’S STUDENT MINISTRIES

For students in 6th-12th grade, our middle and high school ministries offer strategically focused Bible studies and events to meet students where they are and spur them on to know, love, and follow Jesus Christ. We are committed to loving and serving youth and their families as they navigate the teen years and explore their faith in Christ.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Welcome 6th-8th grade students! We know middle school is viewed by many as the awkward years, but God has more planned for you than a few years of awkwardness. Your openness for life and enthusiasm for learning are two of the things we appreciate most about this age group. Each week at St. Luke’s, you will have the opportunity to connect with your peers and learn more about a life-changing relationship with Jesus.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

The Servant Leadership Academy is a process of deeper discipleship and intentional training and leadership opportunities for students who want to learn how to put their faith into practice by serving inside and outside the church. Students will have the opportunity to join a study of leadership, Scripture, and spiritual formation, as well as unique leadership opportunities among the church and peers.  All students are invited to begin the application process by filling out the application here.  For more information contact Joseph Patty.

PARENTS & VOLUNTEERS

It is clear in scripture that the primary source of discipleship in a student’s life is the home. Our hope is to effectively partner with you and encourage you to be the parents God has called you to be. We have countless opportunities for people wanting to partner with Student Ministry at St. Luke’s As a volunteer, you could lead a weekly small group, travel with us to retreats and mission trips, share your gift of photography or anything in between. If you feel a calling to walk alongside our 6th-12th grade students in their journeys of faith, we invite you to sit down with one of our staff members to learn more about all the ways to get involved.
