Helping students glorify God.

Refuge Student Ministry exists to reach students and to develop them into fully grown followers of Jesus Christ. We desire to do this by teaching our students to: KNOW HIM DEEPLY, LOVE HIM PASSIONATELY, AND SHARE HIM BOLDLY.


Life groups are the backbone of our Student Ministry. For all 7TH -12TH grade students life groups meet at 9:30am on Sunday mornings. This is a great place to grow in your knowledge of God’s Word and to learn how to apply it to your life.

On Sunday nights from 5:00-5:45pm we have large group Bible study. We also offer a student mentoring program where students meet one-on-one with a college student and dig into the Word and are able to talk about different topics that they might be struggling with on a weekly basis.


Each week 7TH -12TH grade students will come together for an incredible time of games, worship, and relevant teaching in small groups. We meet in the youth room on the second floor from 5:00-7:30pm What a great opportunity to bring your friends and come hang out!

Each quarter on Wednesday nights we also have Student Leadership classes that take place. This is where we develop and train student leaders to lead out and take ownership in our student ministry and they have an opportunity to serve in many different areas.
