BridgeStudents exist to help your student Know God by studying the Word; Find Freedom in life by teaching them to rely on God everyday no matter what comes their way; to Discover Purpose by understanding why they were created and the gifts God has given them and to Make a Difference by serving the church and community.


This Summer is going to be one to remember for our Bridge Students. See our Summer Schedule below for the 2024 BridgeStudents Summer Olympic Games. Each week your student will join their team for challenges and games that will last all summer long. We will even have surprise mid-week challenges during the summer for the teams to complete. Our goal is to keep your student active all summer.

Becoming a Leader

We want every person that has a heart to serve the church to have a place to serve. With that being said, there is a process to becoming a leader in our ministry.

Being a leader carries weight. Without going through the proper channels, some people may not be able to handle that.

Here are the steps that all volunteers must go through before they begin serving in our ministry:

• Complete the Growth Track.

• Have a Next Steps Conversation.

• Complete the background check process.

• Volunteers will be contacted via phone or email about the various areas to serve.

• Shadow Student Night, observe a student group, or serve in the lobby on Sundays.

• After shadowing, the volunteer will have a more in-depth onboarding process they choose to serve on the student team.

• Add them to Planning Center.



When students come, they should feel welcome. Family and community are at the core of our church and our student ministry. We do our best to create a safe and inviting place for all students. A place where students can be heard and feel
connected to others.


When you think of discipleship, always go back to the phrase “give a man a fish and he will eat for a day but teach a man how to fish and he will eat forever.” BridgeStudents is not just about giving the students answers. It is about teaching them how to find the answers for themselves. That is why discipleship is key. Getting students connected with leaders is of the utmost importance.


We want BridgeStudents to be a place where students have fun. Something that students look forward to every month. No one wants to come back to a place where they were bored, so we will ensure that we are keeping the students’ attention and leaving them wanting more.


We understand that the world is different for young people now. There are a lot of different things trying to gain their attention. To connect to students, we must be creative. We must be risk-takers and we are willing to try anything short of sin to connect them to Jesus.


We are called to be servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, so we must serve. Not only our community, but our church. BridgeStudents should look for ways to serve the people of our church. Whether that’s mowing someone’s lawn or helping them move. Servanthood is a quality we will emphasize.


We want to help facilitate growth both spiritually and mentally. The church is called to walk alongside people just as Christ did, to help cultivate growth. That means when we see specific gifts and abilities in students, we will call them out and help them grow those gifts. We want to partner with students to be all that they are called to be.

Partner With Parents

Leaders and Pastors spend limited time with students. It is important to partner with parents, honoring their decisions and ensuring the best for the students. We must be able to give parents a clear explanation of our events so we can win them. When we win the parents, we win the students.

Allow the Holy Spirit to Move

We can plan as much as we want, when the Holy Spirit moves, we will surrender our ideas and plans and let Him take control. This may not happen at every service, but we will not interfere with what God wants to do when it does.

Based in Truth

Every message will have a purpose. Some topics may be tough for students to handle or understand because of personal beliefs, but we will not let feelings and worldly culture dictate truth. We will explain Biblical truths with love and grace,
but they will never fall subject to culture.
