What is Grove Students about?
We want to make disciples.
This is the mission of the church and so it is the main focus of our student ministry. Our goal with Grove Students is to make disciples of Jesus who are able to then make disciples also. Life is too short and Jesus is too important for this not to be the primary focus of Grove Students.
We want our students to own their faith.
Rather than students seeing The Grove as something their parents are doing, we want students to understand that this is their choice and The Grove is their church. Many of the conversations at Midweek are focused on students wrestling with issues of faith and worldview for themselves so that will be equipped and “ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks them for a reason for the hope that is in them.” 1 Peter 3:15
We want to find community.
God is not opposed to fun and neither are we. We love to see students form lifelong friendships and develop a community to help them as they work through middle and high school.
