Forge Student Ministries



The world is determined to disciple our children, and far be it from us that the world might work harder at discipling them than we do. We have a passion & a calling for this generation. We desire to see their lives supernaturally changed by the Kingdom of God, for the Kingdom of God. Our hearts are wired for life-on-life discipleship that looks like corporate worship, individual investment, and outreach events. We often have events that are focused on bringing in those far from God, as well as events designed to disciple those who want to grow closer. We want to help sow, water, and cultivate relationships with the Lord that are built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ and Him alone. We want to come alongside of parents in the discipleship process of their homes, and be an encouragement, resource, and avenue for consistent exposure to the Gospel, deep Godly community, and continued life transformation.
We don't want "Forge" to just be the name of our student ministry. We want to see students who are continually Forged into who God has called them to be. That, in a culture that focuses on looking inside one's self to find identity, meaning, and purpose, we choose to create a culture that looks up to the Lord, in to the Scriptures, around to the body of Christ, in order to pursue identity, meaning, and purpose that holds fast to the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. This is how we see that happening:

FORGE a Love for Jesus Christ


FORGE a Reverence of & Submission to the Father


FORGE a Sensitivity to the Holy Spirit


FORGE a Hunger for His Word


FORGE a Heart of Worship


FORGE a Desire for Holiness


FORGE a Community of Deepened Relationships

FORGE a Fervency for Others to Know Jesus


FORGE Disciples who make Disciples


FORGE the Development of your Calling


FORGE a Firm Foundation of Faith


Forge Student Ministries is for 6th-12th grade students & meets every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the church (656 Oxford Road).

(New 6th graders can begin attending at the beginning of each school year --- Graduates can attend through the summer after their senior year)

Each week, we have student-led worship, followed by a message in the Word.

We do monthly events, and quarterly "big" events to engage students, get them outside of their regular environment, and invite them to encounter the Lord in community with other teenagers hungry for the things of God.
