About Student Ministry
Our vision is to see the next generation accept Christ, get connected, be empowered, and serve with humility.
The Bayou Students is a ministry dedicated to helping students (6th -12th grade) build a transforming relationship with God. Studies have shown that one of the primary things to influence the long-term faith of students is their integration with the larger life of the church during their teenage years. Our Student programming is designed to encourage participation of our students in the broader life of the church. We want them to attend the Sunday morning services and find a place to serve on Sunday mornings so they are no longer set apart like our preschoolers and kids.
Additionally, our commitment to age-specific ministry also compels us to have a separate Student Sunday Night program that includes worship, teaching, and small groups. By keeping all of those things together, we ensure 100% participation in student small groups, which are a key component to our strategy to forge life-long faith in each student.
