  11. Lead at least one ministry area outside of Student Ministries to expand reach and engagement within the congregation.

STUDENT MINISTRY VISION

We want to see students who don’t go to church come to church, students who are not Christians become Christians, and students who are Christians grow in Christ-likeness, knowledge of the Scriptures, involvement in the church, and outreach to their peers and families.
