Junior High

Our Junior High ministry primarily consists of Sunday morning Bible studies and our Wednesday night Crosstrainers which includes: game times, worship led by our student worship team, lesson times, and small group Bible studies. We also host an outreach event at least once a month, and a variety of special retreats, events, conferences, as well as an annual summer work camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Senior High

Our Senior High ministry is multi-faceted with students participating in a variety of ministries. The main programming elements include: Sunday morning Bible studies, “Senior High Sunday Nights” (these consist of a rotation of community nights, outreach activities, service projects, and worship & prayer), a student-led worship team, and a variety of small groups which meet in homes or at the church throughout the week.

Mission & Outreach

Our Senior High students also participate in various mission opportunities within the United States and throughout the world as a part of teams with other youth, adults, or individually.

We are actively involved with multiple para-church organizations within the public schools that minister to students, as well as the Youth Network of the Greater Peoria area.

Associate Pastor – Youth Ministries

“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?”

(Luke 9:23–25, ESV)
