We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting your day by digging into God's word is just as important! Come and hang out with Dave MaGee, Director of Student Ministries, and Sam Johnson, High School Minister, bright and early on Thursdays, during the school year, for Breakfast & Bible Study. Bring your Bible and your friends!
The Vision: To mobilize students for the renewal of the Church.
Discover your passion. Discover your impact.
Leader Collective is for confirmed students in grades 8-12, who identify themselves as leaders. Whether their path lies in ministry as a career, social work, counseling, law, healthcare or lay leaders in the church, Leader Collective will place each student on an individual path to explore their leader potential. Mentors will provide support, encouragement, resources and options for these students.
We are committed to developing leadership through experiential learning and creating an authentic Christian community where students seek to discern and discover God's direction for their lives.

In Confirmation, a group of students join together to explore who Christ is, what it means to know Jesus through a life-long relationship and how we can follow Jesus as United Methodists. Confirmation is not simply a “rite of passage” or just a class to complete. It is a step in a life-long journey of pursuing the height, depth and width of God’s love and making a vow to live in relationship with Jesus for the rest of our lives!

Mentors and junior mentors (highs school students) are needed to journey alongside the Confirmands. Confirmation is truly a life changing experience for these students, and their mentor is their guide, encourager, cheerleader, and coach along the way.
You and your co-mentors will lead a small group of students through the provided curriculum. Training and all supplies provided. We are not looking for people with all the answers but someone who will help these young people find their own. Kids can never have to many caring adults in their life.
If you have a student in confirmation you can choose whether you'd like to mentor them.
We offer one session of Confirmation for the 2017-18 School year: Sundays from 10:40 am - 12:15 pm in Student Center Building C.
