A Ministry of Our Youth, Not Just to Our Youth
New Life Student Ministries are ministries of our youth. We seek to equip our students for ministry and to encourage them to find the particular ministries to which God is calling them. We are not working to give our students a safe place to hang out. This ministry is about encouraging our youth to take risks and rely heavily on Jesus as we study His Word, learn about prayer, live in community together, and serve the people around us. There is no such thing as safe Christian community because we do not serve a safe God. Our students will learn and grow in their relationship with Jesus as they are encouraged to live in unity with Him and each other.
