Student Ministries Environments

6.8 (Middle School)
9.12 (High School)

Student Service 
At Hope we recognize that our students are living and growing in an ever-changing and challenging world. Sunday nights are a time when students can come together to play games and activities, engage in worship, and hear a relevant teaching from Troy Easley- our Student Pastor.

Small Groups
We believe that small groups are important to help students build deeper relationships with God, their peers and adult leaders through small group discussions. The students are split into grade and gender specific groups for a time of deeper study, conversation and to build relationships with their peers and adult leaders.

Trips & Events
We offer various trips and events throughout the year for students. Trips and events are often divided between Middle School (6.8) and High School (9.12). Stay up to date on all our latest events by liking our student facebook page.

There will be music playing throughout the entire evening. There will be some pre-service jams while the students play games and there is a live student worship band that plays before service.

The sermons given each week will be to help the student learn more about Jesus and give an opportunity to start a relationship with Him.

VIP Room
Students are always encouraged to invite their friends to group. We offer a special VIP environment for students who bring friends for the first time. The student and friend get to go enjoy the perks of the VIP room at the start of service- where they will have awesome snacks and some adult leaders to hang out with and answer any questions they may have.



Want to get involved?

It is critically important for every student to be connected to adults who are willing to listen to them and love them. It is our philosophy that adults who follow Jesus can influence and produce Jesus-following students who become Jesus-following adults.
