Student Ministries

Christ The Rock’s Student Ministries provide opportunities for students in middle and high school to learn about Jesus, build relationships with God and others, and develop into the man or woman God designed them to be, so that they can glorify God in all that they do. 

We build community with fun events like our annual fall Corn Maze field trip, Pizza Movie Nights, IceBlast retreat at Fort Wilderness, Senior Night each spring, and more.

Student Ministry students are also invited to develop a heart for serving others through service weekends at Silver Birch Ranch, working in impoverished neighborhoods with Jesus People USA in Chicago, volunteering at Lifest in July, serving at Christ The Rock’s free community Thanksgiving Meal and other opportunities.

Amped Middle School Youth Group (grades 6-8)

Wed. | 6:30-8:30 pm in The Loft

Our middle school students are learning to love God the way He loves us by discipleship through meaningful teaching, and relationship with small group leaders and each other – with lots of fun built in, such as Summer Blast Day Camp in July.


NarrowPath High School Youth Group (grades 9-12)

Wed. | 6:30-8:30 pm in The Loft

High school students grow in their understanding of who God is, what it means to follow Jesus, and “owning” their faith into adulthood. Teens experience worship, Bible teaching, connection in small groups, opportunities to serve and lead others, and fun with other high schoolers who want Christ at the center of their lives.
