Student ministry

Every event we host and every class we teach takes the help of volunteers.  Volunteers can choose to assist with small groups, lead small groups, just being there for students, help with Wednesday night transportation (YIA), or help with our administrative side of student ministry.  There are many places to get involved and serve in student ministry.
