Connecting Students to Jesus

In Student Ministry we seek to connect 6th - 12th grade students to the extraordinary life found in Jesus. Student Ministry at Faith offers: the Landing, Student Rooted Experience, First Communion Instruction, and student mission trips. All programs aim to show students what it means to be a disciple of Jesus who makes disciples wherever they live, work, and play.


Faith seeks to strengthen student's gospel-centered foundation through learning and studying the Word of God. We further hope to help students grow in a deeper relationship with each other, ministry leaders and volunteers, and God. Each student gathering slightly differs at each campus, but they all have the same mission. 

At Faith - Oakville 6th - 12th grade students can join the Landing every other Sunday evening. Middle schoolers from 4 - 6 p.m., & High Schoolers 6 - 8 p.m. in the Hangar. Students can come together to eat snacks, play games, hang out with friends, worship, and hear God's Word. There are also special events held throughout the year. Come check it out and bring a friend! Add meeting times and special events to your calendar!

Come check out Thrive, the new student ministry for 6th - 12th grade students at Faith-Columbia! Thrive gathers twice a month to play games, share snacks and conversation, learn about Jesus and to live life together. Invite your friends! Add meeting times and special events to your calendar!


Faith seeks to build and strengthen all student's Gospel knowledge and to help with their spiritual maturity. This includes preparing them to partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Class availability and schedule between campuses may vary.

The Rooted Experience: Student Edition is a step along the discipleship pathway that parallels the adult experience. In addition to three readings per week, students will have a weekly challenge, and a way to encourage conversations about faith at home.
