Leading students to trust and follow Christ by equipping them to live a life of worship, life in community and life on mission.
We believe that discipleship is primarily the responsibility of parents. We want to partner with parents to encourage, support, and equip them to fulfill this assignment.
We hold to a missional model of student ministry, believing that students should be trained to do the “work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:12). As students progress, we will teach Christian doctrine and how it applies to a Christian’s lifestyle and worldview. We will lead them to develop meaningful Christian relationships and provide opportunities for students to practice missional engagement.
A Life Of Worship
The students at MacArthur Blvd worship with their families on Sunday mornings in the 11:00 a.m. Worship Gathering. We value teenagers worshiping with their families since parents are called to be the primary faith influencers in the lives of their children. Within the Worship Gathering, our church family hears the word of God through singing and preaching. It is here that students are exhorted to respond to the revelation of God with all they are—mind, emotion, and will—launching them into a life of worship throughout the week.
The River Service. Teenagers are not the church of tomorrow; they are the church of today, and so it is a privilege as well as a responsibility for them to be praying corporately with the people of God for the people of God. The River Service is our weekly prayer meeting that is open to all generations. Come dip your feet in the river of God’s goodness!
A Life In Community
Community Groups for students are a gender and grade based ministry where students develop Christian relationships through word-based fellowship and prayer. The goal is to equip our students to live their lives in the context of Christian community. Community Groups are led by godly men and women who facilitate the sermon-based curriculum on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
We always welcome visitors to student Community Groups! Just make your way to the Student Assembly room. Students may prefer to park near the bridge entrance on the back side of the parking lot. If you would like additional information about Community Groups, please contact Enoch Chan directly at email@example.com.
A Life On Mission
Overflow is a venue for students on Sunday nights at 6:00 p.m. where we gather to sing, fellowship, have fun, and learn. Overflow exists to equip our students to live out the Word of God in their cultural context. Students in Overflow will have opportunities to engage the community with the gospel through outreach opportunities. Visitors are always welcome, just come on up to the Student Assembly on Sundays at 6:00 p.m.
Since we believe in intergenerational worship with the rest of the church family, this is not a separate student service. The structure is therefore more relaxed, and students often find it easier to connect with people here. The aim of Overflow is to equip students with the tools to know how to declare and demonstrate the gospel of Jesus Christ in their context. Come! We look forward to seeing you!
Disciple 6 is a focused approach to the three primary steps within the Discipleship Pathway. It is a comprehensive, six-year curriculum (renewed every year) to be used with those specific teenagers who want to be disciples of Jesus.
The studies are grounded in Scripture and include the content areas of:
Apologetics Core Doctrines Servant Leadership
Biblical Interpretation Ethics Spiritual Disciplines
Biblical Relationships Evangelism & Missions Worldview
Students interested in participating in Disciple 6 will receive dedicated attention from a spiritually mature adult in a small group setting, and here the students will be challenged and encouraged to maturity in the faith. This means that there will be certain commitments that we ask them to meet. We believe that a small group setting is the most effective for discipleship, but we also provide 1-on-1 mentoring opportunities as well. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
