Resources for Students

Young people are the church of TODAY, which is why we are committed to providing outlets that nurture and invigorate their love for God and His people. We want to see students grow in their faith and make lifelong friends along the way!

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12
