ELEVATE Student Ministry
“Elevate Christ, Encourage Others”
Elevate Student Ministry is designed for teens in 6th-12th grade.
At Desert Hills Baptist Church we believe students are valuable to God and to our world. Because of this, we desire to promote a simple, strategic, Christ-centered environment for students to thrive in as they go through some of the most crucial years of their lives.
Elevate Student Ministry Mission:
We have a four-fold purpose for our student ministry. (1) We desire to see students Connect to God and each other as they build lasting relationships through events and activities. (2) We desire to see students Grow in their knowledge of God and His Word through Bible studies and special services. (3) We desire to see students Serve God and others through community outreach and service opportunities. (4) We desire to see students Go and tell others about the hope that only Christ can bring through community outreach and neighborhood evangelism.
Students Ministry Connection Groups:
• ELEVATE Connect Group, Sunday Evenings—At 5pm, students meet at the Refuge for group fellowship and in-depth Bible study to learn the truth of God’s Word and build relationships with each other
• ELEVATE Youth Group, Wednesday Evenings—At 7pm, students meet at the Refuge for a special time of worship, community and applicable lessons to help them navigate the teen years as a follower of Jesus.
• Monthly Activities and Fellowships—Each month students have multiple opportunities to be involved at Elevate, whether through a Sunday evening fellowship or a weekend activity. From camps and retreats to fun game nights or local activities—students are encouraged to build lasting relationships as they connect with God and each other, all while learning eternal truth from God’s Word through being a part of Elevate Student ministry.
