Our student ministry creates environments for every student to experience the gospel of grace and understand how that changes us, our church, our city and our world.

Orangewood Student Ministry longs to be a place where every student experiences the gospel of grace. We pray often that the next generation (yep, your teenager is the next generation of church leaders…some people say that is scary, we say it is exciting!) will have a tangible understanding of the Lord’s grace and how that changes us, our church, our city and our world.

We hope to be an environment that anybody can come in and get connected to other believers who are struggling with the same things they are. We know that often teenagers feel like they are in this life alone. Our hope is that your student will experience a community of broken believers who rest in Jesus to bring us together.

If you have any questions about our ministry or ways that your student can get involved, please email Director of Student Ministries, Jared Jones, or Assistant Director of Student Ministries, Sarah Jane Creech.
