STUDENT MINISTRY

FOR GRADES 6-12

Helping students live with Jesus, in community, and on mission

Welcome!

BBC Students is a place for every student (grades 6-12) as they encounter Jesus and His church. We want students to know they’re loved and cared for. We want them to see that their identity is in Jesus, not in their snaps, tik toks, or stories. Our goal is simply this: We want students to know Jesus and to follow in Him. Ultimately we want students not just to find a place to belong here at BBC Students; we want them to live with Jesus on a daily basis, in community with their Small Group, and on a mission to unleash a revolution of love in the homes, schools, teams, and wherever they go!

We also have several retreats for students to have fun through engaging games, small group activities, and powerful worship experiences. 

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Wednesday Nights, 6:30-8pm

(During the school year, with some exceptions to be posted.)

At The HUB (11952 Hancock St., across the parking lot). Doors open at 6pm.

Each week we spend our first hour in a large group. During this time, we provide engaging worship, solid biblical teaching, and chances to respond to the Gospel. We connect relevant Scripture with students’ everyday lives and issues, so they can learn how to respond as a follower of Jesus. Students are encouraged to invite friends to join them!

During our second hour, students meet with their small group. Each small group is broken up by gender and grade. These are led by the same adult leader(s) every week, so students have a consistent mentor guiding them in their relationship with Jesus. We don’t want a student to stay anonymous in our ministry, so we surround them with other students and leaders who know their name and their story. Small groups are important because we truly believe that learning and growing together leads to more healthy, Christ-filled lives!

Our Current Series: ON THE FLIP SIDE

When Jesus was on earth, he wasn’t exactly known for telling people what they wanted to hear. Jesus’ message was unlike any message people had ever heard before. He didn’t give shallow motivational speeches or feel-good sermons. He didn’t recycle the same messages other religious leaders were teaching. He flipped people’s ideas about God, the world, and themselves completely upside down — usually in uncomfortable ways. And that’s always how God’s words have worked! In this series, we’ll compare Jesus’ words in the Gospels with the words of the Old Testament prophets to see how God’s words have always challenged our understanding of what’s wrong or right, good or bad, and just or unjust. We’ll talk about how, both then and now, God flips our assumptions about who God values, our definition of righteousness, our understanding of what’s good enough, and our definition of justice.

Resources

SPIRITUAL TRACKER APP

 

This is an app that we are encouraging students to use which helps track their spiritual habits. Our hope is that they will use it all year to grow spiritually alongside their friends, family and small group. Whether it’s prayer, worship, going to church, reading the Bible or loving people with their actions, this app will help them set goals and track their progress. The app is safe for teens to share with people that they trust so they can encourage and celebrate each other when they make progress on their spiritual habits – and in their spiritual growth. If students don’t want to use the app, we have paper trackers available at The HUB too!
