Journey Students

Journey Student ministry is known as StreCo, a combination of STRENGTH and COURAGE.  We currently meet every Wednesday evening during the school year in our Student Center. Doors open at 6PM and we conclude at 8:30PM. 7th-12th grade students are welcome to join us each week for discipleship and fellowship.

                

1 Corinthian’s 16:13-14 tells us, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” As followers of Jesus, we are here to encourage you and others in a relationship with Him.

StreCo exists to call students into their primary identity as ones who are deeply loved by God, inviting them to live a Spirit-empowered lifestyle of holiness and wholehearted love for God. We aim to gather and connect students to live a life of prayer in the power of the Spirit and to walk in lifelong partnership with God and His purposes for their life. 

Come and see for yourself.

NEW COVID UPDATE concerning JF Student Ministry (Updated November 2021)

We are doing everything we can to make sure that your student is safe during this pandemic. 2021 will be an outstanding year for your student to get engaged. We will remain diligence in keeping a safe and sanitized atmosphere each day of the week. Also, we are planning a host of events that your students can be involved in both on-site and off-site,  please visit one of our social media pages for info.

During all events masks are not mandatory for students but encouraged for all individuals. We ask that you carefully consider your peers and surroundings when attending any event and be mindful of your sanitation practices. We encourage all volunteers to be vaccinated and/or schedule your vaccination; however, this is not mandatory. 

We understand that it is a parents/guardians right to keep their student from attending any event due to their family safety protocol and we acknowledge this call. We care for your student and will support this decision for their safety. Keep in mind that we will also do everything to keep them safe while they attend any event of the student ministry and highly encourage their involvement at all of our gatherings. 


If you are a student in need of prayer,
