Journey Students

Journey Student ministry is known as StreCo, a combination of STRENGTH and COURAGE.                 

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.
