The heart behind Student Ministry is to see students grow to Love God, Love People, and Serve Our World. With that in mind, nothing we do in our ministry is random. Our weekly events & programming, retreats, mission trips and more are built with purpose.The layout below is designed to walk you through engagement steps that will meet your son/daughter right where they're at. For more information on each step, check out our quick start guides above.
Each week, students gather to hang out, make new friends, play totally ridiculous games, learn from caring adult leaders, build deeper friendships, and hear an engaging, life-changing message about Jesus, the Bible, and faith. We will post opportunities to engage in this first step here as they come up.
After students have become a part of our gather process, we want to begin to grow them through this equipping step. Learning what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, how to study the Bible, how to live out my faith, and live a life of prayer is all apart of this step.
A56 - This class happens at that 11:30 hour and is open to all 5th and 6th grade students. The group looks at basic biblical concepts in a class and discussion setting.
CJV - Our NEW Deep End model will give students a chance to be a part of intentional discipleship. Though enrollment is open, students must sign up by clicking here
(Currently there is no CJV 7th/8th class. We are running training's for the West Virginia Missions Trip. Regular Deep End will resume July 7)
FUSION - Our intentional leadership and discipleship program is already in full swing for the SPRING session. Check back here this summer to sign up for the next session in the Fall.
After jumping into gathering and growing, a student's next step is to serve and lead.Whether that's joining Black Rock's serving culture on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights (for High School Students), or joining Student Leadership, there are many ways that students can begin to live out their faith at Black Rock.
Lead the Cause is an intensive domestic missions trip designed to challenge students to a deeper level of discipleship. This trip is meant to not only give ministry opportunities in Denver, but also is meant to empower and equip students to continue in a ministry lifestyle for years to come.

This will be our fifth trip down to Rosedale.

With amazing worship, teaching, and serving- students grew immensely in their love for the Lord and their love for others demonstrated through service. 2015 was an incredible year with amazing leaders, skilled craftsmen, and students! God did amazing things through our service and our prayers! In 2017, our amazing team of 82 not only brought hope to helpless situations when it came to home repair, but hearts were opened to the life changing truth of the Gospel.
