Youth Ministry


"RiverOaks Student Ministry has a Vision to be a Youth Family of disciples who love Jesus CHRIST, make Him our LIFE, and leave a LEGACY as disciple-makers."

At RiverOaks, our Student Ministry is not a separate ministry disconnected from the beauty of the local church, but seeks to be an integral part of its glorious body (1 Cor. 12:12-20), while also addressing the unique needs and challenges of teenagers in a post-modern and post-Christian world. With a secular culture trying to escape this world, and a Christian culture hoping to avoid it, we aim to be a part of the Church which follows Jesus into it, humbly bearing the Cross.

Our junior and senior high students meet weekly for worship on Sunday nights @ 6:30-8:00p (called theAwakening) in the Youth and Activities Building. Our Jr. High & Sr. High LifeGroups meet separately in the homes of youth families on Wednesday evenings during the school year. Throughout the summer and over spring/fall breaks there are also opportunities to attend youth camps, mission trips, and fall retreats.
