Students at River West Church

Our desire is to disciple students to be a community of Christ impacting the world. We connect junior high, high school, and college students with Jesus Christ, the church, and Christ's mission. This happens as students worship, learn, serve, and engage in community with each other.

High Schoolers for Hire

Help students raise funds so they can travel to the Dominican Republic and serve by providing jobs—anything from manual labor (cleaning, building, painting, lawn mowing) to babysitting/ housesitting to other odd-jobs you might come up with.

Junior High

Students in 6th-8th grades.

The middle school years can be a significant time of learning how to make friends, engage in community, and all the while still wanting to be a kid. In our Junior High Ministry, we hope to create a space for students to come, play, and engage in a space where they feel seen, known, and loved. And in that space, they would find themselves encountering the one, true, living God who has and will always see, know, and love them. We gather weekly to intentionally engage in community through activities and meaningful conversations on the Bible and the Christian faith.


  • JH Group | Sundays | 11am-12:30pm | Student Ministry Room
    Junior High students (6th-8th grade): You’re invited to join us each Sunday for worship, teaching, and small groups. We focus on Christ and His priorities for your life as you connect with friends and leaders.Join us this fall as we study the book of John and see the beauty of Jesus!
  • JH MidWeek | Wednesdays | 6:30-8pm | Student Ministry Room
    Take a pause from the craziness of the week and meet us at MidWeek! You can expect fun games, dinner, and conversations that encourage students to grow in their understanding of the Gospel. This fall, we’ll be watching clips from The Chosen and reading the correlating Bible passages. We’ll discuss the differences and similarities. We are purposefully looking at the life of Jesus, how He did life with the disciples, the impact of His ministry, and the life He invites us into.

High School

Students in 9th-12th grades.

Community is a necessity. We desire for our High School Ministry to continue to be a place that reflects the larger church body. What you can expect is a group of students and leaders who love the Lord and are seeking Him together. This group reflects the hospitable nature of Jesus by how they welcome others in. We hope to grow in our worship and affection for Christ and His Word, and in turn deepen our relationships with each other.

    High School Group provides students a place to learn about Jesus, worship Jesus, and engage with other high school students working out what it looks like to follow Him!

Join us this fall as we study the book of John and see the beauty of Jesus!
