students need a place to connect.

The Student Ministry program at River West Church connects junior high, high school, and college students with Jesus Christ, the community of Christ, and the mission of Christ. This happens as students worship, learn, serve, and hang out together. 

Our mission is to raise students who find their identity, purpose, and hope in the Gospel of Christ. We aim to equip every student that walks through our doors with:

  • Informed Mindsevery time we gather we seek to teach students about who God is and who they are!
  • Enflamed Heartsour gatherings are marked by numerous opportunities to worship because we believe faith is more than an intellectual exercise.
  • Engaged Lives throughout the year we encourage students to live missionally as lights in the darkness, knowing that true faith is lived out in love. 

Students in 6th-8th grades.
