Vision for THRIVE JR. HIGH

It’s not easy being a 7th or 8th grade student these days. Peer pressure, sports commitments, schoolwork, hectic schedules and tough decisions can make you say, “I’m trying not to lose my head.” Life can be hard. But our hero, King, and Living God Jesus Christ is always good!

We believe that Jesus is the answer to the madness of our world. At Thrive JH, you can learn what it means to know Jesus in a daily, active relationship that satisfies you fully. We want to encourage you to LOVE Jesus, to LIVE Jesus, to LOOK to Jesus, and to THRIVE!

Our desire is to see students fully committed to Jesus; running the race that has been set before them. Our heart is that you would not just survive Jr. High, but that you would THRIVE!

Love Jesus – Live Jesus – Look to Jesus

Mission Statement Jr. High Ministry

That every student would love Jesus, (“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.” Matt. 22:37) would live like Jesus (“And live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us…” Eph. 5:2), and would continue a life looking to Jesus (“Looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” Heb. 12:2)
