Meet our Youth Pastors

Pastors Ben & Alyssa Archer

As the Student Ministry Pastors, Ben and Alyssa Archer are responsible for pastoring and overseeing our middle school, high school, and young adult ministries. Their heart: helping people walk in God’s unconditional love, no matter their age.

Sozo in Schools

Life with God is about applying your faith in the real world, not just within the four walls of church. There are now many SOZO groups at area high schools.

The meetings take place during lunch breaks. Your student can expect great music, a quick message, and a place for them to connect with friends.

Parent Connection

We’re here to partner with you.

We know how important it is for you to be informed about your student’s spiritual walk. We’d love to connect with you! You can join our Parent Connect Facebook Page for the latest updates and information.

Our team is here not only to support your students but to partner with you. We are here to provide the connections and resources you need.

Do students need to register or check in?

We ask that students check in every service so they can be properly placed in the correct small group with the same students and leaders every week.

Can my student pick their small group?

Small groups are assigned based on gender, grade, and zip code. We want to set students up to have relationships at school with their small group peers. However, if their assigned small group is not working out, we can assign them to another.

What if my student can't come every week to small group, will that affect anything?

Whatever their attendance, they are always welcome. However, consistency is a key in building relationships. If the student doesn’t come for a few weeks in a row, the student’s small group leader will follow up to make sure everything is okay.

What if my student is having a hard time connecting with their group and wants to switch?

We ask each student to attend their small group for 4-6 weeks. If they have a hard time after that, we will assign them another small group.
