Student Ministry at The Grove seeks to embody the church’s vision of “Glorifying God by making disciples of Jesus for the purpose of transforming our world”. A disciple is a follower of Jesus that help others follow Jesus. We seek to do that in three main ways:
Our hope is that students would connect to God and the church by engaging in Sunday morning services, Student Ministry gatherings and small groups. On an individual level, our hope is for them to connect to God through consistent personal devotions and prayer.
Our hope is that students will grow in their relationship with God through a vibrant connection to God and other believers, facilitated by dynamic teaching, small group discussions and accountability with peers and mentor leaders.
Our hope is that students will see their schools, sports teams, jobs, communities, clubs and all Student Ministry events as their opportunities to Go. As students mature in their relationship with God, they will also grow in their desire to share the hope of Jesus with everyone.

10:30am | Caribou, Maple Grove Parkway
For a lot of us, having a cup of coffee in the morning is normal part of how we start our day. If it’s not coffee then you likely have a routine. But some of us have a harder time making intentional time with Jesus a normal part of our day and that is sometimes because we just don’t know how. This summer we will be specifically trying to add tools to our belt to help us feel confident in opening up God’s Word and studying it on our own, as well as some helpful habits that can become part of our daily routine. We will also enjoy some coffee along the way.
Be sure to pay attention to time and locations for Summer joe as we change this around based on student’s availability and weather.
