    Student Ministry
    Wednesdays, 6:30–8:00 PM

    Worship, Bible study, fun & fellowship for students!

    Join us for our new season of IGNITE!

    Wednesdays, 6:30–8:00 PM, Calvary Life Center

    Students get connected, have fun with friends, and grow in their faith at IGNITE on Wednesday nights!

    We begin our evening with worship led by our Student Worship Band in CLC 1400. Then students split for Bible teaching and discussion — high school stays in CLC 1400, and middle school goes to CLC 1300.

    • Middle School Series — with Pastor Micah Burdett
      Join us for our current series on "Prayer" through the remaining Spring season. 
    • High School Series — with Pastor Cameron Engle
      On April 17, we'll begin a short study on Islam, Catholicism, and Gnosticism. We will examine the truths claimed by each religion and compare them to God’s Word, the ultimate Truth (John 17:17). Plus we will learn how to share the Gospel with those who claim these beliefs. 

    Join us for IGNITE each week, and deepen your relationship with Christ!

    Connecting Students & Senior Adults

    In this new ministry, Calvary high school seniors are invited to partner with a senior adult or senior adult couple for consistent prayer and relationship building.

    Senior2Senior is an intergenerational approach to encouraging, supporting, and caring for families through the spiritual formation of their teenagers. In this ministry, senior adults will commit to praying for their assigned students and writing letters/notes of encouragement throughout their 12th-grade year. (All participating adults will undergo a background check.)

    Students will pray for their assigned senior adult(s) and update them about their lives and prayer requests once a month.

    If you're interested in being part of this ministry, please contact Pastor Cameron!

    Contacts: Pastor Cameron Engle, 704.887.3678, cengle@calvarychurch.com,  Jennifer Porras, 704.341.5320, jporras@calvarychurch.com, or Beau Abbott 704.341.5354, babbott@calvarychurch.com

    Student Ministry Leaders
    Learn more about our team!  

    Do you have a passion for making a difference in the lives of the next generation? Consider volunteering with our Student Ministry team. As our ministry grows, there are many opportunities to serve!

    Sunday PM Event Volunteers

    Selected Sundays during the school year, 5:30–7:30 PM
    Locations include the CLC/Gym/Fields

    • Student Ministry offers a fellowship and outreach event during selected Sunday evening worship services each month. Students participate in a short devotion and enjoy organized games and competitions, usually planned around a fun theme. It's so important to have responsible adult volunteers to help activities run smoothly and monitor crowd control. We need more volunteers to support this fun outreach time!

    IGNITE Small Group Leaders

    Wednesdays during the school year, 6:30–8:00 PM
    In the Calvary Life Center

    • In this role, you will guide a weekly conversation with a group of students and help them apply truths from the message at IGNITE. We provide discussion questions beforehand to help you. You’ll need to spend about 30 minutes reviewing the Scripture passages and questions each week. The small group time lasts about 20 minutes. A short training is provided.

    Student Life Group Leaders

    Sundays year-round, 11:15 AM–12:30 PM
    In the Calvary Life Center

    • Adults who feel called to disciple students are encouraged to teach a Student Life Group. This role requires an hour or two of preparation each week, studying the curriculum and Bible lessons. Most SLG teaching schedules are set so that leaders may still attend an Adult Life Group regularly. Mandatory training is provided.

    In each of these roles, your ministry is to share God's love and model a Christ-transformed life as you care about Calvary students and build relationships with them. The hours you invest will have an eternal impact! 

    Volunteers must have attended Calvary for at least six months, be a Calvary member, complete the training and approval process, and pass a background check. 

    Complete the form below to let us know you're interested. We'll be in touch about opportunities to serve!
