In Calvary Middle School Ministry, we focus on equipping students in grades 6–8 to have an authentic, growing relationship with Jesus Christ and live in a way that impacts the world by making Him known — in their neighborhoods, school, community, and beyond.

Grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events.

    IGNITE
    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
      We're in a new series called "The Gospel for Everyday Life." Join us and learn how the Gospel impacts every part of our lives, including salvation, identity, forgiveness, purpose, and more.  
    • High School Series — with Pastor Cameron Engle
      Our next teaching series, "I AM," from the book of John, runs from January 31 through March 20. Jesus makes seven “I am” statements in which He claims to be The Bread, The Light, The Door, The Good Shepherd, The Resurrection, The Way, and The Vine. These statements help us better understand Jesus’ ministry, as well as His supremacy and identity as Lord and Savior. 

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

    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!
