Woodburn Baptist Student Ministry
Grades 7-12
 
The passion of Woodburn Baptist Student Ministry is to teach, model, and provide opportunities for experiences that lead to a life of transformation and purpose. Our goal is
to see teens who are far from God brought into a growing relationship with
Christ and then be sent out on mission for Jesus. By the time a teenager graduates from high school they should have the tools and desire necessary for continuous growth in their relationship with God, be connected to others in the church who model what it is to
live for and love Christ, and go out into the world and make disciples.

Youth Worship: This is our large group meeting time that is full of energy, fun, youth-led worship, and relevant messages designed to meet youth where they are.

When: Wednesday Nights from          6:00-7:30 pm

Where: 1st Floor of the NEXT Center in the Cafe

Who: 7th-12th Grade
 
 
 
 
Small Groups: Our small groups have the goal of connecting teens together in a safe environment to foster friendships, teach Biblical principles, and find the encouragement and support to live out a Christ-like life. This is the heart of our youth ministry. Life-change happens best in the framework of a small group.
 
Small groups are divided into gender and grade so that each student can interact with other students in the same phase of life.
 
 

Student Impact: This is an increasingly  important area of our student ministry. Students can lead in various ministries throughout the church. If a teen wants to serve as a small group leader for children, run sound, be a greeter, run lights in a service, etc. the desire can be filled. Students can also serve as leaders of their own ministry helping the student pastor with the operation of the student ministry, as well as, the direction of the ministry. If a student is interested in serving they need to talk to Jason or their small group leader. 

FAQ’s:
 
What is Youth Worship?
This is our Wednesday night large group worship experience for students in 7th-12th grade. This program includes worship, biblical teaching, small groups, and tons of fun. We also have other events throughout the year including day trips, DNow, summer camp, retreats, and mission trips.
 
How are small groups formed?
We create groups based on gender and grade. Our desire is that students have friends in their small groups because the level of accountability and the depth of relationships increase when students see friends from their small groups on a daily or weekly basis. Each group is formed differently, and we will work with you to create the best experience possible.
 
How are students connected to a small group?
Each Wednesday night, first-time students are encouraged to speak to Jason or another adult leader after the large group speaker presentation.  He will connect that student to the small group that best suits his or her needs.
Each Sunday morning at 9:45am, first-time students are invited to attend either the middle school or high school small group.  Here they will be able to connect, learn more about what we do at Woodburn.  Many of our students serve on Sunday mornings, so once a student is familiar with the church, if he or she desires to serve in that time, we will connect them to the area where their abilities will be best utilized.
 
How do students serve in the church? 
We call our student servant ministry Student Impact. This is the program that helps students find their opportunities to serve in JAM City Kids, JAM City Jr., or many other avenues on Sunday mornings. Whether it’s setting up, leading a small group, or helping run production, there are many ways to get involved. Students who want to serve should tell their small group leaders.
