GraceStudents

During a student’s adolescent/teenage years, many lifelong decisions are made and patterns developed. It’s critical for both their present and future that they’re grounded in the Word of God, develop deep and God-honoring friendships, be discipled by caring adult mentors, and have opportunities to stretch their faith while growing deep roots in the body of Christ. Grace Students comes alongside students and their parents to help them develop into devoted followers of Jesus.
