Welcome to Bay Area’s Student Ministry.
Our goal is to help students in sixth grade through college develop such passion for Jesus and compassion for others that they don’t graduate from their faith when they graduate from our ministry. We seek to accomplish this by encouraging students to develop a personal relationship with God, creating environments where they can build Christ-centered relationships with fellow students and caring adults, and helping them discover God’s calling for their lives to impact their spheres of influence. Real-world teaching, worship, relational activities, caring outreach and a whole lot of fun are just some of the elements students will experience as part of what God is doing within our student ministry.

If we could boil down our ministry to two main ideas,
it would be Person & Place.
We desire that every student who enters our doors would be known by a safe, caring, trained adult leader. These leaders serve as mentors, helping students make good, godly decisions. In addition, these leaders are secondary voices in the lives of students; reinforcing the words of a student’s primary influencer – the parent.
We want to create places and events where students are known and can know others in safe, welcoming and fun environments. When all of these elements are at work, a student can best receive the life-changing power of God’s Word.
We want students to understand that God loves them, and has a plan for how they can spend eternity in Heaven with Him. In addition, we want students to know that God also has a plan for how He wants them to spend their lives here on Earth. It’s an exciting, special, and specific plan that is waiting to be discovered.
