Next Wave: 6th - 12th Grade

Next Wave is our student ministry (youth group) for students in 6th-12th grade. We meet throughout each month to help students grow in their faith with Crews and combined fun events. On Sunday mornings, we want our students to serve in strategic areas like Love Kids, Facilities, Guest Experience, and Tech. Next Wave also offers regular retreats and serving opportunities to help students grow in their relationship with God and each other.

Next Wave offers several ways to get connected to leaders and other students through monthly events and Rally Nights. We strive to create fun, welcoming, and safe environments for all students. If you’d like upcoming event details, check out our Church Calendar.
