Our student ministry for middle and high school students (6th - 12th grades) includes Student Discipleship Classes, our mid-week service, theDispersion, quarterly events (retreats, Summer camp, service projects, fellowships, etc...), and access to our host of faithful volunteers who love building relationships with students for the purpose of giving them wise, biblical counsel, sharing the gospel, and discipling them. We also seek to equip our parents with gospel-centered resources to shepherd the hearts of their students by offering parenting classes and access to biblically-based books on parenting.
Oak Park Student Ministry's Mission: Equipping the students and families entrusted to us and engaging those in our reach with the compelling gospel of grace for their life-changing joy and life-long discipleship
Midweek Student Ministry
Our mid-week student ministry, theDispersion, meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00pm during the Fall and Spring semesters (following Greater Clark County School schedule).
We have a short game time in the gym, a worship service led by our student band in theLOFT (our student ministry multi-purpose room), a twenty-five minute message from God’s Word, age/gender separate small group discussion led by our volunteers, and a snack/hangout time.
This weekly event is our greatest outreach to the surrounding community with the life-changing gospel of grace!
Open gym runs the hour before theDispersion starts from 5:30 – 6:30pm each Wednesday as well!
Student Discipleship Classes
Every Sunday morning during the discipleship hour (9:00 – 10:00am), our students gather in theLOFT for quarterly classes on topics in the categories of Bible, theology, worldviews, and spiritual disciplines. Our classes emphasize equipping our students with God’s Word for their joy, life-long discipleship, and for the work of ministry!
