IMPACT Student Ministry is for 6th-12th grade. Understanding the myriad pressure and influence these students have, we endeavor to see our students "impacted" and having an "impact" through the power of the Gospel. With this goal in mind our students learn about missions, evangelism, Biblical theology, and how to engage the culture; while at the same time having fun with games and eventful trips, but our main focus is digging into scripture and living on mission for Christ. Students gather weekly in our 'Student Center' on Wednesdays at 6:15pm, enjoy 15-minutes of hanging out, then get started at 6:30pm. They also enjoy seasonal and special events at other times.
Currently, Philadelphia is partnering with a ministry called Student Ministry Architects (SMA), part of Youth Commission International (YCI), as we continue to expand and grow the Youth Ministry of our church. SMA is integral to improving our current Student Ministry, and is helping with the process of our church finding a new Youth Pastor at the time of God's choosing.
