Mountainview Student Ministry

Experience that Makes a Difference

Our student ministry team has years of experience working with students from junior high through college. Your student will benefit from a team approach that will prepare your student for the challenges they face.

Family Ministry Approach

We believe that parents are the key to the spiritual growth of their children. That is why our student ministry team works closely with our Mountainview Kids team to provide a comprehensive approach to family ministry.

An Active Student Ministry

One of the reasons many people move to South Denver is because of the great schools that are available for their kids. We believe having a great church community is even more important. It’s one of the reasons we have invested in a growing student ministry. Your student will have weekly opportunities to grow closer to God and to other students and adult sponsors. In addition, they will be challenged to develop a spirit of service through regular service opportunities. Learn more below.

Fall Refresh Retreat 2018

September 28-30
$135

Our annual fall retreat is coming soon, and we hope you will join us for a weekend away at the beautiful and fun Ponderosa Retreat Center! We’ll take a needed break from school and the business of life to spend time together growing in our faith and having fun. The Fall Refresh is all about fun times together, traditions (campfire anyone?), worship, great speakers, small group times, quiet times and awesome activities. We hope you can come!

Our theme this year is Relentless: are you willing to pursue Jesus in a way where nothing else comes first?

Cost is $135 and covers meals, lodging, transportation, and supplies. Please don’t let cost be the reason you don’t come, we have scholarships available!

Regular Weekly Programming

Sunday Morning 4:12

We believe small groups are an important part of our walk with Christ and our spiritual growth. They help us build community with fellow Christians, discuss and learn about the Bible together, and figure out what it means to be the Church here in this world. As a student ministry we feel that small groups give our students a safe place to talk about their lives and learn to support and encourage one another. It gives them positive interactions with Christian adults who take an interest in their lives, and helps them learn about Christian Community. Our student LifeGroups begin with food and hangout time,  a short teaching and then spend most of 4:12 in our age and gender specific small groups.

All grades 6th-12th meet on Sunday mornings at 9 am. We encourage parents to serve in one of our weekend ministries (such as children’s) while their student is in class and then to worship together during another service.

Wednesday Night ENGAGE (during the school year)

Our mid-week programming known as “ENGAGE” takes place each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 pm and meets in the Youth Room. More often than not bringing friends to church can be scary and intimidating. For a student who has never been to church before many of the things we do seem weird, and talking about the Bible can be hard to understand. So at Mountainview we have Engage, a place where students can bring their friends to experience church in a way that makes them feel welcomed, cared for, have fun, and hear the gospel in ways they can understand and relate to.

At Engage we do many different things. Perhaps one night will be a game night. Another night we may have music and hear a testimony from someone willing to share their story of coming to Christ with teenagers. Maybe one night we’ll do a service project or watch a movie!
