HSM

Our student ministry is centered on one thing:  the gospel.

The story God has been writing since Creation is the same story that He has invited us into! Everything we do is driven by the truth of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  This is the most exciting and life-changing reality that exists, and we believe that it is only through the gospel that students truly become passionate about the Christian life!

Our mission is to glorify God by developing fully devoted followers of Christ (making disciples)!

Gospel-centered teaching

Wednesday Nights (6:30pm to 8:00pm): We utilize our gym to play basketball, dodge ball, etc. before gathering for student-led worship and teaching from one of our pastors or church leaders! We then break out into what we think is the heart of discipleship: our D-Groups. These are small groups in which students engage in gospel-centered discipleship with dedicated group leaders!

Sunday Mornings (9:00 am): Small group teaching time, meeting in the Hangar. 

Gospel-formed community

We believe that discipleship takes place within the context of gospel-formed
community. This is why our D-Groups are the focal point of our ministry. Our leaders are committed to pouring themselves out for our students in order to point them toward Christ! Our D-Groups don’t just meet on Wednesday nights! We engage with each other throughout the week in service, community, prayer, etc.

Gospel-driven multiplication

Church is not simply something we go to twice a week! It is the body of Christ on mission to bring glory to His name! We believe this starts by serving within our body, serving the city of Lakeland, and beyond! Our students are encouraged to plug into the various ministries of the church as well as the ministries we are engaged in throughout our city!
