  • Students

    Students

    Middle School and High School Student Ministries | 6:30pm – 8:15pm Sundays North Way Students is a dynamic environment where middle and high school students (6-12th grade) are encouraged to experience, know and follow Jesus. Weekly Gatherings Our gatherings are filled with unpredictable fun, relevant teaching, and small group time – all designed to help students understand how to make sense of the questions they face in life and to live out what they are learning. Beyond our gatherings, North Way students experience incredible events and retreats, and have the opportunity to serve in ministry during our weekend services. And because we believe in partnering with parents, we equip families with application tools and resources to keep the conversation going beyond our student gatherings. Ultimately, as a student nears graduation, we are working to help pack that student’s bag with all that they need to own their faith as they move into the next phase of their life. Student Ministry Short Term Trips Student Ministry short term trips focus on partnering both with churches and established organizations on a local, national, and global scale. A cross-cultural ministry trip, whether around the world or to a city here at home, has the potential to be truly life-changing. You will be able to experience God and grow in your relationship with Him as you are removed from your day-to-day activities and routines. You will develop a God-centered perspective, allowing you to see your life at home through a new lens. You will serve others and live out the faith principles taught in Scripture as you grow, develop, and are challenged to truly practice your faith. You will grow in your relationship with the Lord, your teammates and leaders, and those in the community you enter. For more information about Wexford’s Student Ministry, email Vince Giordano.

What does it really look like to love the people around me? What did Jesus mean when He said to care for the orphan, the widow and the sojourner? Who is my neighbor? And where do we even begin?

During the two-day event, participants will hear powerful stories, compelling speakers, attend breakout sessions and meet other like-minded people interested in seeking justice and living out love in areas like mentoring, ministry to refugees, adoption and foster care, missions, human trafficking and embracing all life as made in the image of God.
Conference takes place November 10-11, 2017. Doors open at 6:00 pm .
