How many students are in each ministry?
The average group size varies from 15-40 students.
What can be expected from the kids who attend?
We are praying for a group of students who will encounter Jesus Christ in a saving and transforming relationship with Him. We look forward to seeing kids gain a deeper love for God, follow and embrace the teachings of Jesus, make friends with other Christian kids, serve others, and tell their friends about Jesus.
Isn’t it illegal for this ministry to run during after-school hours?
The United States Supreme Court upheld an Appellate Court ruling that allows for equal access. If a school has an “open campus” policy and allows other student groups to meet then it cannot discriminate based on the content of the group seeking the use of the facilities. Schools adopting a “closed campus” policy simply allows no groups to meet.
