Trinity Student Ministry exists to connect students to Jesus Christ and to help them develop their own faith story which will lead them to live out the Gospel everyday.

If you spend any time around our church, you'll quickly learn one thing: we love students! They're smart. They're funny. They're bold. And they're bursting with potential. We genuinely believe that the middle and high school students in our midst are world changers in the making.

That's why student ministry is such a massive part of what we do at Trinity. We work hard to create environments that engage students in good conversation about God, encouraging them to ask questions, search out answers, and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives. We also work to create a judgment-free space for students to feel comfortable in fellowship with their peers working on their relationship with God.
