Helping our students own their faith

We partner with parents to make disciples of the next generation. In our Student Ministry, we help our middle schoolers and high schoolers to own their faith, teaching them to know what they believe and to put those beliefs into action. We do this by focusing on three main areas: God, identity, and purpose.

Our students focus on three main things

Be with Jesus

Having our identity rooted in Jesus through daily abiding with Him.

Become like Jesus

Growing in biblical knowledge and understanding and allowing that to shape and inform our relationships and communities.

Do what Jesus did

Serving our city and our church with our time and talents and fulfilling the biblical mandate to love others and make disciples.


UNITE is our weekly ministry for middle schoolers and high schoolers

Our 6th – 12th graders gather weekly for UNITE to worship the Lord through teaching and community. The large group gathering is a lively time filled with games, fun challenges, videos, music and gospel-centered teaching from the Bible. Age and gender-based small groups meet after the large group time to discuss life, the teaching and curriculum.

6:45 pm - 8:30 pm



Huddles are our primary method of formal discipleship in the student ministry. They are small groups divided by grade and gender and aimed at providing a safe and familial community for our students to grow in their relationship with God. Each Huddle will also gather away from Citizens Church 2 — 3 times a semester to build rapport.


Safety protocol

We require all of our volunteers working with students to pass a regular background check and to complete a Ministrysafe training to ensure we do everything we can to keep our children protected and safe.

Our vision for family discipleship at Citizens

We love and value families at Citizens Church. Our hearts are to raise up the next generation, teaching our children to love and follow Jesus the rest of their lives. That said, we know that raising kiddos can be challenging and tiring. That’s why we partner with parents, supporting you with care and resources that will help with family discipleship.


We are always in need of volunteers in our Student ministry

Are you looking for a place to serve at Citizens Church? We encourage you to consider volunteering to help lead and minister to our middle school and high school students.

Have children in other age groups?

We have age-specific gospel-centered programming for your whole family. These environments are safe and secure, as we have strict processes and procedures, including background checks for all volunteers.
