Under One Student Ministry

Under One Student Ministry


“We are really looking forward to what God has in store for Under1 Student Ministries in 2014. As always, we are looking to shake things up in the way that we challenge students to passionately pursue Christ. This year, we have some awesome things planned including new Life Groups, a week of 24/7 prayer, two youth retreats, and a mission trip to Indianapolis, IN. We even have a new look for the ministry with the implementation of our new logo. Come check us out on a Sunday morning or Wednesday night. We’d love for you to join us.”

Zac Weaks
U1 Director of Student Ministries



Every ending is also a beginning.


We wish Bryan and Brittany Ball all the best in the next chapter of their story.  One of our students said it best…
Bryan and Brittany, thank you for EVERYTHING you both have ever done for me. Constantly I read in the Bible ways that Jesus wants us to live, and so many times, you both give me a visual on how that obedience looks. You two have challenged me, encouraged me, and loved me. Bryan, till this day I pray the surrender verse you told me the very first talk we had. Words don’t do justice to explain everything that I have gained from this relationship & how much it’s meant to me. Thank you for teaching me how to be a prayer warrior & a BIG dreamer. You two have single-handedly made the biggest impact in my life. Although it is hard to say goodbye to you as my youth pastor, I am so excited to welcome you in my life as my friends. I love you both so, so much. Thank you ♥   – Autumn Thornsberry

Community is happening in our Student Ministries.

Each Wednesday after service students are encouraged to hang out in a safe environment.

Pretty cool, huh?

Silver Ring Thing

“God never ceases to blow every expectation out of the water. Nearly 600 people showed up Wednesday night for the SRT event and over 100 students committed their lives to Christ and hundreds more committed to a life of purity. I couldn’t have asked for more. It was a night I will always remember as a highlight of my experiences in ministry for years to come.”

— Bryan Ball,  Student Ministries Director
