Middle School & High School Students
Reality Student Ministry is built around the desire to see students become fully-devoted followers of Jesus for life. We want to do more than teach or entertain. We want to form real and lasting relationships with students that create an environment for true and lasting discipleship.
Reality has a huge, loving, and involved staff devoted to reaching and connecting students to each other and to God. From our Class Pastors and Staff to our Reality Grandparents, our goal is to love students and show them the life-changing power of Jesus!
Reality takes place on Wednesday nights where students can hang out in the Reality Cafe and the Reality Game Room and attend service in the Reality Room (Middle School at 6:30pm and High School at 7:30pm). On the weekends, Reality attends the 10am and 6pm services together in the Sanctuary. Connections Classes are at 8:30am and 11:30am – students hangout in the Reality Area for while and then head to their classes with their Class Pastors and Staff.

Every Student Matters to God
The class pastors are the most influential people in our students' spiritual journey. They are volunteers who dedicate themselves to developing life-long followers of Jesus. They make an eight-year commitment which begins at a student's 6th grade year and lasts to the end of their freshman year of college. The class pastors are the primary disciples for their class and the catalyst for spiritual and relational growth.
