Elevate Student Ministry
Elevate Student Ministry, is a group of 7th through 12th grade students who love God and each other. We gather during the week for Wednesday night worship, games and small groups, and Sunday morning small group, to grow together in our relationship with Christ. Our desire is to challenge, support, pray with, and encourage each other as we seek to follow God in our lives. We invite you to begin or continue your spiritual journey with us as St. John's.
