High School Ministry (HSM)
Our vision is to connect students to Jesus for transformed lives through relationships that matter.
The Link is a monthly gathering of students from both the O'Fallon and Shiloh campuses. The Link meets on the first Sunday of each month. We gather the students to worship together, play games, eat food, and kick off the sermon series for Life Groups for the rest of the month.
House Groups meet the 2nd-4th Sundays of each month from 6-8pm, with students and leaders meeting in homes across the Metro East. Life Group Leaders with the guidance of House Group Coaches lead these events. Students are encouraged to step up and lead in their groups as well to take ownership of the ministry. There is time for the group to meet all together and also small group time in which students meet in gender-specific groups.
React is our next level of student leadership which happens the first Thursday of each month at the Shiloh Campus. At React our adult leaders pour into the student leaders to help them own their personal ministry, disciple their peers in their House Groups, schools, teams, work, and beyond.
Third Thursdays are a monthly outreach event on the third Thursday of every month during the school year. This provides a fun, non-threatening space for students to invite their friends to be connected to students and adults who love Jesus.
During our weekend services, high school students are encouraged to attend and serve with their families.
