GROW DEEP TEEN MINISTRY 

Our purpose is to establish and nurture teens in sound application of truth. We seek to establish strong, lasting relationship with our students and walk beside them as they try to navigate their teen years. A crucial time in a student’s life is the transition from middle school into the first years of high school. Responsibilities are established as one moves from childhood into adulthood.  It is at this age that values are established and decisions about faith are cemented. That is why Grow Deep Teen School exists.

Our mission is to reach out to 9th-11th grade students providing a place of fellowship and growth, where we can connect with God and with each other. Our prayer is for teens to see Jesus as the answer, getting the opportunity to know Him better through bible study, small groups, and church fellowship.

Navigating a Hyper-Sexualized Culture

Today’s children and teens are bombarded with a distorted view of human sexuality. Schools and churches are ill-equipped to help kids to develop healthy opposite sex relationships and to understand all that God designed sex to be. Kids are counting on their parents to help them to navigate these critical developmental years. Depending on the ages of your kids, you might want to start by checking out the five developmental checklists they have created and can be found on the link. They represent a simple place to start coaching your kids.

CELL PHONE CONTRACT

At the end of the day, our kids are good people who we love and trust (well most of the time). What we need to do is empower our teens to make good decisions with their technology-to help them understand that a cell phone, like all privileges, is a responsibility. .
