Welcome to Berean Students

We exist to help students in 6-12th grade become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished by partnering with parents to make disciples in the home, weekly student gatherings with small groups, mission trips, student ministry teams, and amazing events designed to build a dynamic student community.

We are challenging our students and leaders to read through the New Testament in the first 90 days of 2021! Join us in seeking after Jesus in this way. We are giving away a hoodie to every student who completes this goal before April!

Missional Student

We launched missionalstudent.com in late 2018 as a tool to equip students to live on mission every day. Through blogs, podcasts, social media, and video content we hope to start a missional movement among the next generation. Our youth are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today!

Berean Students or SURGE as most insiders call it has a team of over 50 adult leaders who invest in our young people.

We take the safety of our students very seriously, all volunteers have been personally interviewed and background checked. Additionally, adult leaders are not permitted to be alone with students at any time.

Are you interested in serving as an adult leader in Berean Students? We would love to have you! E-mail Pastor Phil at pastorphil@bereanfamily.com or call the church at 419-756-3300.
