STUDENT LIFE

Welcome to Student Life, the youth ministry of Faithbridge. We are so excited that you are visiting us! 

Student Life is not just a somewhere for students to go, not just a place for students to have fun,  but a place where students learn who they are, serve our community, and connect with each other. But most importantly Student Life is a place where kids from 6th to 12th grade worship our incredible God together. 


We believe that students who attend Student Life gatherings and events will find out who they were created to be. They will find out who Jesus really is. We believe our students will develop into young men and women who not only seek out Jesus but develop a desire to seek out others who don’t yet know Him.



Together, we are Student Life. Together, we Worship, Connect and Serve!
