Student Ministries

St. Thomas' Student Ministries: Grades 6th-12th

THE BIG GOALS

  • Being comfortable in their faith
  • Taking on a leadership role
  • Being an independent believer
  • Taking hold of their own faith
  • Having a personal relationship with Christ
  • Equipping them with skills to pursue their own faith

THE SPECIFICS: HOW WE GET THERE

So that we can achieve the big goals, we have implemented some specific strategies. First, we want to teach them how to pray like it is an intimate conversation with Christ. We want them to learn how to dig deeper into scripture and see how the Lord speaks through the words on the page. We teach the students to show everyone the love of Christ, in all social situations. This will foster friendships with non-Christians and let them be “Ambassadors of Christ”. Last but not least, we want them to always remain humble in their faith and know that there is room to grow
