Student Ministries


Junior and Senior High Student Ministry of Desert Hills

Our purpose is to come alongside parents and families to encourage them to disciple their teenagers to love God, serve one another, and reach the world. We want to help teens grow in their spiritual faith through personal discipleship with adult mentors and serving in various ministries in the church. We meet at various times throughout the year for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and special events.

Sunday School, Sunday Mornings 9am

Join us every Sunday morning for our Sunday School time in Room 204 of the CE Building. During this time, we aim to cover a multitude of topics throughout the year, including: Christian basics, Bible studies, History/Theology, Christian Life, Christian Growth, etc… This time provides the opportunity for Jr and Sr High students to come together, learn, and discuss many different topics that we believe are essential to the Christian faith.

This Spring (Mar.-May), we are continuing our Spring in Psalms series. Every Spring we teach through one Psalm every week here are the Psalms we’ll be going through this year:

Third Sunday Bible Study

On the third Sunday of every month, after the evening Communion Service, we are holding bible studies for our teen students. These monthly bible studies are separate bible studies for the guys and girls, and they are meant for growth, fellowship, teaching, encouragement, and conviction.

The guys are studying through John MacArthur’s 1 & 2 Peter bible study book. The girls are studying through A Girl After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George

Youth Sessions

Youth Sessions are a mini-conference with the goal of informing, encouraging, and serving our teens. Each conference will touch on a theme or subject that is practical to the life of teenagers and their families. They take place Friday night through early Saturday afternoon and include food, times of worship and teaching, small group discussions, and games. We hope to partner with other churches in the area soon to be able to reach a wide area of teens throughout the Valley.

Next Youth Session conference is TBA.

Annual Events

Camp Regen

Every Summer, we take a trip to Camp Regeneration, which is hosted by Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA. Camp Regen is an amazing camp that is focused on evangelizing and discipling youth through in-depth Biblical teaching, small group discussion, worship, fun, and fellowship.

Camp Regen 2017 takes place June 29 – July 3. If your teen is interested in going, I need to know by February 2. $75 deposits will be due by March 13.

We have fundraisers happening all throughout this Winter and Spring to help raise funds for Camp Regen. If you need more info, please contact Jeff below.

Magic Mountain

Due to lack of interest, our fall Magic Mountain trip has been cancelled for 2016. Let’s try to get enough interest for 2017!
