Temple Students teaches our students not only how God sees them, but how He has gifted them for such a time as this. There is something special that happens when a teenager finds their God-given purpose. When they discover their gifts, and begin to sharpen them and apply them God moves in and through them. Our prayer is that your student develops a foundation while in student ministry that sets them up to succeed in life!

“Hey guys! I have a passion for seeing young people come alive in Christ and putting their faith into action! When it comes to youth ministry, my philosophy is that teenagers hold the key to their youth group. So I love getting students plugged into discipleship, serving, and leadership roles by encouraging them to make the youth group their own. I also love hearing your questions because some of the biggest questions we have about faith happen when we are teenagers. I may not have all the answers, but I would love to help you find them.”
