Creating opportunities for students to have “mountaintop experiences”
with God that prepare
them to impact
their world together.
 Apex Students exists to create opportunities for students grades 6 thru 12 to have “mountaintop experiences” with God that prepare them to impact their world together. We do this by facilitating an atmosphere where students can WORSHIP God, CONNECT with one another, SERVE through ministry, and REACH our community with His love. We join together on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm for corporate worship and biblical teachings in the lower level of the Student Ministry Center. We then separate into small groups that are led by adult leaders who help our students process the material with age appropriate discussion and application.
