Our mission is to lead middle and high school students in our community into relationship with Jesus Christ. As students grow in faith, we want to challenge them to boldly step into the plan and purpose God has for their lives.

You can find us @southside_student on Instagram.  Don't forget to say "Hi!"


I know now more than ever that our youth have the ability to change our culture for Christ right where they are today.

In fact, I claim this for my children as I pray for them. “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine according  to his work at is at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20-21.
