STUDENTS (7th-12th grade)

Diverse_city is a place where students come to worship. This is a place for students to connect in gospel-centered relationships with peers and youth leaders, to worship together, to be engaged in the gospel and to be encouraged to reach out to every school and every student. We are a "diverse" mix of Jr. High and Sr. High students from different schools and backgrounds.


This is How we Connect




Backpacking is such an amazing way to enjoy God's creation. The ability to hike and explore the rivers, creatures, forests is just one of many things of God's amazing design! This Summer, we are taking the Jr. High Guys AND the High School Students on a trip to the Buffalo River. Jr High is June 1-3 and High School is June 11-13. The cost is $20 per person, which covers all food and any supplies we need for this trip. Please let us know you are coming by filling out the form online: Jr. High Form. High School Form


Last year, we spent an entire week, knocking on doors in Centerton, to share with them the events that are coming up in the Summer, to invite them to church and have gospel centered conversations. This Summer, we are taking that week and splitting it up throughout the Summer. The first one will take place on June 15. We will meet at the church at 1pm. From there we will split up into several groups and canvass the area, this time inviting them to the concert in the park, which is June 16. Then we will gather for dinner and an evening activity of putt putt, high rise, water park, ball game or something like it! Our purpose: to share the love of Christ with those who are right next door! I hope you will join us in this mission as we proclaim the gospel of Jesus in our community. OTHER DATES ARE JULY 6 AND 27.


All 7th-12th grade students!

We want to invite you to an event on June 17th. BOLT is an escape room located in Bentonville, AR. You are given one hour to complete the task of escaping from the room you are locked in. Best of all, thanks to a parent in the student ministry, IT IS FREE! After Bolt, we will enjoy pizza at the Student Center. So to recap... Free BOLT, Free Pizza, Free Event!

If you need a ride, we will have a bus ready to leave the church at 4:15 PM. We will come back to the church after BOLT to enjoy Pizza and hang out until 8PM. You can fill out the escape room waiver by going HERE. Also, we need you to RSVP. Click the link, it will bring you to a page to reserve your spot, and also provides a place to make a note. Let us know if you will need a ride or if you will meet us at BOLT.

The real question about this event is... WILL YOU ESCAPE?


PraiseWorks is an incredible opportunity for students to gather to worship, learn about worship, and to gain skills for leading worship. Our goal is to equip students with hands-on experiences and to give them a place to discover and develop their passion and their God-given abilities. Students can choose tracks in leadership, music theory, photography, drama, song writing, voice, piano, guitar, drums and more! PraiseWorks is for 7th-12 graders. Camp takes place on the campus of Ouachita Baptist University, Arkadelphia, AR. Let us know you can come by registering at


Our Life Groups take place on Sunday mornings in the Student Center starting at 8:45am. These groups are based on the age and life stage of the students. It is a time where the students and leaders share life and share Jesus. It is a deeper study of God's word while gathering in small groups.


Students 7th-12th grade gather together on Wednesday evenings in the Student Center for our weekly Night of Worship, a time focused on worship, prayer and biblical teaching. Everything kicks off at 6pm and concludes at 7:30pm.
