Aside from our Youth Director, Josh Pelkey, there are countless adult volunteers who are committed to investing in the kids each week, and we are actively seeking more. Our mission is to provide the students with opportunities to regularly celebrate God through amazing worship, fellowship and prayer; to actively connect with other students and adults who share a love for the Lord and will help them grow in their faith and stay on the right path; and to contribute to the work that God is doing in this world by serving on a ministry team and offering opportunities to serve beyond the walls of Four Mile. We hope to equip and empower the students to live out their faith by providing Biblical truth and helping them discover how to apply this truth to their everyday lives, as well as helping them to build a vibrant and growing personal relationship with God.
What can I expect from Four Mile Student Ministries?
The primary purpose of Student Ministry at Four Mile is to create an environment for students in grades 7-12 to engage in Christ in a way that is real, powerful and life-changing. Because our Student Ministry is uniquely designed to relate to teenagers, this ministry helps youth develop an intimate and meaningful relationship with Christ in a way that has amazing impact.
The Student Ministry Director and leadership team take every measure to provide a safe and family-oriented approach to engaging youth in community, worship and fellowship so that parents can rest easy while their teen learns and grows with Christ. The curriculum has a special focus on learning God’s word to help prepare youth for the joys and challenges of the world around them. This also equips them to be an ambassador for Christ within their generation, family, community and world.

Connect (Sundays 9:15am - 10:10am, Grades: 7-10th)
On Sunday mornings, we have a more intimate smaller group setting for more in-depth biblical discussions. Using The Gospel Project curriculum, this time gives students an opportunity to be part of a more interactive study on God’s word and further relate the Word to their everyday lives. You can find us downstairs in the Dining Hall.
Connect (Sundays 9:15am - 10:10am, Grades 11-12th)
We've created an intimate setting designed especially for students in 11-12th grade to help prepare them to go out into the world. Each Sunday morning, students meet for breakfast, bible study and fellowship.
Four Mile Student Ministry serves the community with a variety of projects that help them learn about the importance of service and the impact they can have on the world around them. Students participate in regularly scheduled seasonal service projects for those in need in the nearby community. They also have the opportunity to participate in a larger mission trip each year.
