At ROCC Youth, students experience Gospel-centered teaching and authentic worship.
ROCC Youth Vision Statement:
Our student ministry is dedicated to creating authentic environments for students to connect with God in a powerful way to be fully equipped to step into life beyond our ministry.
We fulfill this by helping "pack the bags" of our students to better send them off into life beyond our ministry!
On Sunday afternoon, from 4-6pm, students experience Gospel-centered teaching and authentic worship. There is also an allotted time for students to break into small groups, be prayed for, and “do life” with their peers and small group leaders. We also offer Sunday school for both middle and high school students during the 9:15 am service on Sunday mornings. Students can take their faith to the next level by joining a d:Group (discipleship group). d:Groups meet throughout the week during the school year and cover various books of the Bible or topical studies.
Alongside supports both parents and youth ministry leaders and volunteers to love teenagers well.

Teenagers want to be chased, and Alongside brings scripture to life and helps parents and those in youth ministry practically connect the life of Jesus to the lives of their adolescent children and friends.
