Student Ministries

Who We Are

Student Ministries’ mission is to help students in the 6th through 12th grades become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ…who GO to the lost with the message of Christ, GROW in their faith through a pursuit of Christ, and SHOW compassion to the poor with the love of Christ.

There are two main ways to be involved in Student Ministries here at River Oaks; serving and small groups. We want to give our students the chance to join a volunteer team to help serve in various ways on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. We also have separate meeting times for our middle and high school students. These nights include food, games, worship, a short challenge, and small groups that are separated by age and gender.

High School Ministry


Our 9th-12th grade students meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8pm in the Student Wing. These nights include hanging out, food, games, worship, a short challenge and small groups. Bring a friend and hope to see you there!

Middle School Ministry


Our 6th-8th grade students meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8pm. These nights include large group games, a quick large group challenge, and time in small groups. These nights are a great opportunity to connect with friends and grow closer to Jesus.
