Our students, as well as all Christians, are called to Diverge to be different from the pattern of this world or the standard set by today’s culture.

It is the goal of this ministry help students from 6th – 12th grade engage this culture with the courage to deny themselves with the compassion of Jesus Christ to serving others with the same compassion.  Seeing students get to know Christ on a personal level and walking with them to own their faith is the passion of what we do.

“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

— Hebrews 10:22-25

Youth Sunday School

meets Sunday mornings at 9:30.  This is a time of Bible Study where we open up the truths of Scripture as they apply directly to the student’s lives. We gauge the needs of our students and teach accordingly through groups of either age or gender based.


meets Wednesday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 for a time of youth worship.  Worship style is contemporary followed by relevant messages meant to “Ignite” a flame within each student and challenging them to diverge.

The Walk

meets Sunday nights from 5:00-5:45 for Middle School and 6:10-7:00 for High School.  Students will put into play what they learn through other ministry times. There will be less teaching and more students working through their faith by sharing and walking together with one another.

New Youth Space

On September 8th, DIVERGE youth had a night of celebration for answered prayers. We opened the doors to our first EVER youth space!!! Beyond grateful to all who have prayed before us and all who had a hand in making this happen, Tommy Cox reminded us while addressing the youth this night that God has blessed us beyond what we asked for! Please feel free to come and see this amazing space.
