The Bridge Student Ministry

Students are just as much a part of the family and the mission as anyone else.

Want to Volunteer?

If you’d like to serve our students in any capacity, contact Patrick and Jody Bussell at They’d love to let you know more about the team, its mission, and available opportunities!

Interested volunteers may be subject to background checks, training, and other vetting to ensure the safety of our students and the competency of our leaders.

We also hope students:

  • Regularly engage with us on Sunday mornings.
  • Consider pursuing membership.
  • Take an active role in their community group.
  • Serve on one of our teams.
  • Engage in Village classes and bible studies.
  • Build relationships with other trusted adults.

Part of the Family. Part of the Mission.

Why do we have Student Ministry?

Why is student ministry important? Because students are important! Our youth group isn’t our way of trying to “keep teenagers in church.” Our teenagers ARE the church. While we encourage our 7th-12th graders to begin growing, serving, and connecting at The Village like adults do, we also know that junior high and high school can carry their own unique sets of situations, stresses, opportunities, and relationships.

Our student ministry, The Bridge, exists to help our students cross over from K-Ville into Village life as an individual member of the church. All 7th-12th grade students are invited to connect with us, regardless of whether they’re already part of The Village or what they believe about Jesus. Everyone’s welcome!
