  • Implement systems, processes, and policies to allow the ministry to run effectively, ensure safety, and grow.
  • Create and execute a strategy to reach: 1. Students in the church that are not engaged, 2. Students in the community and area schools.
  • Partner with and minister to parents so they are well-informed, supported, and equipped to disciple at home.
