Love God. Disciple Students. Equip Parents.

Select your local church to see what's happening at Journey Students.

Journey Students is a place for your child to belong...

Our mission is to partner with your family to help your children love God more today than they did yesterday, be discipled in the love and truth of Jesus, and to trust Jesus with their today, tomorrow, and eternity.

At Journey Students, we are committed to this happening in a fun and safe environment that your child will want to return to every week.

Life can be busy and difficult, and we believe that no one should do life alone, including middle and high school students. We are passionate about walking alongside your family and believe that everyone needs a safe place to belong where they can discover more about the hope that Jesus offers.

RELENTLESS Package-08.png

Join us this year for our 6th annual Fall Retreat at Lake Williamson.

The Christian life is often challenging and costly. If we are to run the Christian race with endurance we must condition ourselves like an athlete to endure hardship and trials. Christ loved us Relentlessly and in turn has called us to a life of Relentless love and sacrifice. Students will see Jesus as a relentless savior and king, and will learn to follow him in a relentless way. The typical black light dodgeball, crazy group games, AMAZING camp food ;), bonfires, basketball, nine-square-in-the-air, volleyball, fishing, escape room, and high ropes courses will be there. So get ready to have the time of your life... or at least the time of your fall season with Journey Students November 9th-11th. We hope you can make it.



Tower Grove Students meet on Sunday nights, 6:30-8 p.m. in Reber Space at The Journey Tower Grove.
