At Missio Dei Church we believe we have an important role in helping students develop and grow into Christ-loving and faith-proclaiming adults.

Our Students' Ministry exists to encourage students to grow in a godly character, biblical competence, and missional courage in their families, churches, campuses, and cities, both now as students and in the future as adults. We commit to doing that by engaging students in our city with the gospel through discipleship and community.
