The Bear Valley Church Student Ministry exists to reach and grow students into followers of Jesus Christ. We’re excited about young people.

We believe students of all ages have the potential to grow in their understanding and experience of life in Jesus, and that they have the capacity to make a radical difference in our world today. We don’t just see our students as a part of the church of tomorrow, but an integral part of the church of today.

Our Vision for Students

We come together on Sundays and during the week to connect with God and with each other. We love to have fun, enjoy Colorado’s beautiful nature together, and connect with each other as we do life together.

We challenge the students to dig deeper into their faith and discover for themselves who Jesus is. We provide all sorts of opportunities to help students grow through Bible studies, small groups, retreats, camps, etc.

We invite students to participate in what Jesus is doing in this world. We love to serve and help in local ministries. We assist in various camps in the summer, and we go overseas to participate in missions trips where we get chances to experience other cultures, connect with young people from other countries and get opportunities to share our faith and serve other people in practical ways.

We have a wonderful and dedicated group of volunteer leaders who invest themselves in the lives of all the students. We believe that significant and meaningful relationships with leaders are great ways to show the students that Jesus loves and cares for them.

Sr High Fall Retreat – October 13-15th!!!

Mark it down on your calendar because we will be having our Senior High Fall Retreat the weekend of October 13-15th. It is a great, great, great time away that we get to spend and grow together. It continues to be one of the student's favorite events and I am excited about this year and the theme being FULL. We will walk through 1 Peter and discuss the empty way of life vs the Full way of life found in Christ and what that looks like. We will also have heaps of fun in the mountain air up at the YoungLife Camp Crooked Creek in Fraiser Co.

Cost: $160 if you sign up before September 3rd. $180 if you sign up after.

Weekly Activities

On Sundays, all grade levels meet at 9:30 AM in a single assembly for worship led by students and leaders from the student ministry with one central message.

On weekdays students meet together for games and activities (outdoors as weather permits) that help students engage with each other and Jesus in a fun way. We also break the students into small groups divided by gender and age. An adult volunteer mentor committed to the group for the full school year leads a Bible study from a curriculum, usually exploring and enforcing the central themes from Sunday’s message where our goal is for the students to have a chance to ask questions, express their faith, encourage and challenge each other and grow in their experience of hope and life in Jesus.

All students are very welcome to participate in any of our activities!

Please feel free to contact Student Pastor Drew Cole at any time with questions, comments, or concerns that you have about the student ministries.
