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.

Middle School Winter Retreat – Feb. 23-25!

Every February we take our Middle School students up to Estes Park, Co at the YMCA of the Rockies for a Winter Retreat that offers students the opportunity to have fun and grow in who they are in Jesus through worship, teaching and small groups.

We join with several other youth groups in the Denver Metro Area and usually have around 300-400 Middle School students in total at this retreat. It is a great time for students to connect with friends in our youth group, but also friends who may be in other youth groups as well.

The retreat occurs at the YMCA of the Rockies, which means we get to use some of their great facilities with a pool, games, gym, and more. We also do a Dodgeball tournament, inflatables, and many other things that most Middle School students enjoy.

It is also intentional time away from our set routines that allows us to engage the things of Jesus as we talk and discuss how who He is impacts who we are and what we do.

The Retreat will be from Friday February 23rd to Sunday February 25th.
Cost: $170

We will meet at BVC @ 4pm on Friday and be back to BVC around 12:30/1pm on Sunday.

When you sign up for the Middle School Winter Retreat you can select between paying a deposit, the full amount, using the Student's Youth Account or paying later. 

Weekly Activities

On Sundays, Middle School meets at 9:30 AM and High School at 11 AM 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.
