About Student Ministry

There is no doubt that adolescent years are a crazy roller coaster, encompassing 7 (or more!) years of emotional ups and downs, challenges, incredible growth opportunities and some hurdles along the way. Our students today, face more pressure than perhaps ever before and are frequently left asking “who am I?” and “what do I believe?” PEPC Student Ministries staff and volunteers walk this journey with the students and their families by engaging them in fun and exciting ministry opportunities and providing biblically accurate and relevant teaching. We offer opportunities to plug in, serve the community and the world, and to grow alongside other youth in the Parker area. We are an extension of our “big church” and incorporate the same vision, creating a vital connection between Children’s Ministry and Adult Ministry. We recognize and value the importance of intentional partnership with parents and other key ministry partnerships in the community.

Middle School Youth Group:

Our After School Program is on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:30pm, in the Student Center @ PEPC during the school year.
PEPC Student Ministries desires to provide a safe place for Middle School Students to hang out with friends, join a small group, or do homework right right after school. Pick-up from Fika near Cimarron and Sierra is currently available and we provide a snack each week.

WHAT WOULD I BE DOING?

THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION! OFTEN TIMES, ADULTS ARE OVERWHELMED WITH THE THOUGHT OF BEING AROUND MIDDLE OR HIGH SCHOOLERS FOR THREE HOURS. WE TOTALLY GET THAT! HERE’S THE DEAL THOUGH; WE HAVE SPECIFIC ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES THAT WE ASK YOU TO LIVE INTO THAT MAKE IT SEEM LIKE CAKE. BY YOU OWNING THESE VARIOUS ROLES THROUGHOUT THE EVENING, IT HELPS THE NIGHT FLOW WELL, AND DIVIDES THE RESPONSIBILITIES TO MAKE CONNECTING WITH STUDENTS VERY ORGANIC AND SIMPLE! BELOW IS A LIST OF OUR ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES (KEEP IN MIND WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN TO NEW IDEAS OR ROLES THAT YOU FEEL LIKE YOU COULD BRING TO THE TABLE):

Snack Shack

These leaders will be responsible for selling candy during youth group. They also are responsible for making sure to grab the cash register before youth group, and return the cash register after youth group. They will also keep students out of the Student Center Kitchen AT ALL TIMES!

Wassup! Team

These leaders will be at the door while students arrive to greet, guide, and direct them to our check in team.  Also, in many ways, they are the face of PEPC Student Ministries to new students who may be attending for the first time! Often times, a simple “Wassup!” can make a kid feel welcomed and want to return again!

Band Wagoneer’s

These leaders will be responsible for everything BAND. They are responsible for helping with set-up as well as break down of the stage each and every night. Also, often times these leaders will be called upon to own various tasks in the sound booth (cue music, message slides, etc.).

Gamers

These leaders will help setup and take down both the big, as well as the upfront games.  They may also be asked to run a game on their own!

PEPC Homeland Security

These leaders will make sure that students are not going places they shouldn’t be. Such as up and down hallways, going up and down the stairs, or going around the outside of the Church building throughout the night.  During the message time they will need to be sitting near the exit to ensure that kids are not sneaking out.

Wax on Wax off!

These leaders will be in charge of cleaning up the Student Center, Student Center Lobby, and Student Center Kitchen after students have been released and picked up.

Highway Patrol

These leaders will be responsible for getting all the students moving in the directions they need to be when we move from one room to another.  For example, when we move from the Student Center Lobby to the Student Center, they will rally the students and encourage them to get where they need to be. They will also help the staff get the students quiet and ready to listen to whoever is giving directions.

Hide Yo Kids

These leaders are designated to help staff members in case of emergencies. It is preferred, but not required, that these leaders are CPR certified (we can pay for your training if interested).

Leadership is from 5:15-8:15 every Wednesday night for MS and 5:45-8:15pm every Sunday night for HS.  Plan on being here during that time.
