Student Ministry at Foothills Christian Church


Vital Student Ministry is our middle school and high school ministry at Foothills Christian Church. The word “vital” is defined as “necessary to the continuance of life.” We tend to think of the obvious; water, food, oxygen, etc. These necessities apply to life on Earth, but what about afterward? When our time on Earth has come, there is only ONE thing necessary to the continuance of life, and that’s Jesus. Accepting Jesus as our Savior is vital, and that’s what our main focus is with Vital Student Ministry.

In John 14:6, Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Vital Student Ministry focuses on those 3 things; the way, the truth, and the life. We encourage the students to:

  • Live the way Jesus calls us to by loving others in our everyday lives.
  • Live in the Truth of God’s Word, accepting Jesus as our Savior.
  • Live a life full of fellowship and accountability, growing with believers so their faith remains strong.
