The Grove Student Ministries

What We Believe

Theology. Liturgy. Biography.

The Grove is a youth ministry that exists to be a biblical community, bringing glory to God by making disciples of Jesus Christ through gospel-centered teaching (theology), gospel-centered worship (liturgy), and gospel-centered service (biography).

We at the Grove understand that each of us, whether Christians or not, are worshippers. We all give our affections, time, and devotion to something or someone. Here at the Grove it is our desire to see students come to know, love, and worship Jesus Christ.

By definition, a grove is a small group of trees growing close together. At the Grove we recognize that we are a close knit family that gathers together to worship our Savior. We take Hebrews 10:24-25 seriously when it says: “Let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.”

At the Grove, we desire to know Jesus more deeply, personally, and intimately, and to make Him known in our city and to the ends of the earth.
