Teen's Ministry

If you are in 7th – 12th grade, we invite you to be part of the Teen Group of
RiverWalk Church of Christ.

Riverwalk Student Ministry is a ministry built around the purpose of intentionally discipling teenagers. While we understand nothing can replace relational discipleship,

we believe that our corporate activity structure lends itself to supplementing that discipleship. It accomplishes this by focusing on what we believe are the three primary aspects of discipleship: Narrative – Implementing and reinforcing a teaching which stresses the life story Jesus lived and has planned for us; Practice – The application of that narrative; Community – Practicing intentional and

Christian relationships with each other.

Our objective is to help produce and support teenagers in facilitating a fully devoted discipleship of Jesus. As Kendra Creasy Dean writes, “their lives will portray God as loving, powerful, and active in the world; they [will] talk about their church communities as spiritually and relationally significant. They [will] sense a divinely appointed purpose in their lives, and they [will] bear witness to a hopeful future.
