Jerome Students is our 6th – 12th grade ministry at Jerome. Our goal is to create environments where students are encouraged to make wise choices, positively influence their friends, and experience personal ministry through serving others.

Our team of amazing certified and background checked adult leaders helps this vision become a reality! Jerome Students is a church experience like no other, designed specifically to help 6th – 12th graders connect with Jesus, each other and a caring adult as well as helping teenagers experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ!

Jerome Students offers two very unique experiences, Large Group and Small Group.

For our Large Group, commonly known as Midweek is comprised of playing interactive games, worship, 15-minute talks about relevant topics like dating, stress, identity, parents, friendships and more. Our hope is that the Midweek services expose you to who Jesus is and help you fall more and more in love with Him. This is a safe and non-threatening way for students to come and check out what we do before jumping in. Large Group meets weekly throughout the school year on Wednesday nights from 7:30pm-8pm at Jerome in the Large Group Space.

We also have Small Groups specifically designed for each gender for both middle school and high school. Small Groups are made of approximately 6-12 students and two caring adult leaders of the same gender. Small Groups meet weekly throughout the school year at Jerome Church in the Large Group Space on Wednesday nights from 8pm-8:30pm right after Large Group. Being involved in a Small Group is an awesome way to connect with other students and grow closer to God. Small Groups will spend time laughing, praying, learning, and serving together.  


One of Jerome Students main goals is to partner with parents.  We believe by doing so this instills a everyday faith in the life of a student.  It is because of this we equip parents with the necessary tools to bring the concepts students have learned while in our environments home so they too can speak the same encouragement to their students on a day to day basis. 

We have caring adult volunteers and student leaders who love you and will make this big church feel like family! Jerome Student Ministry is a safe place for anyone — we will welcome you if you’re just checking out this whole Jesus thing and challenge you if you have been following Him for your whole life. We hope to see you soon!
