ResLife Youth


6th -12th Grade

What is Reslife Youth?

Reslife Youth is the student ministry of Reslife Church with a mission to see students brought into the family of God and to walk with them on a journey of discipleship. Our desire is for every student to encounter God in a personal and very real way, to create opportunities for students to engage with each other, with leaders, and with the community, and to equip students to do the work of the ministry.
During Sunday services, middle schoolers (6th-8th Grade) and high schoolers (6th-12th Grade) meet for an engaging, interactive service. On Wednesday nights, all of our Students (6th-12th Grade) come together for a fun, encouraging service in the Ground Floor.

June 24 – 27, 2021 | Open to Students going into 9th – 12th grade and graduating seniors.

Our High school camping trip is about equipping students to know and follow Jesus in the context of real life. At this four-day trip, hosted by a local campground, students will learn what it means to live in healthy relationships with other believers and follow Jesus daily, through worship, teaching, and activities. Transportation, tents, sleeping arrangement, and meals will be supplied. Students that need to socially distance themselves may bring their own tent. A packing list and detailed information for a rustic camping experience will be sent out to students who apply.

Space is limited. Once the maximum number of applicants is reached, all other student applicants will be placed on a waiting list.
