Strive provides students 6th-12th grades a place to connect, grow, and worship. 


We desire to provide a fun environment for students to connect with one another, connect with teachings, and ultimately connect with God. We want to engage students where they are and open their eyes to God’s purpose for their lives.


We desire to see students grow in their faith and identity as children of God. Strive provides weekly teachings, small groups, summer mission trips, and many other opportunities for students to step into a deeper relationship with God.


Come join us for one of our weekly student services. Our services are highlighted by live music by student bands, reading of Biblical scripture, and more.
