Alive is a ministry designed for 6th-12th graders in the Jacksonville/Orange Park area. We have a very simple philosophy at Alive. Our goal is leading students to real life change through Jesus Christ from the inside out. To do this we have a simple strategy of equipping parents and empowering volunteer leaders (Small Group Leaders) to influence the lives of the next generation.
Alive has an environment that promotes safety, fun, friendship, and Jesus. We believe wholeheartedly that when you combine the influence of the church with the love of the family, we can make the greatest impact on the lives and faith of students.

Alive is for any 6th-12th grade student in the Jacksonville/Orange Park area. Within the Alive Ministry, we have two subdivisions; Middle School and High School. Half of the time all students will be together, and then the other half they will be separate.
Our Small Group Leaders are the heroes of Alive. They are all background checked, specially trained, and love your students. Our Small Group Leaders lead grade and gender specific small groups and invest heavily into the lives of the students they are entrusted with.
Safety is one of our biggest values at Alive. Because of this, the only adults that are allowed to attend are Alive Student Ministry volunteers with approved background checks. If you are interested in volunteering in the Alive Ministry, simply let us know.
Absolutely! This is highly encouraged by our leadership. We believe that Alive is special. Because it is so special, we want to share it with as many people as we can!
Alive is free for all students so no money is needed. With that being said, we do have a snack shack that they can purchase items from every week. We will also do some special events that have a registration fee, but don't worry, we will always communicate those events well in advance.
Renew is an exciting weekend event where we mix our normal Alive schedule with food, some cool swag, games, and other fun surprises we can't wait to tell you about!
How can students continue to grow as Christians in the aftermath of these mountaintop experiences?
Come enjoy a fun movie night with us. There will be free popcorn, our normal snack shack (extra cost) and of course, some fun!
