Apex Student Ministry strives to help equip students for a lifelong walk with Christ. Paul tells us to press on toward the goal. We believe that it is essential to equip students to grow in their relationship with Christ, growing even closer to Him as they walk through this life. The Apex is the highest point of a mountain that every climber strives to reach. Similarly, in our walk with Christ, we should be moving upward, striving to reach the prize that we have been heavenly called toward.
Each summer we get away for a week to spend time with God and our whole group. Camp is one of the most important events we go to each year. It helps the group to accelerate their friendships with each other and God. The camp we attend varies from year to year. This year we are going to Centrifuge Camp at Panama City Beach in Florida!
During the summer we love to get together and hang out each Thursday. In the past we have gone to Schlitterbahn in Galveston, laser tag, indoor rock climbing, bowling, miniature golfing, Stewart Beach, retreats and much more. Summers around here provide a great opportunity to hang out and have fun. It’s a great time to bring friends and introduce them to Apex Student Ministry. Below is a flyer with more info about this year!
Stuff We Do Every week
Foothold – Wednesday 6:30-8:30
Every climber must have a good foothold in order to climb higher and avoid falling. Foothold is a time of giving our students the essentials they will need to continue to climb higher long after they leave the youth group. Foothold is our large group time including 7th – 12th graders that meets in the Peek. Basketball, dodgeball, video games, ping pong and other activities take place before and after Foothold. During Foothold we spend time in worship and in Bible Study. We encourage you to bring your friends and join us.
Base Camp Sunday 9:45-10-45
Climbers need to make sure they have all the equipment they need to succeed and a group of climbers they can work with to reach their common goal. Basecamp is designed to help students bond with other believers with whom they can connect and hang out. During Basecamp students will also study God’s Word to discover the basics of our faith that will help them prepare for the long climb ahead. We meet in the Peek each Sunday.
Stuff We Do Yearly
Hot Hearts is the largest Youth Evangelistic Event in the Golden Triangle. The event brings nationally known worship leaders, concert artists and speakers. We join with thousands of other teens from the area for this life-impacting weekend which begins January 31st - February 1st.
We believe our students are called to serve now and not just when they are older. Putting your faith into action is important. Mission trips allow us to put our faith into action and is a high priority in the student ministry. Our mission trip varies from year to year, but usually involves backyard Bible clubs and light construction. We have traveled to Galveston, Victoria, Mexico, Alabama, Florida and other locations. Every other year high school students are provided the opportunity to participate in an international mission trip. The past five international mission trips have taken us to the country of Ecuador. This trip has had lifelong impacts on our students.
