There are 35,000+ students within a 5-mile radius of Northwood Church. These students are impacting the world in significant ways. Never in the history of the world has a more creative, gifted, and passionate generation existed.
At Northwood we believe every generation has the responsibility to reach the next generation! Our approach to student ministry is simple: Adults equipping students to live and love like Jesus.
We want to inspire students to enjoy God! Jesus invited his disciples to come and experience the fullness of what life has to offer. Life is best lived in relationship with God and with others.
We want to equip students to live as family. Family can be complicated. For followers of Jesus ‘family’ is not only by birth or adoption but also by our relationship with our Heavenly Father. In a sense, Jesus redefines family. Our family is diverse. We speak different languages, enjoy different things, and see the world differently. When we embrace family we live and love like Jesus.
We want to mobilize students to impact culture. Jesus’ impact on culture didn’t happen through social media or writing a book. Jesus impacted culture by deeply investing in 12 people, His disciples. He taught them how to have a relationship with God, and to take part in His restorative work in the world. God also calls us to make disciples! We do so in the same way, by investing in people and teaching them to take an active part in God’s restorative work.
