Refuge student ministry

Our desire is to see every student encounter christ.

Reach:  To reach students with the message of Christ.

Raise:  To raise students in their walk with Christ.

Release:  To release students to make an impact for Christ.

We do this through worship, Bible study and serving our community and beyond.  It would be a joy to have you join us!  
Open to all students grades 6th - 12th.

The Jonathan Initiative Mentorship Program

We are looking for Christ-like adults with servant hearts to disciple the students in the youth group.  In these troubling times it takes all of us working together to see students come to know Christ and spend their lives following Him.  

Please contact Ashley at (843) 662-9451 if the Lord is leading you to serve in this way.  Each mentor must go through training and be Ministry Safe trained and background checked to serve.

Student Bible Studies

Sunday Morning Study

We are using the Answers in Genesis Curriculum.  This curriculum helps students develop a hunger for the Word of God and in doing so develop a hunger for the Lord.  They will participate in Scripture memorization and learn doctrine/theology.

Current Wednesday Night Study

We have two choices in life - we'll either feed the best side of ourselves or the worst side.  God wants the very best for us in life and in our walk with Him, but we must choose to walk with Him for He is our very best.

Upcoming Wednesday Night Study

No one would go camping without the essential gear needed for a successful stay in the woods.  We as Christians shouldn't walk through life without the essentials we need for our faith journey.  In this study we'll walk students through the fundamentals of their faith.
