ABOUT X-treeme (9-12th grades)

X-treeme is the high school youth ministry at Midland Evangelical Free Church.
Our Name is... "X" = Christ    "Tree" = The Cross      "Me" = me

You really won't find a more passionate love and greater reason for living in all of the universe! So, bottom line, We are about JESUS... but who are "we"?

X-treeme is group of high school students, with some very cool adult staff, in Midland, Michigan living out Jesus Christ's love and truth imperfectly, but passionately!

Our goal is to Make, Mature, and Multiply Disciple Makers of Jesus.



The "FIRST" SUNDAY of the month features a high energy, fun outreach event. These are typically held  somewhere in Midland.

On the other Sundays X-treeme Sunday Special is featured at our church building at 6-8 pm. Following XSS we all trek to someplace in Midland for food (i.e., Taco Bell, Wendy's, Culver's and McDonald's). At times we have pizza at the church for free and to hang out and connect.

All high school students are welcome. Come and check us out!

Discipleship Groups

Hey students in 7-12th grades! Are you looking for authentic relationships with your peers? Discipleship Groups (DG’s), small groups, may be what you have been seeking. Groups of up to 10 male or female students of the same grade meet weekly during the school year. Two adults who want to invest in your life lead the group. We want you to stay in the same group as you grow together in Christ from 7th grade through graduation. Students can join a DG any time, but most DG’s begin in the fall. See link to application below. Contact Jody Best at 989.631.4411, x1001 or jodybest@mefchurch.org.
