Youth Ministry


For students in 6-12th grades, our youth ministry is dedicated to creating an authentic environment for you to connect with God in a real and powerful way. From the music to the crazy games to special events, to the mission trips, everything we do is about creating disciple makers of Jesus who create disciples of Jesus.


J.A.M. (6-8th Grades)

J.A.M. stands for Jesus and Me. Come on Wednesday nights and take a breath from the craziness of life and meet people who really care about you. Middle school youth group meets on Wednesday nights during the school year. You will be encouraged and energized through Biblical teaching, worship, crazy games and connection to other students. Students not attending Midland Free are encouraged and welcome to come. All the details for JAM are on our web page.

Mission Trips

Jesus called us to reach out to people from every nation – and we take this charge seriously. We encourage students in 6-12th grade to grow in their faith with Jesus Christ through hands-on experiences, sharing their faith, and building relationships with their peers and the people they are serving. Watch for the December mission trip reveal.


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.
