What do I need to know?

Parents, we want to thank you for allowing Elevate Student Ministries to invest in your high school student!  We don’t take this responsibility lightly.  In fact, we consider it a top priority to build a partnership with parents.  Our hope is for our ELEVATE and Parent partnership to be delivering two consistent messages: 

1.  A clear message of Jesus,
2.  A clear spiritual growth process.

Our spiritual growth process is simple: EXPOSE a student to a relationship with Jesus, EQUIP a student to follow Jesus, and EXPERIENCE a life serving Jesus.

We believe that the students who take part in the 3 “E’s” weekly will be spiritually ELEVATED and will be able to spiritually ELEVATE others.  We hope that our 3 “E” process of spiritual growth will be something that the students will also apply to their daily lives.
