Faith Students exists to create an atmosphere, place, and moments where students want to gather together, authentically connect and serve others willingly. We want every student to come to love God, walk with Christ and listen to the Holy Spirit.

wednesday night live | 6:30 - 8:30 pm @ East

During the school year, Wednesday Night Live is a ministry for 7-12th grade students to gather together for worship, fellowship and connection. We worship God with singing, small groups, games and food. We want to be a family of students and adults who meet together, not because we have to, but because we want to. If this resonates with you, then you have to come! We meet at the East Building. Wednesday Nights Sept-May 6:30-8:30

sunday morning | 10:45 - 11:30 am @ east building

During the school year, we read God's word with hopes of sharing it with others.  We will meet every Sunday morning in the South Hall of the East Building during the second service message.  All students 7th-12th grade are welcome to come.  Occasionally we eat donuts.

  • SCOTT OWENS - PASTOR OF student ministries and leadership development

    Scott came to Faith Church in November of 2016. He got called into ministry from a desire to have authentic, intentional conversations with students and parents about Christ. He wants nothing more then to see people that don't know Jesus  and for those that know Him to be IN AWE of Him everyday. 

    Scott and his wife, Carrie, have six kids (Isabelle, Elijah, Mathias, Clara, Samuel and Josiah) and most of their energy goes into putting their faith into action at home and modeling that to everyone that God brings into their path. He believes in being faith-rooted at home, authentic in community and resourced passionately from the church. He loves soccer, Stonehouse Coffee, the book of John, MNUFC, biographies, Moleskin notebooks, the book of Romans, Piggy Blues, acronyms, the book of Ecclesiastes, mexican food and students that don't play practical jokes on his car (affectionately known as the "jellybean").
