Student Ministry

Energizing Middle and High School Students on their Spiritual Journey

Welcome to Student Night

Our youth group in Lee’s Summit exists to see students far from God become passionate Christians who make a difference in the world. Although the format of our Student Night is slightly different each week, we always focus on three primary components: experiencing through corporate worship, equipping through biblical teaching, and engaging in small groups. Why? Because when you’re here, we want you to deepen your relationship with Jesus while fostering connections with other like-minded believers.

“Our Student Ministry exists to see students who are far from God become passionate Christians who make a difference in the world.”


Wednesdays | 6:30 to 8:30 P.M.

What to Expect from Our Student Ministry

There’s a lot to look forward to when you attend Student Night! Check out what a typical month looks like for our Student Ministry.

First Wednesday: Our entire church participates in a monthly prayer night, and students will have their own personalized worship experience. Once the opening part of the prayer service is complete, students will break out into their regular small groups.

Second and Fourth Wednesdays: Student Night will begin with worship as a large group, followed by age-specific breakouts for middle and high school, and end with small group time.

Third Wednesdays: Students will worship together and stay together for a large group message. Regular small group time will follow.

Student Discipleship Groups

We also offer Sunday morning discipleship group opportunities for students who are looking to dive deeper into their faith. We have classes for middle and high school students. Both classes happen during the 11:00 A.M. service each Sunday.

Get Baptized at Our Church in Lee’s Summit

Have you recently committed your life to Christ? Are you ready to take your spiritual next step and get baptized? We believe in baptism by immersion because that’s how Jesus was baptized. We’d love to talk to you more and help you announce your faith in front of family, friends, and your church community. You can choose to be baptized on Sunday morning, on Wednesday evening, or at one of our special baptism events.

Make a Difference in Our Student Ministry and Beyond

God has given us all unique gifts to serve others and shine His light. At Journey Church International, we have multiple ways students can use their talents to share Jesus both inside and outside our church walls. From joining our Student Worship Team or living out the Gospel through local and global outreach projects, we offer all kinds of opportunities for students to make a difference as a follower of Christ.
