High School Ministry

High school is one of the most intentional mission fields you'll ever have, which is why we're all about sending transformed students to influence their world for Christ. We believe you can have impact now, not when you get older, but now. We aim to grow mature followers of Jesus who love His Word and seek living in community. You can read more about how we serve high schoolers below, but if you'd like to connect with us, email Isaac Cabrera, Associate Minister to High School!

Sunday School

Sunday School is the easiest way for you to get involved in high school ministry at Shades. It's how you can get to know and begin to live life with your peers. High School students will meet on the 6th floor Dobbins Buildling at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30a.m. 

For more information on Sunday School, contact Mindy Barton, Student Ministry Assistant.


If you're interested in diving in deeper relationship with God and others, DGroups is the perfect place for you. It's how we connect with others on an intentional level. You'll group up with five to seven students in your same grade and of your same gender for weekly time focused in the Bible. You'll be led by someone in a life stage ahead of you, and it's a great way to begin forming the foundation of discipleship in your life. If you would like more information about DGroups, please contact Kelly McCollum.

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday night gatherings at Shades are a great midweek time to hang out with your friends, but it's also a way to have your eyes fixed toward Jesus no matter what your week is like. 

Join us in the Student Building every Wednesday from 6-7:30 PM!  We will have $5 pizza starting at 5:30PM. Come early to hangout, play Xbox One, Pop-Shot Basketball, Air Hockey and more! See our Fall Schedule for what's coming this fall!
