Student ministries

Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

We are the student ministry of Journey Church located in Bend, Oregon. We would love to meet you and get you connected! Our heart for students at our Journey Church comes out of Psalm 92:12-15.
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”
We want to see High School and Middle School students thriving in an authentic relationship with God, and connected to the local church.

Our goal is to help take students on a spiritual Journey as they follow Christ. We accomplish this by helping them Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Making a Difference. As students take these steps they will grow closer to God, have great relationships, and learn how to serve and lead in the church. We believe that students who are connected to a life-giving church and healthy relationships can follow Jesus for a lifetime, and they will use their gifts and passions to make an impact on Earth.
With Joy, Pastor Mark

We meet every Wednesday night at Journey Church from 7PM-8:30 PM

Journey has a vibrant High School ministry aimed at reaching 9th-12th graders. We have weekly services that are fun and engaging, but also challenge students on a deep spiritual level. Throughout the year we offer retreats, summer camp, small groups and more.

Our passion is to see every student we come into contact with meet Jesus! To make this happen, we work with staff who are engaged and focused on that passion. The Journey High School staff comes from all walks of life–and we think that is exactly how it should be.  We love and believe in our students because they are the future of God’s perfect plan.
