Brookwood Student Ministry exists to show teenagers the love of God, true family, and how to reach the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. At the end of the day, our mission is to send students out ready for the road ahead.
We believe that relationships within The Word are important and our entire Sunday mornings revolve around that. Student Small Groups help achieve that purpose: help point students back to their relationship with God, speak the truth to them in love, and guide them in His Word (the most everlasting gift we have – see 1 Peter 1:45-25). We regularly break out into small groups so that students can safely process what God is teaching them. We also make prayer a priority, taking time each week to get to know the needs and concerns of each student so that we can lift them up to God. Sunday morning Small Groups also help students in their relationships with each other, providing fresh donuts, an atmosphere of fun, and quality leaders each week! We hope to see you there!
Come to Brookwood Student Worship Services and experience community like you've never felt it before. Expect positive relationships, joy together, biblical teaching, and great leaders (who care about students). Most of all, we want God to be glorified in all that we say and do. We have a great time together! Students, in addition to intentional activities, will also have a chance to join a small group on Wednesday nights (alongside their peers and led by hand-picked adult volunteers). Our Student Minister, Daniel, will always preach a biblical lesson and seek to pour into students. We hope to see you on a Wednesday night!
Get together for a splash with us! Middle schoolers from 10:00am-12:00pm and high schoolers from 1:00-3:00pm. Bring a 2-liter drink or an individually wrapped snack! Pizza on us. This will be on August 8 at the Kinder's residence (Long Lake subdivision). We would love to hang out with students on this day! Click on the graphic to sign-up!
I was born and raised in East Texas, growing up in church from a young age. We were at church every time there was an open door! Through this all, I fell into disobedience and hypocrisy; it is possible to be a church-attender but not a follower of God.
Students need people who will show them how to follow God. They need encouragement from someone that cares. Christ’s love compels me (2 Corinthians 5:14-15) to help young people in this journey of faith. At Brookwood Student Ministry, we help mend broken relationships, reach out to the least of these, encourage spiritual growth, build events that draw students to God, disciple students in both small and large group settings, and raise up leaders who can do the same. Our goal is to encourage students to be the men and women God called them to be (Ephesians 4:14-16). We believe we can do this, all while having joy, living life, and connecting with students where they’re at!
My wife, Summer, and I met in Memphis Tennessee in 2015 - both doing youth ministry at the time. We were married in 2016. She is my best friend and the best partner anyone could ask for. Our son, Jacob, was born in 2018 and we hope and pray he uses his relationship with God one day to be a beacon of light to others who are struggling. We enjoy a good laugh, eatin’ some Cajun food, and spending quality time with others. Hope to see you around!
Now is the time to use your gifts. God made you in a special, unique way and Brookwood Student Ministries wants to help students use and explore their gifts. Join us for monthly meetings (even via Zoom) and special challenges particular to SMLT (students, as we lead and serve in our student ministry). Deadline for applications and references is September 1. Existing SMLT members need to only fill out the application, not the references.
