Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.           (1 Timothy 4:12)

The student ministry at RiverValley Church exists to draw teenagers into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and to deepen their understanding of God's Word as they develop into disciples of Him. We want to introduce students to Jesus in such a way that they can't help but want to devote their life to following Him. We don't want students to simply know about Jesus; we want students to follow Jesus (Matthew 4:19).

RVC | Students provides an environment for students to engage in meaningful worship, explore the Word of God, and experience Christian fellowship with teenagers who love the Lord Jesus Christ.

RVC | Students offers both Sunday morning and Wednesday night options for students looking to get involved in this ministry:

Sunday Mornings - High School Equip & Middle School Equip

For information about High School Equip & Middle School Equip see the RVC | Students section on the 'What to Expect' page.

Wednesday Nights - Summit Youth Group 

A typical night at youth group involves a time for games and activities, a Bible lesson, small group discussions, and worship led by our worship director, Danny Linse, and our student worship team.

The Wednesday night schedule is:

  • Summit Middle School Youth Group: 5:30p - 7:10p @ RiverValley Church
  • Summit High School Youth Group: 6:50p - 8:30p @ RiverValley Church

Also, throughout the year Summit students have opportunities to travel to various conferences, retreats, and events such as sporting events, water/theme parks, and hiking trips. These trips are available for all students to attend, and are great opportunities for fellowship outside of a church setting – to be the Church outside of the church.
