About Swift Creek Student Ministry
The aim of Swift Creek Students is to treasure Jesus and see Him as far better than everything else this world has to offer (Phil 3:8). From 6th-12th grade, students go through one of the most significant periods of transformation in their life. During these years, we long to see students be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ in every way through the power of the gospel (2 Cor. 3:18), and for them to see the Name of Jesus magnified and proclaimed to their family, friends, school, community, and to the ends of the earth (Phil. 1:20-21; 1 Pet 2:9). Students are being transformed by:
- Connecting with God through Christ-centered worship & discipleship (Phil. 3:8, 2 Tim. 2:2)
- Connecting with other students through Christ-centered relationships (Ephesians 4:15-16).
- Connecting students and others with God through obeying our Christ-centered mission (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 10:45)
We are serious about partnering alongside parents to see this accomplished. Our goal is to equip parents to be the primary disciple-maker of their home, with the ultimate aim that their teenager will grow up into adulthood loving and serving Christ with their whole heart, mind, soul, and strength (Eph. 6:4, Dt. 6:4-9, Eph. 4:13).

Up to date Medical Release required (expires after 1 year)
(Completed 6th-12th Grade) This trip is a combination of both a missions experience and a worship-filled camp experience. Morning and Evening we will have Christ-centered worship, with small groups throughout the week. During the afternoon, we will be going out into the community and putting on a kids camp for several hours as a means of sharing the gospel. Students will be both filled in Christ and pour themselves out for Christ. I hope and pray you will consider coming to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina this summer for our mission camp.
