Get out of the way

The Student Impact staff senses that God is doing a new thing in the lives of teenagers—one that requires staff and volunteers to get out of the way. “At Sandblast, more than 50 students accepted Christ for the first time,” says Lauren Zaworski, youth pastor at Student Impact. “It wasn’t just about having the best worship or teaching, though that was excellent. In addition to that, we saw the importance of creating spaces for students to experience God, and then we let Him do the rest.”

This fall, they want to continue the momentum by taking the entire high school ministry on an Alpha journey, which will include interactive talks, worship, and conversations during services. Student Impact also wants to welcome students into House Groups and small groups where they can ask their toughest questions. “A faith that is questioned and tested is one that can be relied on,” continues Lauren. “I’m praying that students come to experience the true, transforming love of God.”

What are House Groups?

House Groups are medium-sized communities that gather in homes across the suburbs. Students go to House Groups after the 11:15 a.m. Student Impact service. During these gatherings, they receive lunch and build community through fun activities then meet for small groups. House Groups launch September 8.

Want to get involved?

Pray for the launch of Student Impact, that God will meet students through worship, teaching, and community. If you’re interested in serving as a leader and creating space for students to experience God’s love, contact Lauren!
