We exist to help lead a generation of students into a personal growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Being a teenager can be a lot of fun, but at the same time it has its challenges. Discovering your true identity, fitting in, and learning to make wise decisions are just a few of the issues that many teenagers are facing today.

That’s why at GFN Student Ministries we’re dedicated to providing a place for students (7th -12th grade) to connect with God, other students, a group of dedicated adults leaders who are committed to seeing students grow closer to Christ and partnering with parents.

On top of all that, we LOVE to have FUN! Here are some of the BIGGER things that we really look forward to each year:

  • MidWeek Life Groups

  • Labor Day Beach Retreat

  • SC District NYI Events (in conjunction with other South Carolina Nazarene District churches across our state)

  • Summer Youth Camp

  • Student Leadership Conference

  • Summer Mission trips



THE GATHERING: Every Wednesday night @ 6:30PM - 8:30PM

This is our mid-week worship gathering. It is an exciting time of fellowship, FUN, worship, and discipleship! If your student joins us for ‘The Gathering’ they can expect to have a great time full of laughing and connecting with others who are going through a similar journey of life. We meet in the Student Center from 6:30PM – 8:30PM. It is our desire that every student who walks through our doors would feel welcomed and at home! If you are new and considering connecting to GFN Student Ministries, ‘The Gathering’ is a great place to start!

MIDWEEK GROUPS: Every Wednesday night following our large group gathering our students will break into grade specific Small Groups to continue the conversations from The Gathering service. During this time students are able to go deeper in their relationships with one another and with Christ. This is also a great discipleship opportunity for our adult leaders to connect and engage with our students.

GFN Student Ministries is committed to creating a safe environment where our students feel comfortable to participate, as well as, invite their friends, grow in their relationship with Christ, develop other meaningful friendships, and enjoy a great time of fellowship and worship with one another.
