Our student ministry volunteers are screened, trained, dedicated and passionate about raising up a generation of teenagers to love and serve the Lord. We do this because we know it's NOT about us...BECAUSE IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
We are always striving to create an environment where students (Grades6-12) feel a genuine sense of belonging with our church family and are able to experience Jesus, resolving to always follow Him as Savior and as Lord. In partnership with parents, it is our greatest hope to build into teens today a lifetime faith
characterized by authentic WORSHIP, biblical COMMUNITY, ministry SERVICE, and multiplying DISCIPLESHIP,
Training students at Oak Grove to...
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
SERVE OUR WORLD
and MAKE DISCIPLES

O.G. YOUTH GROUP MEETING TIMES
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. "
O.G. Youth Group offers gathering opportunities each week designed to allow students to grow spiritually and develop relationships with other teens going through similar life experiences. They will each receive prayer, support, and encouragement from loving, adult ministry workers who have a passion for investing in the lives of teenagers. These meeting times are where the rubber meets the road for our students' faith. We will regularly tackle the issues head-on that they are facing daily to see where everyday life and Scripture intersect because following Jesus changes everything!

Summer Camp for Students
Every year, we take students who have completed 6th-12th grade to summer camp - an incredible opportunity for energetic worship, games & recreation, creative Bible study, getting to know other teens from Oak Grove and many other churches around the United States. We have attended camps throughout the southeast with Lifeway's FUGE camps, Student Life camps, and most recently, at Generate Camp by YM360.

JOIN THE SQUAD!
So, you're an adult (a.k.a. "old guy" or "old lady") and think you'd like to work with our crazy, loving, and awesome group of teenagers? Well...JUMP IN AND JOIN OUR SQUAD!!
Our adult leaders are the glue that holds this ministry together. If you desire to impact the next generation of Jesus' followers and make an eternal difference for God's Kingdom, then let's do it together! Every potential youth leader must submit to an interview, criminal background check, and attend annual child protection training. You should also demonstrate a heart for students and maintain a good sense of humor - 'cause that's the way we roll in the O.G.
