MISSION

Middle School Ministry exists to build Christ-followers.  

That’s our mission.  Period!  

We want to impact the lives of students in ways that are:

  • Biblically Grounded
  • Culturally Relevant
  • Relationally Healthy
  • Missionally Engaged

So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, being rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing with gratitude.  (Colossians 2:6-7)

Refocus

Refocus is an online resource created specifically for personal spiritual formation in the lives of Middle Schoolers & their families. It is designed to include practical life skills & relevant application of biblical truth.

Refocus is a resource…it’s a journey…it’s an experience that we are creating for our Middle School families --- Refocus is intentionally designed to assist students and their families in several ways.  

Yes, it’s personal spiritual growth.  It includes intentional daily sessions designed to facilitate interaction between students and their families.  Many of the sessions can be completed in 7 minutes or less.  Some sessions include activities that go beyond 7 minutes.  Refocus is packed with personal devotional content that includes practical life skills specifically geared for Middle School students.  

Recognizing the variety of our unique learning styles, the daily sessions are communicated in ways that connect with “your particular learning style.”  It’s an online tool, but it’s designed to be printed out (if you so choose) so you can utilize its content even when you aren’t online.  

Our walk with God and our worship of God are two of life’s most priceless treasures and we want to help students in their daily journey alongside our King. Refocus will be launched from our Middle School webpage. Each week, you can expect at least 4 days worth of content for students to interact with....(Day One, Day Two, Day Three and so on).  Content will also be archived so individuals can access previous sessions and videos.  

To access this week's Refocus, click here.
For downloadable, printable PDF's in the Refocus Archive, (coming soon).

Some of the content in Refocus will be located on Rightnowmedia.org, which means you will need an account on their website. For instructions on setting up an account via the church, read below.

Rightnow Media

Right Now Media is an online streaming library with thousands of Bible Study Videos and Biblically-based content for men, women, and families, as well as great shows for the kids.  Think of it as "a Netflix for Christian Bible Study."   Maybe you are sitting at home wanting to spend some quality time in the Word as a family, but not sure where to start.  Rightnow Media is a great resource with an extensive selection of Bible study material, video elements, devotionals, and more.

Frequently asked questions

Answers to some questions you are already thinking...

When do you meet?

Currently, we are meeting the Airport Campus ONLY at the following times:

Preschool - Sunday  11 am & Wednesday 7 pm
Elementary - Sunday 11 am & Wednesday 7 pm
Middle School - Sunday  11 am & Wednesday 7 pm
High School - Sunday 4pm - 7pm & Wednesday 7 pm

How do I check-in my family?

The fastest and best process for check-in for you family is to pre-register. Once registered you can check-in on the app on your phone before arriving and scan the QR code at any check-in station. Sticker(s) will be printed out for your children and their bag for preschool age

Check-in is available 20 minutes before service begins, in a foyer at one of our checkin stations Preschool and Elementary parents must pick up their security ticket , if using the mobile app it stores it for you, and ensure their children are in their proper room before going to their group or entering the sanctuary.  Middle and High School students may check themselves in and out once service has ended. All children are required to wear their name tag on the front of their clothing so their name is visible. Preschool and Elementary parents must have their pick up ticket when collecting your children.  It’s our desire to keep your children safe so we require all parents to present matching ID #’s to team members.

What are your safety protocols?

A few notes about SAFETY


When your Middle Schooler comes to any our services, the first thing they’ll do is check in at one of our computer check in stations. They will then receive a name tag, which we ask them to wear during our time together.

Note:  Students are asked to use the restrooms BEFORE the service starts.


Once service starts, students are not allowed to leave the building. If you need your student to leave early (before the service is over), we request that you come and pick them up in person. Once the service in the Big House is finished, students are dismissed. They can either meet you at a designated spot, or you can pick them up from our room.


We are always mindful of our student’s health and that of their families. Rooms are cleaned. Hand sanitizer is provided at the entrance to our room, and will be readily available throughout our facilities. We will conduct socially distanced services during these days of high Covid-19 alert, and masks are encouraged, but not required (during the service itself). If your student isn’t feeling well, we respectfully ask that they stay at home - just to be safe!  If someone in your household has Covid-19, we ask that your student avoid participating in the services until after the danger of infection is past.


All volunteers and staff are required to complete a background check.  As you would expect, safety is ALWAYS high priority throughout our campus.  In addition to security personnel, we also have cameras stationed at multiple locations throughout the building.

Middle School Pastor

Brian Biggers’ passion in life is for others to hear the heart of Jesus. Jesus had a simple message: Love God and Love People. Brian communicates this same simplistic approach to share that message. His unique way of communicating the Bible has helped countless people discover their purpose on this earth. He cares about (and relates to) people who have been marginalized and hurt by religion.  We think you will like his style. He has also been known to catch a fish or two in his spare time.
