We exist to glorify God by loving our community through proclaiming the Word of God.

Equipped High School Ministry


The vision and goal of the High School Ministry at Shades Mountain Community Church is to see every student develop as a disciple that makes disciples for the glory of God.

We hope to accomplish this goal by instructing and involving students in holistic discipleship for their whole lives.  In doing so, we first want to learn how to praise God for relating the gospel to us through his Son.  It is because of the gospel that we also want to grow in relating the gospel to ourselves through the various spiritual disciplines, relating the gospel to one another through community, and, finally, relating the gospel to the world through missional living.

When we meet:

The High School Ministry meets in the Jones House Basement every Sunday morning from 9:00-10:15 and every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00.


If you’d like more information about getting connected with the High School Ministry, please contact Matt McGrew.
