Fellowship Student Ministries seeks to love God and love junior high and high school students by reaching out through grace to build mature and equipped Christ followers who will make disciples of all nations. We want to shatter the idea that following Jesus is boring, but instead, a relationship with Him is where the abundant life is found. This is accomplished by fostering an environment that is fun, open, relevant, and engaging for students of all ages and demographics.
At FSM, the most important thing that we do is Small Groups. We envision a city where students are fully devoted followers of Christ and are living fruitful lives for Him. And we believe the only way for this vision to become a reality is to give students the opportunity to live in community with one another like Jesus did with His disciples.

Small Group Leaders

SG Leaders Fall Retreat

 

When it comes to environments for spiritual growth, we think circles are better than rows (1 Thess. 2:8). This is why Small Groups are at the heart of our ministry. Everything we do revolves around the strengthening of the Small Group. When a student asks how to follow Jesus, we’re going to tell the student to see what their leader does and imitate them (Hebrews 13:7).

We take very seriously the leaders we select to lead with us. Before becoming a Small Group Leader, they fill out a Volunteer Application (which is no quick task) so we can get to know them and their walk with Christ, meet with a staff member for an in-person interview, go through a background check, and take a sexual abuse awareness training course through MinistrySafe. Once they meet all the criteria and we feel as if they have the capabilities to lead and disciple students, we ask them to come on the team.

Interested in being a small group leader? Take the first step and apply below.
