Welcome to Faithbridge Student Ministry! We partner with parents to pursue discipleship in the home. and intentionally develop students as they discover God's missional call to be a Kingdom difference-maker.

What Is Discipleship?
Discipleship is an intentional relationship in which we walk alongside other disciples in order to encourage, equip, and challenge one another in love to grow toward maturity in Christ. By asking for discipleship, you are entering into the strongest form of personal development, spiritual growth, and accountability we offer at FSM. Through trust, honesty, and vulnerability, you will experience transparent relationships that will transform your life.
How Does It Work?
Discipleship is simply this: you and a peer of the same gender will connect with an adult mentor that is ready to intentionally pour into you in the context of scripture. Discipleship groups meet depending on the schedules of the mentor and students but usually set aside a weekly time to meet. Many discipleship groups meet before or after school at a coffee shop.
How Many Are In A Group?
A Discipleship usually consists of two students to one adult leader ratio. Sometimes we have one on one, but no more than three students at a time in one Discipleship group.
If you’re ready to pursue a new level of depth in your relationship with Christ, ask to be discipled. We do not want this to just be another “to do” in your life, but an opportunity for authentic growth. For more info, you can e-mail [email protected].
We deeply desire to partner with parents in the discipleship of their students.
We believe that parents are crucial in the continued growth of their students, and it is our goal to equip parents with tools and resources to actively engage in their students’ lives. We provide several tools that are designed to give parents easy access to discipling their student. These tools include Tips from the Toolbox, our weekly Snapshot, annual Parent Orientations, and quarterly Parent Workshops. We want to partner with you in order to promote and enable discipleship in your home. Please contact us to let us know how we can serve you.

In [FSM], we value our students being known and invested in because we believe that is how we make more and stronger disciples. One of the ways we accomplish this is by encouraging our leaders to reach out to the students they see on Sundays and Wednesdays. Our leaders do this in a variety of ways such as texting, calling, and attending functions such as plays, sporting events, and other activities. [FSM] leaders are thoroughly vetted, known, and background checked. Just like Jesus knew and invested in His disciples, we ask our leaders to do the same.
The weekly FSM Snapshot is the best way to stay connected to all that's happening in Faithbridge Student Ministry. Our Snapshot is delivered every Thursday right to your cellular pocket technological device (amazing!) and includes campus-specific updates from Launch, Elevate, Pointbreak, and The Road.
On Sundays, a student can expect a worship experience for their ministry (Launch, Elevate, Pointbreak). These include a variation of worship, sermons catered to their age group, small group discussions, games, and more.
On Wednesday nights, we host our Curious small groups. These are small groups led by adult leaders, divided by grade and gender. The really unique thing about these groups is that they stick together from 6th grade to 12th grade, developing deep relational traction and trust.
The goal of Launch is to blast off with 6th graders as they head into junior high!
Launch is all about relationships as we seek after Jesus and grow in our faith! We believe this "in-between" phase is a critical time in a preteen's faith journey. We hope to engage their interests through exploring the Bible and affirming that God sees them, knows them, and loves them unconditionally. In a word, it's just awesome!
Elevate is a fast-paced, high energy way to introduce junior highers to Jesus and accelerate their faith walk!
Elevate is a junior high church experience like no other, designed specifically to help 7th - 8th graders connect with Jesus, each other, and a caring adult. We also train and develop our students to be difference-makers in God’s Kingdom through numerous mission projects, Bible study, and discipleship.
We believe it's important to help students build a strong Biblical-foundation as they approach adulthood.
Take one look, and you will quickly discover that Pointbreak is a student ministry dedicated to helping teenagers experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ! Our goal is for high school students to thrive in community with other teens and be discipled in their walk with Jesus. We are a community that strives to be real with each other as we grow in our faith in Christ.

We are better together and small groups give students a place to do life with Jesus and each other.
We believe that life is best lived in community, which is why we strongly encourage all students to get involved in a Curious Small Group at the start of the school year. Each group consists of around 8-12 students of the same gender and grade and 2 adult leaders.
We Are Here For You!
We don’t ask for perfection, we ask for a desire to show up, to share your life, and to encourage others to share theirs as well. Be a pursuer of community, not just a receiver, and experience the truth that as a part of the church, you are not alone!
We believe in providing a gospel-centered, inclusive environment for individuals with specific needs.
Our heart is to love and serve children, students, and adults with special needs and lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We desire to support, affirm, and provide hope to the families of children with special needs. Every person who enters our doors is a gift and each has tremendous value in the church and among our body of believers.

We believe mission is a lifestyle and that each student is called to be a Kingdom difference-maker.
The Road is the most substantive opportunity of growth, impact, and development we offer students. We believe student ministry is not just a ministry for students, but the ministry of students to the world. The Road invites students to answer the call of the Gospel and engage on mission. Our goal is to be and make Kingdom Difference-Makers.
Living On Mission
Opportunities vary from delivering food to local food and outreach partners to telling the Good News on the streets of London. The Road sends students across the state, the USA, and the world. From Alabama to El Savador, students can serve from 1 week to 2 weeks.
