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.
Our goal is simple: to disciple students in their walk with Christ. We are all about relationships, growth, and mission as we learn and experience what it really means to follow Jesus as a student.

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.
Student Discipleship Coordinator
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
