 What is Elevate Student Ministries all about?

 Our Vision: At Elevate our students will have a safe place to connect with God and  with peers, grow in their relationship with Him, and reach the lost around them. Our Verse:  Romans 12:2 – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

High School Bible Study Schedule

*High School Bible Study meets Sunday nights, 7-8:30 pm at Geo’s house (8001 Southridge Tr., Rockford)
This fall: The Book of James

True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who’ve faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God. Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Through 12 sessions, Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.
