Helping students take the next step in their journey toward Christ.

Middle School is a time of significant changes in almost all areas of life and we desire to create a place for students to feel safe and cared for.

Asian American Student Ministry
Register online
Fridays, 7:30-9:30 pm
The Asian-American Student Ministry (AASM) serves primarily Asian-American middle school and high students. We intentionally create a culture-specific space to allow students to explore their identity through talking about common values and struggles, as well as providing predominantly Asian-American leaders to model for them what it means to embrace the ethnicity God has given them.

We meet on Friday nights from 7:30-9:30 pm in a local home. A typical night at AASM includes games, worship, teaching, small group discussion and then snacks. AASM provides a different curriculum than Middle School Ministry so that students can choose to attend both.
