Our Core Values

    • We desire to see students connecting other people, within the community with the Truth of God’s Word

Our Unique Values

  • Availability: Students, parents, and leaders know that we are available and excited to be partnered with them in their journey to grow closer to God.
  • Campus Involvement: Students know that they will see us on their school campuses either visiting or involved in campus ministries.
  • Celebration: Students know that they will have fun and celebrate life during student ministry programs and events.
  • Community: ALL students are accepted and loved.
  • Grace and Truth: Students know that they will not be looked down upon, but know that we stand firmly on the teachings in the Bible.
  • Leadership Development: Adults and students are identified and equipped to become leaders within the ministry and their community.
  • Parental Support: Parents know that they are loved and have the full support of the ministry as we partner together to disciple their students.

Our Methods

We follow a five-part strategy to help students merge faith and life. 

  1. We study the Scriptures.  We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am in the Middle and High School Rooms to dive into God's Word

  2. We meet in LifeGroups.  High School students meet in a small group setting on Sunday nights in the Underground. The purpose is to grow in their walk with Christ alongside one another in their LifeGroup by studying scripture, prayer, celebrating life, and accountability. 

  3. We worship together. Rally @ Decipher on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 pm welcomes middle school students and student leaders to the Family Life Center (FLC) for student led worship.  Josh and other guest speakers share from God's Word and students will also enjoy time to hangout, games, and free snacks.

  4. We serve.  Our students love to love on our community.  Some of the areas  we serve are SMORES, a variety of locations (Summer Missions & Recreation for Every Student), D-Now, and Christmas for our Community. Also, during the football season, there's the opportunity to feed the NAHS football team their pre-game meal.

    High School Students also have the opportunity to serve within the church by helping out in AWANA on Wednesday nights. To sign up, contact Dena Riley.  For additional information on the AWANA Program, click here!
  5. We travel.  Retreats, events, and mission trips are available throughout the year within our student ministry.  Check out the EVENTS tab or our social media pages for more info.
