High School Ministry (HSM) is a group of 9th-12th grade students and adult mentors who gather to worship God and connect with each other. We desire to grow to be more like Jesus, to serve others in love, and to reach the world with the message of hope in Jesus Christ.
6:30-8:30pm in The Venue
HSM offers an exciting atmosphere where students come together for an evening of student-led worship and relevant teaching from the Bible. Then students connect in Growth Groups, led by awesome adult mentors, to encourage one another in their journey with Jesus Christ.
11:00am-12:30pm in HSM Room 208 (East Wing)
Come in, grab a coffee and a pastry, and enjoy community-driven and discussion-focused HSM. We open up God’s Word, look at what it means, and apply it to our lives as followers of Christ.
The work weekend is a huge blessing to our families within HSM. Our students and some adult leaders, go up to Hume and work for the weekend as part of their kitchen staff. Each student typically earns $150-$200 throughout the weekend and that money goes directly towards the cost of that student’s trip to Hume! So amazing! You can reserve your student’s spot on the night of Hume Blitz but don’t delay, spots are limited!

During Spring Break 2019, we will continue a 25+ year tradition of loving and serving others and sharing the gospel. HSM is blessed to have a continued partnership with Niños de Baja—a Christian-outreach ministry in El Porvenir, a tiny farm town 50 miles south of the California/U.S. border. Niños de Baja provides a loving home for children who have been orphaned, abused or abandoned; where each child is met with the love of Christ and the teaching of the Word. Ninos de Baja also has a heart for community outreach to El Porvenir and beyond.
TRIP DATES: MARCH 24TH-30TH
City Impact has been around for 34 years with a consistent mission: to see a spiritual awakening in the Tenderloin, the toughest district of San Francisco. City Impact’s mission is to stand in the gap and intercede for the forgotten and ignored people of the Tenderloin. 30,000 residents live within one square mile, with 6,000 homeless and 3,000 children. City Impact believes that one man or woman can make a Kingdom difference. Our team will serve through very tangible acts of love and kindness such as feeding the hungry (Rescue Mission, Meal Deliveries), clothing the naked (Thrift Store), educating the children (School), loving our neighbor (Adopt a Building), and making disciples (connecting people back to the church). This promises to be an amazing kickoff to our summer. $200 price of the trip includes meals (except while traveling), lodging, the mission experience through City Impact, and a debrief/celebration afternoon at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Sign-ups start on March 6th. Spots are limited!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FOLLOW CHRIST?
This summer we want students to understand that Christ followers. . .follow Christ. Although many people in our culture have identified as a “Christian”, there is often a misunderstanding of how Jesus defines following. Even the earliest followers of Christ wrestled with the same questions we face today: “How do we follow a God we cannot see?” We will see how Jesus himself answers this question and enables us to follow Him through His Spirit and the Church.
WHY HEAD & HEART?
In this day in age, we are seeing many disciples of Christ that genuinely desire to follow after Jesus; however, they are doing so apart from a disciplined knowledge of God’s Word. When we live this way, we find ourselves getting tossed to-and-fro by our emotions and others’ opinions because we are not anchored in biblical truth. This summer at Wildwood, we are going to learn what it means to truly study the Bible and how, through a disciplined reading of the Scriptures, our heads and our hearts are balanced and anchored in what it means to truly know God.
