SoulFire STUDENT Ministry

SoulFire Student Ministry is for all students from 7th to 12th grade and meets at Oakwood on Sundays from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (calendar below for specific dates). Our goal is to offer a place for students to come together and learn that they are not alone and that there is a God who not only loves them but will always be there for them. We teach Biblical messages on topics that are relevant to the students' lives. Our team of adult volunteers love students, listen to them and enjoy spending time with them. We want to encourage students to pursue a stronger relationship with God, and learn to follow His plan for their lives.

Throughout the year we host a number of events and take students on retreats. We also work with the students to serve our community through service projects and also participate in mission trips.
