A community of students and adults committed to living deep lives in Christ and equipped to follow him in a broken world.



. . . if there was more to life than playing video games, shopping, and going to the movies? Have you ever yearned to break out of the mold and live a deep life, a life that makes a difference? If you have, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that to live a deep life can start by simply asking Jesus to be the Lord of your life; for everyone who asks receives. The bad news is that living a deep life is not glamorous or showy and therfore many young people never realize the fullest potential of their life. Our culture distracts us just enough to keep us from discovering the abundant life that awaits us in Christ. Thankfully there is more good news. The student ministry at Church of the Palms is committed to helping every young person escape the "Shallow Life Syndrome" and plunge headlong into a deep and meaningful life.

Our vision is to see every student reach his or her fullest potential by integrating their faith and realizing unique gifts and abilities to work in God's Harvest Field.


We believe . . .
That we live in a broken world in which culture is influencing students to lead shallow lives.
That Jesus came to reconcile (literally bring together; restore to harmony) the world to God and has invited us to join him in his work.
That every young person has been created in the Image of God and uniquely gifted to make a positive impact in the world.
