Student Ministry

BVC's Student Ministries seeks to have fun, build relationships, and most importantly equip these youth to know Jesus Christ and show others to do the same. We achieve this through the following ways:

  • Navigate

    (6th-8th grade)- Navigate is our middle school ministry, which is designed to help our MS students 'navigate' these three questions: Who is God? Who am I? Who are my friends? We meet each week during 2nd service after worship (11:15am)-12:00pm in the Student Center for activities and teaching.

  • Connect

     (9th-12th grade)- Connect is where our high school students can come for hang-out time, worship, teaching, small groups, and of course drink coffee and tea at our cafe! We meet from 6:00pm-8:00pm each Sunday night.

  • In almost every month we have one event for the students to come and participate. These events vary in their theme, but all are designed to show that we can have fun that glorifies God, and gives an opportunity for our students to invite their friends outside of BVC. 

    All students are required to have a activity release form on file. You can print one HERE.

  • Missions

    BVC students answer the call of Jesus Christ in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) to engage in lives of service, in the Grand Rapids area and beyond. Short-term mission trips are offered every summer, and there are a variety of other opportunities to engage in local ministry. See Missions
