The Sherwood Student Ministry strives to partner with parents/guardians to develop fully devoted and equipped followers of Jesus Christ. Students are challenged to be biblically literate in a biblically illiterate world. Our desire is that students come to know, seek and obey Christ in daily surrender to His Lordship and become passionate about loving God and loving others.

Strength to Stand Conference | January 18-20, 2020
The Strength to Stand Student Bible Conferences are designed to offer a well-balanced, intense conference that will challenge your students to go beyond the surface of casual Christianity and bring them into a lifetime commitment to Jesus Christ. Born of a vision to see thousands of students congregating in the Great Smoky Mountains these conferences are designed for students yearning for a deeper, more effective relationship with Christ. In addition to discipleship, students will be given the opportunity to respond to the Gospel. We make no apology in confronting lost students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This conference will be an awesome time for our students to not only sit under excellent teaching, but also to get good time together as a group.
Since we will be in the beautiful Smokey Mountains we are planning on spending some of our free time hiking one of their famous trails and enjoying some of the fun amenities that Pigeon Forge has to offer!

STUDENT Connect groups
At Sherwood, we believe spiritual growth is important. For that reason, we challenge every person to do life together with other believers in a Connect Group. A Connect Group is an environment of biblical community where students can feel welcome and accepted, encounter Christ and His Word and be discipled. Our groups spend time in God’s Word through Bible-based curriculum. Each group is encouraged to study the Bible weekly and hang out quarterly
