Student Ministry

Our Vision

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.

weekly EVENTS



Student Connect Groups

CONNECT GROUPS MEET AT 11 am - noon.
Location | Hope Building 

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

Student Leadership University Logo

Student Leadership University (SLU)

Our student ministry desires to invest and equip the student leaders within our ministry, and we believe that Student Leadership University offers a world class program that teaches Christian leadership as well as a strong biblical worldview. Student Leadership University’s mission is to develop and equip student leaders to think, dream, and lead. SLU strives to instill future tense thinking; character-driven decision making; ownership of biblical values; and a commitment to influence through service. SLU believes that God has called us to prepare the next generation to Think, Dream, and Lead through a challenging series of leadership training processes that equip them to have a Renaissance Mind, The Heart of a Patriot, The Soul of a Saint, The Discipline of a Champion and the Influence of a Leader. They accomplish this vision through leadership adventures that are marketed through significant relationships across multiple denominational lines, delivered with excellence, and lead to a sustainable, long-term relationship.

This event is for students who has completed the 8th Grade - 12 Grade.
