Middle School Ministry

Jesus Christ invites all to “come and see” who He is and what He is about. Village middle school ministry is a place for students grades 6-8 to come and see. A place we gather to encounter, learn about and worship a truly remarkable God.

John 1:45-46 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip.

This year at Theophilus, we will center ourselves on the theme of justice as we:

  • prayerfully shed light on the tensions and fractures of our culture
  • look towards the Gospel for an active, prophetic way of peace

We believe it is in and through the life of Jesus that we engage the areas of race, gender, and class. We are called to make known the liberating Good News for all people, in all places, at all times. God’s heart for justice is revealed from the first pages of Scripture to the last, as He relentlessly presses towards the redemption of the marginalized and the suffering. As we choose the way of Jesus, let us live boldly into the beloved community, where the image of God is recognized in each human being from every nation, tribe, people, and language. (Revelations 7:9).



Student Ministries offers a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. These are opportunities for students to earn money to help cover the cost of camps, conferences, and mission trips. Check back in the Fall for our next Fundraiser.
