The Student’s Programs serve 6th-12th grade.
At ELEVATE Student Ministry we believe that community is an essential part of our faith. As a result of this belief, we offer many small group opportunities to students so they can learn more about their faith and grow as a community.

Part of our faith calls us to serve those that are in need in our community, in our country and around the world. ELEVATE Student Ministry provides awesome opportunities each year for all students to get involved, get connected, and to grow in their faith as a part of a mission trip. Below is a description of our Summer Mission Trips.
SOUL (Serving Orlando with Unconditional Love) was created by ELEVATE Student Ministry in 2011. Students are given the opportunity to serve our local community through various organizations. The trips both takes place in Downtown Orlando and runs from Sunday evening to Friday evening. All rising 7th-12th grade students are encouraged to participate!
Every other year, our high school students are offered the opportunity to travel to Los Chiles, Costa Rica to participate in Agua Viva. Students are immersed in the culture of the community while participating in service through well building, home improvement and working with children. This trip is open to rising 10th-12th grade students.
Each year our IMPACT Singers raise money to go on a mission trip to a different city to sing, learn, and serve. Past trips have included: New York City, Baton Rouge and Chicago.
In Student Ministry, we believe that worship is an important part of our relationship with Christ. We encourage students to participate in worship on Sundays, whether through the Contemporary (9:00am – MFLC Gym) or Traditional Services (11:00am – Sanctuary).
Why We Exist
We hope to encourage each student to get to know and begin an intimate relationship with God that will last a lifetime. ELEVATE Student Ministry reaches middle and high school students and helps them:
- CONNECT through cultivating authentic relationships with God, ourselves and others.
- PARTICIPATE in small groups, worship and Bible study in order to awaken spiritually and personalize Biblical truths.
- MOVE from just learning about to living out the Gospel through discovery, development and practice of our spiritual gifts.
- FOLLOW Jesus Christ by SERVING our community and our world.
- GROW continually in faith by allowing the spirit of God to work, so that we may reflect the character of Christ.
