Central Student Ministries

Central Student Ministries focuses on leading students to discover and fully own faith in Jesus. We do this through challenging and engaging messages, live worship, interactive life groups, midweek bible studies, and fun events, as well as global trips and summer camps. We want students to feel like this is a place where they belong, can be themselves, and grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Student Life Groups

CSM believes that our life groups are the key to student ministry and we want to make ours the best we can. CSM life groups are a part of our Junior High and High School programs every weekend. Life groups are connected to our weekend programming, to ensure that every student is connecting with their peers and a caring adult life group leader.

Central Student Music

Central Student Music is a team of people with a heart for Jesus. We decided several years ago that we were going to be a church that would truly lean into worship. The heart of Central Student Music is to bring people into the presence of God through music. We do this through Nights of Worship, our Weekend Services, and writing/recording original worship music.
