free•way:  noun. a toll-free highway

Middle and high school students are on a fast-paced journey and need a place to be themselves, free from the pressures of daily life, and to just be teens for a moment. Freeway is that place. They can relax, be with friends, and invest in the most important relationship of all, their relationship with Jesus Christ. Freeway means Jesus paid the toll so we can begin a journey with him. Our prayer is that students will grow in their relationship with Christ and with others, realizing that this is the ride of their lives!

Our Mission


Freeway Student Ministry exists to develop personal and spiritual growth, foster an environment of true worship, to have an active role in outreach to our local area, and to participate in home and foreign missions.

Freeway Is ...

  • Safe  In everything we do, our student ministry team provides a safe atmosphere for students.   We have policies in place to keep students safe whether at home, on campus, or on a youth trip.  It is important to us to provide a place that is safe  physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  • Relevant  We are committed to providing a ministry that is relevant to today's student.  Our Student Ministry not only ministers to them by making biblical teachings fresh and exciting, but also engages students on their own terms, using Facebook, Instagram, texting, and other tools to communicate and be in relationship with them.  
  • Transforming  We believe that middle and high school students are in a season of transformation. They have many opportunities to be spiritually transformed through our weekly worship together, confirmation, outreach to the community, and missions at home and abroad.

Each summer, Freeway Student Ministry offers two mission trips. Check back for the 2019 planned trips.
