Who are we?

Illuminate is the FBCH Student Ministry for grades 7-12. Our mission for our student ministry is to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through intentional discipleship. We hope to accomplish our mission by creating environments where students are encouraged to develop a faith of their own, participate in community service and missions, influence their friends and experience personal ministry.

When do we meet?

We meet every Sunday night at 5:00pm in our Youth Room which is located downstairs. Sunday School meets at 9:30am in the youth Room before service. Check us out here on our website to see the activities we have coming up.

Want to serve?

Thank you for your interest in serving in the Student Ministry! Illuminate is focused on youth discipleship and leading them individually into a personal relationship with Christ. We need strong role models who are willing to invest their time and Spiritual gifts into this mission. There are many opportunities to serve and all of them are vital to our mission. It is our desire to help you find a place to serve that best fits your natural gifting, interests, and schedule. If this is you, please contact one of our leaders (contact info under bio).
