Echo Student Ministries is the teen department of Elkview Baptist Church! Echo Student Ministries is divided into two groups: middle school (6th-8th) and high school (9th-12th). The goal of the teen ministry is to see students saved and conform to the image of Christ. Their bible verse is Ephesians 5:1 – “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”
On Sunday mornings, each group meets for Sunday School in their respective places. The middle school meets on the second floor of the main building, while the high school meets in the Student Center on the north side of the property.
On Sunday evenings, the teens meet in the Student Center for an hour of Scripture reading and prayer. The students break out into groups and pray for various items such as the salvation of the lost, our church, missionaries, and each other.
On Wednesdays, the middle school starts in the Student Center to sing and hear preaching while the high school starts in the gym for game time. After 45 minutes, the groups switch. The Wednesday night preaching is normally expository. Students are challenged to take God’s word and apply it to their lives.
On Thursday evenings, the high school meets at Pastor Clint’s house for “Dinner & Discipleship”. The students eat dinner, study God’s Word at a deeper level, discuss the text, and pray.
