The Student Ministry at Shady Oaks Baptist, made up of students in the 6th -12th grades, is a great place to connect and build relationships with other students. We want to connect you into relationships with others, with Christ, and with opportunities to serve and grow in your faith. The Student Ministry is real, it is filled with people who care, it is challenging, it is safe, and we want to live life together!

The Gospel Project . Sundays at 9:30 a.m.

The Gospel Project for Students is a Christ-centered, chronological study that will take your students on a journey through the storyline of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way, students will discover the big picture of what God has been doing throughout redemptive history, and what it means for them.

Family Worship .sundays at 11:00 a.m.

We encourage families to worship together during our weekend services. We hope to integrate children and students into the life of the church where they can live out our mission with their parents and other adults. As a way to introduce this idea, we do Family Worship Weekend on the last Sunday of the month, encouraging families to worship together in a special service.

Collide . Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

Collide is where God's truth and our lives collide together.


God calls the family to play a vital role in discipling the next generation. How this is accomplished varies from family to family and is as unique as the DNA of each home. Family discipleship isn’t one-size-fits-all, and it isn’t easy—even the most intentional of Christian parents may find themselves at a loss as to how to begin. We want to come alongside parents to help them craft their own approach to family discipleship. Though each family is unique, we believe that vibrant family discipleship can take shape through family worship and a framework of time, moments and milestones.
