DV8 is our weekend teaching and small-group environment for 6th through 8th grade students. Life can be, at the same time, challenging and adventurous for middle school students. That’s why we create our DV8 weekend worship environment to provide them with opportunities to learn about and authentically live out their faith. Our weekend experiences include creative and biblically sound speakers, dynamic worship experience—complete with a live band, authentic small-group discussions, and fun games. Our goal is to help our students grow in their relationship with Jesus and teach them to figure out how to make wise decisions and maintain healthy friendships. Our ministry verse is Romans 12:1-2,
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, [a]acceptable to God, which is your [b]spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this [c]world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may [d]prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [e]acceptable and perfect.”
We want our middle school students to follow the example of Jesus and deviate from or not conform to the world around them!
2:52 is our high-school ministry. It is our dream that our high-school students will experience community and personal ministry while learning to make wise choices and live in such a way that they influence their friends and peers as they radically live out their faith. We want our high-school students to grow and mature and emulate the life of Jesus in Luke 2:52.
