BreakPoint is a student ministry for ages 12-19. Our ultimate goal is to see students navigate the rocky road of adolescence, teen and college years with Godly guidance, and to develop a spiritually healthy ministry in each of their lives.
Why are we called BreakPoint? In the spiritual journey of every student there are always breakpoints in the path that cause them to re-evaluate what they know and where they are at. We urge students upon reaching this breakpoint to rely on God and have bold faith that he will help them cross this unforeseen gap.
The Apostle Paul once spoke of this method of relying on God at the breakpoints of our lives.
2 Corinthians 1:8-10 (NLT)
8 We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. 9 In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. 10 And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.
The Journey Class- Every Wednesday night students meet in the BreakPoint Classroom and discuss a variety of Christ-centered topics that can be easily applied to their lives.
Student Gathering Service- One Friday night each month, our BreakPoint students & Hyphen young adults come together for a dynamic worship experience. After Party- Following each Student Gathering Service we plan an entertaining after party (laser tag, bowling, jump zones, pizza parties, gym nights, etc).
Fusion Small Groups- Once every three months, students meet in the homes of various youth staff members and enjoy a time of fellowship while discussing Christ-centered topics.
The Genesis Project- Seeking to provide new beginnings for people in our community, every other month our students provide volunteer service to various causes in the area. We all also take this time to perform evangelistic outreach in our area.
