Connect with each other, connect with God

Here at Riverbend, the Student Ministry exists to teach students about God, equip them to make disciples and prepare them for a life of faith. From our weekly services, small group times, and our insane events like ATX Students Weekend and Beach Week, we want to see our students become vibrant followers of Christ, and flourish in their relationship with each other and their leaders.

JUN 30–JUL 3, 2019 | Middle School

Want a chance to experience what mission work is about without leaving the country? Our 4th annual MSMA is designed to give middle schoolers the chance to foster a heart for missions and the needs of the less-fortunate through serving in our own backyard. This year we are heading to San Antonio to serve with a local mission organization during the day and come back to a local church at night to debrief, worship, and spend the night.

HIGH SCHOOL Mission trip

JUN 18–23, 2019 | High School

Every year we take a trip for a once in a lifetime opportunity to serve alongside the youth and adults of ministry partners domestically and globally — like the Siloe church in El Salvador or Hands and Feet Ministries in Mexico. This outreach has changed the lives of all who have been bold enough to go and every year we look forward to the incredible ways God will show up.
