Children



Children's Ministry

Sundays 9:00AM; 10:30AM & Tuesdays 7:30PM

In Children’s Church, children are invited to glorify God through a time of communal prayer and worship. Children’s Church also includes small group time that creates a place for Children to grow spiritually through Biblical learning and caring relationships. We also offer a Special Needs ministry in order to ensure that every child is given the support they need in order to be able to grow in their faith. Our Girls and Cadets create a space for children to build relationships as children of various backgrounds, learn about the Bible, and have fun together. Our Bible Club focuses on reaching out to the community.



Youth



Youth Ministry


The Youth Group is dedicated to partnering with parents to help teens develop as more devoted and mature disciples of Christ through an intentional focus on building developmental assets and relationship building. Our youth group meets each Sunday morning in the Youth Leadership Class at 9:00am (and teens can arrive a few minutes before class to enjoy some breakfast).  While our youth group has a number of regularly scheduled activities, our youth ministry leader is committed to building better one-on-one relationships with teens through attending teens' extracurricular activities and hanging out with them in their local contexts. We believe that this sort of relationship-building is the most important thing we do in achieving our mission and our events supplement that goal rather than the relationship building adding to an events-driven ministry program.



Young Adults



Young Adult/College Ministry

Fridays 7:00PM

Our Young Adult/College Ministry is led by adults who are passionate about seeing them learn more about Jesus. We meet every  Friday night to address real issues we face everyday as believers.  We discuss what the Word of God says and how to apply it to our lives. This group is 18+ only. Refreshments are provided. 



Men



Men's Ministry

2nd Sundays 6PM

Despite the ungodliness of our day, many men have made a quality commitment to walk with God and to live in obedience to the wisdom of God’s Word. Men Empowered is a collection of such men! Headquartered primarily at Shield of Faith Christian Center, this 38 year-old church founded and pastored by Apostle Henry B. Alexander and Dr. Marty Alexander, Men Empowered consists of hundreds of men who meet monthly on the second Sunday evening at 6:00PM.

 

Our mission is to unify and encourage men and boys spiritually and socially and to invest in preparing our sons for spiritual greatness for generations to come. Beyond the discipling of Christian men, Men Empowered has a passion to reach those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior: We have a special burden to reach young men and boys so that the Gospel will continue powerfully and expansively for generations to come.

Women



Women's Ministry

Wednesdays 6PM

Women's Ministry is geared with off-campus social interaction and on-campus thought provoking sessions to keep the singles of our church in a mindset of wholesome growth and abundant overflow. Our thought is taken from John 10:10, and says, "I have come that you may have life, and life more abundantly". These words hold the heartbeat of the Women's Ministry; as it single-mindedly focuses on developing the whole person in such a manner that the social boundaries of race, gender, age, or marital status could never contain the sum of its unfolding. And whether or not such a life of a Women's Ministry member progresses into married bliss or single satisfaction; it surely will progress.
