It’s our mission to help students find their way back to God!
We want each student to know and experience God’s love and grace, and encourage them to take the next step from wherever they are – to grow closer to Jesus. It’s our desire and passion for youth to build authentic relationships with other students and leaders so they can actively explore what living out their faith looks like. We want to help empower each student to make a difference in their home, school, and community!
Harbor Students is a place to hang out every week to laugh, build lasting relationships, and figure out how to be good news to the world around us.
HARBOR STUDENTS GATHERINGS
At South Harbor Church, we long to connect your students with Jesus in ways that will send them back out to reach the students they are in life with. We do that through a few different ways. We do it through what we call Clubs, Small Groups, and Camps/Mission Trips. Below is a description of each.
Club: Club is our big programmed night. There is no formula for how a campus is required to youth group, but this is the typical larger group gathering. Some language that can help in determining what your club night might feel like is a “party with a purpose”. It’s a fun, high energy, and, most importantly it is disarming for those who may be checking out faith for the first time. At some point, before the end of the club session, a message of Jesus is shared with the group. This message is simple to understand for anyone who attends. God loves you no matter who you are, or how you are, and you belong here.
- Middle School Club: Every Other Tuesday

Small Groups: Small Groups are weekly/biweekly meetings for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study and community with friends. They take place anywhere: a coffee shop, someone’s house, the church, a school parking lot, etc. All that matters is there is scripture, a place, and some students. There is no particular method that is right or wrong for how small groups operate other than to dig into scripture, pray with students, be appropriately vulnerable, and create a space for students to feel comfortable.
Camps/Mission Trips: There is something to getting out of our regular spaces to encounter God. Time and time again, when asking former students about what was their favorite moments from student ministries, the stories that are shared are usually from a retreat/camp/mission trip. This tells us they are a big deal! But how else would you describe a week or weekend where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?
