Journey Students

Journey Students exists to help students find Jesus and follow him fully. This happens through 3 environments: gathering at Converge, connecting through a J-Group and serving on a J-Team.
(1st Tuesday of the month, 6:30 p.m.)

It’s our monthly gathering that happens the first Tuesday of every month. Students experience powerful worship and a message they can apply to their daily life. The night will be topped off with an unforgettable afterparty that includes fun activities, snacks and giveaways.


We believe we weren’t created to do life alone. That’s why we have student J-Groups! J-Groups allow students to connect with others their age who understand what they’re going through. From groups playing kickball to talking about relationships, there’s definitely a J-Group that fits every schedule and interest.


We believe serving is the height of spiritual growth, and we have lots of opportunities for students to use their gifts and make a difference by serving on our J-Team. Serving opportunities are available on Tuesday nights and on the weekends.

Although we had to cancel our Rise 2020 summer camp due to COVID-19, we packed all that fun into something called Rise One Night and it will be happening on Friday, August 14th from 6pm to Midnight. Rise One Night will be an opportunity for students to level up spiritually and grow in their relationship with God while enjoying inspirational worship and practical teaching. We’ll have a “Hot Seat” forum where you will also get a chance to ask Our NextGen Pastor, Brad ANY question you want. Plus, there will be Chick-Fil-A and giveaways!
