NEXT GENERATION CHRIST FOLLOWERS
Here at Pole Creek, we take very seriously the charge given by Christ to make disciples. Whether it be with the littlest ones in our pre-school and children's ministry, or amongst our middle and high school groups, and even through college years, our ministry is centered on the teaching of God's Word at age appropriate levels so that all may be able to know Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.
We have a vibrant and growing student ministry. There are many opportunities for students to engage in strong Christ-centered relationships and activities that help them grow deeper in their relationship with God.

Each Sunday morning we meet together at 9:30 to enjoy some fellowship and breakfast. We start our service with some worship songs and an engaging topic at 9:45 that usually lasts about 25-30 minutes. After that, we split into smaller groups by class and discuss the Bible Study lesson along with practical, daily life applications.
Sunday evenings are our connect group times. High school and middle school groups will meet in their respective groups at different homes to bond and strengthen relationships while having another wonderful, biblical discussion that is practical and vital to their daily lives. This is an exciting time where students can encourage one another and grow together with their peers. These Connect Groups meet off-campus from 5-7 pm. Middle School groups will meet weekly and alternate between Jamie and Allison Frady's home and Chase and Katie Harris' home. High School groups meet at Jeff and Tina Foster's home on a biweekly schedule. For more information or directions call Pastor Chase 828-280-3247.
Every Wednesday, beginning at 5:30 pm, we gather together at the church for our mid-week Great Commission student service. We first meet as a large group and gather to share a meal together. Then, we break up into small groups for 30 minutes and learn about world missions through teaching, story, activity, and other means. Finally, we gather back together as a large group for a time of worship, teaching, and fellowship.
PERSONAL DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING/MENTORING
Our vision and desire at Pole Creek Baptist Church are that every student has the opportunity to receive personal mentoring and discipleship. Although we firmly believe that the parents have the primary responsibility to disciple their children in the home, and we make every effort to support and encourage that, we also realize that sometimes this does not happen, as it ought to for various reasons. Therefore, we have leaders who are committed and invested in small group discipleship/mentoring for those who desire.
If you are a middle school or high school student, or are parents of a student, and are looking to get connected with a ministry that centers on Biblical truth and discipleship, we invite you to join us at Pole Creek. We would love to have you with us.
