Youth Ministry at Edgewood

Elevate Student Ministry exists to introduce middle and high school students to Jesus Christ and help them become His fully devoted followers. We have only two rules at Elevate; 1. have a ton of fun. 2. Be serious about our faith. You may think those don’t go together, but I think our students will tell you they go quite well together. We have gospel-centered teaching from the Bible, strive to create a safe environment for students to ask questions and explore the faith, and eat Cheetos all in one night. At Elevate we also believe that faith in action can be one of the biggest ways to learn. Service projects and road trips are scheduled throughout the year. Oh, did I mention an annual event called Districts? (picture 3,000+ students, caffeine, and Jesus...yeah, awesome!).

Your First Visit

Expect to have fun! Students will start showing up 15-30 minutes early. We have foosball, bag toss, and more. Adult leaders will be roaming about (I dare you to say “hi” before they do...I’ll buy you a soda if you do first!). When Elevate starts, we will gather together and play a group game for 15-20 minutes. Then, we’ll break into our teaching time, have small groups, and end the night with a favorite group game.

Meet Our Youth Ministry Director

Timothy Sandberg joined the Edgewood Community Church Full-Time Staff in 2017 as the Worship Arts/Youth Director.

I’ve been at Edgewood for 11+ years. My first real youth group experience at Edgewood! God used those very important years to shape my faith and led me to go to school for full-time ministry. Now, I want to bring many of those same experiences back to the students.
