We place a high value on families. We believe that strong marriages and families are the foundation of strong churches and communities. Mars Hill offers a number of ministries focused on helping families grow together as disciples of Jesus.
The high school years are vital in training young people to be disciples of Jesus. Statistically, 60 percent of students leave the church after high school. This means that traditionally the church hasn’t done a good job of communicating the gospel to teens and creating a legacy of disciples that is multi-generational. Mars Hill Student Ministries is focused on helping parents equip young people between the ages of 12 and 18 to be disciples of Jesus by clearly communicating the gospel, creating an environment of worship, and connecting teens to community in the church.
The end-goal of Student Ministries is to create theologically sound Jesus lovers who go on to become vital members of the church in the college years and beyond. Student Ministries meets at various times and locations, depending on the church location. For more information on Mars Hill Student Ministries, contact your local Mars Hill church.
Women are vital to a healthy church. In the Bible, it was the women who stuck by Jesus as he died on the cross. It was the women who discovered that Jesus rose from the dead and told the disciples. And it was the women who faithfully served in the early church in partnership with the apostles and elders. The early church was radical in that it encouraged women to learn about theology and Jesus, encouraged them to serve and help build the church, and deemed women as equal image bearers of God, with distinct roles. Mars Hill Women’s Ministries is focused on helping women grow more deeply in their love of Jesus, grow in their knowledge of the Bible, and get connected with one another in community with the ultimate goal of creating disciples of Jesus who make other disciples.
Each Mars Hill church oversees their respective local Women’s Ministries. Typical opportunities for women include Bible studies, moms get-togethers, book clubs, special events and conferences, and more. Mars Hill Women’s Ministries are open to all women of any age and stage of life. To learn more about Women’s Ministries available to you, or if you have questions, contact your local Mars Hill church.
