About

Welcome to Student Ministries at ECRC. We exist to bring students closer to Jesus. Our mission is to engage students in a welcoming community that loves, grows, and serves together. We do this by creating a space of unconditional love and acceptance that will allow for authentic and genuine relationships. By teaching solid Biblical truths that allow us to grow together. And by serving the world around us like Jesus taught and did! Our Student Ministries provide opportunities for outreach, community, discipleship ministry, and service for all students. Meetings involve recreational activities and fellowship that include small group Bible studies, doctrinal instruction, leadership development and spiritual growth through age appropriate service/mission projects. We desire to see our youth make a life-changing connection to Jesus.
