High School


High School (Grades 9 – 12)

The vision of the high school ministry at Fourth Presbyterian Church is to come alongside parents (Proverbs 1:8-9) in raising students who know the Gospel (Proverbs 1:5), believe it in their hearts (John 20:31), and, by grace, choose to live it out in their lives (Ephesians 2:10). We do so through the teaching of God’s word (Romans 10:17), the fellowship of the church (John 13:35), and discipleship of our students (2 Timothy 2:2).

The foundation of our ministry is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and our students are at the heart of all we do. Each of the events we run has at least one of these purposes at the core: teaching (Acts 2:42), discipleship (2 Timothy 2:2), fellowship (Galatians 6:10), or outreach (Jeremiah 1:7). We want everything we do to bring God glory (Revelation 19:7) and challenge our students to grow (Matthew 5:6) as they live life to the full – the way God intended (John 10:10).

If you have any questions about the high school ministry or are interested in getting plugged in, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our high school directors, Nate Robbins at nrobbins@4thpres.org or Chelsea Custer at ccuster@4thpres.org
