Students (6th-12th)

New Heights Student Ministry (NHSM) serves students in grades 6-12. Our vision is “to release students into the world who know, love, and follow Jesus.”

Relationships are really important to us. In fact, everything we do is geared toward building Christ-centered community between leaders, students, and their peers.


Sunday Morning Student Services

On Sunday mornings students at New Heights come together to honor God through worship, experience Him through His word, and connect with Him through prayer and communion during our celebration worship services. Our services combine teaching and music that is specifically geared toward teenagers in an effort help them see that Jesus is the only source of true joy and true life. We have two age specific services on Sunday mornings.
9:00am: Jr High (6-8th grade)
10:45am: High School (9-12th grade)

Events and Trips


We love gathering our students and leaders together to have crazy fun, worship the Lord, and learn together what it means to follow Him! So many memories, bonding moments, and life-changing experiences happen at our events.

We have day events, weekend retreats, week-long camps, and mission trips both in and out of the country! Whether it’s riding rollercoasters in Branson, shopping in Kansas City, tubing on Lake Table Rock, hiking in the Rocky Mountains, or playing soccer in the villages of Honduras, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
