Ardent Students Ministries builds intentional relationships between leaders and students in order for them to Experience and Express the Essence of Jesus Christ. Through Groups, where our sole purpose is to encourage and motivate students to grow into the person God has designed them to be, students experience a safe place of belonging where they will feel confident inviting others along in their journey with Christ.
We gather every Sunday at 12pm as a Middle School family. We have fun, worship Jesus, hear a message from scripture, and discuss life and faith. Our Ardent JH leaders and students would love to have you be part of our family.
During the School term we gather in weekly small groups to grow, connect, and learn together. These groups exist to help students connect with other students and leaders, get into scripture, and talk about life. These groups are located at various homes at different days and times depending on the grade and gender. Our Ardent leaders would love to have you join their group.
On weeks that we do not have small groups, students are encouraged to join our equipping sessions designed to deepen their knowledge, understanding, and application of faith. These nights we will be equipping students to own their faith for themselves and challenging them to have a thriving relationship with Jesus.
ARDENT & WYLDLIFE
Wyldlife is a nonprofit Christian organization that pursues Middle School students who don’t know Jesus by going to the public schools and meeting them on their “turf.” Ardent JH partners closely with Wilsonville Wyldlife through camps, Wildlife clubs, and epic Friday night parties. We encourage our students to not just attend these gatherings, but to bring their friends who may or may not know Jesus.
Ardent High School Student Ministry motivates students to experience and express the essence of Jesus in our lives transforming us into the people God has called us to be. Through this we experience life to the fullest and are connected to the heart of God on a daily basis. Ardent pursues this through our weekly Wednesday events and small groups that meet based on grade and gender during the week. We also serve the broken and sometimes forgotten through City Team International in Portland. During Spring break, we build homes in Mexico through Amor Ministries and it is an absolutely incredible experience.
Ardent Wednesday night is for high school students to connect to the Father+Son+Holy Spirit. Dinner / Testimony / Prayer / Worship / The Word all designed for high school students to minister to one another and hear what God has to say for their lives.
If your child would like to participate in an Ardent event, they will need to have a completed liability form on file with us. You are also welcome to pick one up in the Ardent Youth Room.

Over the last two years tons of students have grown to love MOVE and the life changing week that it is.
MOVE is a five-day high school event held all over the country designed to amplify the call of Christ on students lives to become kingdom workers.
Kingdom workers are called to stand out; to be different and make a difference. There is a stark contrast between a life lived for the King and one lived for anyone or anything else.
What are those differences?
How should our lives be distinct?
