Thank You, Student Small Group Leaders!

How do you celebrate a year of Student Ministry with a group of dedicated Small Group Leaders? You retreat! The SGL (Small Group Leader) Team spent the weekend with our ministry team to remember a great year of seeing God's work in GFC’s Student Ministry. The SGL team is made up of volunteers that have committed themselves to a year of investment in our middle and high school students. Due to the size of our student ministry, these volunteers play a vital part in the week-to-week functions, programs and events. They hear this a lot, but the ministry could not function without them!

Upon arrival at Doe River Gorge, the team took in the sights and sounds of God’s beautiful creation. In addition to having a ton of fun together, we were able to reflect on some memorable stories and events of the year. Looking back on Summer Camp in Wake Forest, Fall Retreat in Asheville, Winter Conference in Gatlinburg, and Red Eye in Nashville, among others, was a special treat for us all. The retreat came at a great time too, as many of the leaders expressed their appreciation for a time to get away with other adults and recharge, reflect, and refresh. It is truly a blessing to serve with such incredible volunteers who give their time and care away for the Kingdom. And it is well-known that after a ministry year like this, the leaders often come away feeling as blessed as the students.

Student Ministry takes a much-needed breath during June and July, before returning in August for another awesome year. We pray that God will continue to do amazing things in the lives of leaders and students, and our Staff Team is honored to be a part of it.

If you are interested in joining our amazing team of SGL’s, we would love to chat! You can contact our Student Ministry Coordinator, Carolee Morrison, at for more details and information about who we are and what we’re about.
