STUDENT MINISTRY

 

 

 

 

 

Students in grades 6-12: We welcome you! When Jesus did ministry, He understood and accepted people for who they were, and we accept you for the person you are. At VPC Student Ministry, we design our programs to meet you where you are. Contact us anytime, our doors are always open.
