Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
To see students reflect God's glory through their lives whose minds reflect on His truth and lives that reflect His worth.
The vision for our students is just an extension of the vision of our church...there is a statement in our vision document that expresses what we at Providence are about it says:
"Our duty and privilege is to conform to the divine purpose in creation and history and redemption; namely, to reflect the value of God's glory...to think, feel, and do whatever we must to make much of God. Our reason for being, our calling, our joy is to render visible the glory of God."
Our vision for our students flows from Romans 12:1-2:
"I appeal to you, by the mercies of God to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
It's about renewing the mind, transforming the heart, leading to actions that glorify God.

Partnership with the family...
I believe an effective student ministry, is to work side by side with our families. I desire to see biblically minded parents who love God and are committed to demonstrating the implications of the gospel everyday at home. I want to have a direct line with our parents and an ongoing partnership that challenges us to be the individuals God has called us to be. I hope to see this happen through discipleship with our Dads and regular 'Parent Sync' Meetings that are designed to keep the parents and youth leaders on the same page praying for our students, understanding how we can partner together in the discipleship of our children. It has been said, "Kids will reflect what they see, it's not what we say...it's what we do...that most impacts our student. If our students are going to be fully devoted followers of Christ, they have to get that first from us...as parents.
