Salem Student Ministry reaches 7th - 12th grade students.



Salem Student Ministry exists to make Jesus famous and to equip students to own and share their faith.  While there are many fun and exciting events, everything that is done falls under the thrust of knowing and living God's word, growing in Christ, and sharing faith.  To keep up with student ministry events, feel free to follow Journey on Instagram and twitter at @salemstudentsNC and on Facebook at Salem Student Ministry.   


Salem Student Ministry meets on Wednesday evening from 6:45 - 8:15 in the Student Room (E121).  A Sunday night small group emphasizes student leadership, accountability, and discipleship and meets at the home of Pastor Russ and Leah Billo. On Sunday mornings, two Sunday school classes meet in both hours (9:15 and 10:45) in the Student Room (E121).



The purpose of Salem Student Ministry is to know and live God's word, grow together in Christ, and share Jesus with friends. One thing SSM stresses is that students are not just the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today.  In light of that, the desire is to see students involved in the life of the local church, serving and using their talents for the glory of God, and sharing their faith with their peers.  By the time a student graduates, the hope is that they have made a personal decision to follow Jesus and they are actively owning their faith by growing in God's word, serving in the church, and sharing Jesus with their peers.
