The mission of our vStudents ministry is to equip middle and high school students to be complete disciples of Jesus Christ by...

  • demonstrating God’s great love to them
  • connecting them to each other and to the greater church community
  • teaching them the 5 W’s of our church
  • and encouraging them to pursue God's will for their life

Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions about our student ministry….

when & where do vstudents meet?

We meet on the second Friday and fourth Saturday of each month from 6:30-9:00p.     

Second Friday: At the home of Craig & Holly Oliver located 

at 6801 Woodland Hills Drive in the 93312 zip code. 

Fourth Saturday: At the home of Denny & Jen Allen located at 11309 Bocelli Ave in the 93312 zip code. 

what will the students do when they gather?

They will have a short time of small group bible study, play games, watch movies and much more.  

since vstudents meet on friday & saturday evenings, what can my student do on sunday mornings at Vanguard? 

We encourage parents to either (A) bring their students with them to our main worship service, (B) have them serve on one of Sunday morning ministry teams or (C) some combination of (A) and (B).  There are plenty of opportunities for students to Work for Christ on Sunday mornings alongside a parent or another adult in a ministry that suits their interests, talents & gifts.
