Junior and Senior high school students need a place where they are free to ask the hard questions, get encouragement from their peers, have fun and feel genuinely motivated by the gospel to live as a follower of Christ. South Union Christian Church Student Ministry strives to create an atmosphere that empowers students to reach other students by living out the truth of Gods Word.

In July of 2018, our Student Minister of the past four years, Eli Mathers, announced his resignation. God showed himself in a big way to Eli and his wife, Natalie, and made it clear that he had even bigger plans for them in Jacksonville, Florida.  There are not enough words to explain how much we will miss Eli & Natalie. They both poured their heart and soul into our Student Ministry and did a superb job at it. While we are sad to see them go, we are happy for their new adventure and will always support and love them! They will always be family to us and we look forward to having them come back for a visit in the future.  While we began praying and searching for Eli's replacement, our Associate Minister, Jake Purtlebaugh, will be the interim Student Minister.  Jake has numerous years of experience being a Student/Youth Minster, most recently, his previous position before coming to South Union.  We ask for your prayers that God will make it clear who he wants to fulfill this role.  Until then, don't worry, our Student Ministry will still be going strong!!
