Your Life is Your Mission

This is a phrase you’ll hear often in our student ministry.

In a nutshell, it means that Jesus has us on a mission with him every minute of every day. That mission is to be like him by connecting with our Father in heaven, having healthy relationships and loving and serving people around us. It means that our life – who we are, how we live, the way we love those around us – is the mission.

Questions about Student Ministries at RiverTree Massillon?


Due to COVID-19, we are not offering Sunday programming for students or kids ministry.

Our phased Regathering Plan is in process and we hope to be able to regather for Sunday Fuse soon.

For students in grades 5-8 / Every Sunday / 10:30AM

We will worship together (feel free to sit with family or in the student section in the auditorium) and then after worship, we’ll go downstairs to the FUSE room.


For students grades 5-8 (as of fall 2020/2021)

Due to COVID-19, we are not gathering together. We’re working hard to stay connected in the midst of COVD-19. Don’t forget to connect on our NRG Facebook page for the most up-to-date info! 

This mid-week gathering is where students and adult leaders form relationships through games, worship, messages, and conversations! Connect with us on Facebook and feel free to contact Ben Eberly with questions.


For students grades 9-12 (as of fall 2020/2021)

Due to COVID-19, we are not gathering together. With the pandemic, student ministry looks a bit different than before. We’re just as committed to discipleship, leadership and fun…probaly more than ever as we find creative ways to connect.

We provide a safe environment that allows students to build relationships by playing exciting games, eating together, and getting to know their fellow students and their leaders. We want these relationships to go beyond just Wednesday gatherings.


We want our students to encounter the good news of Jesus. We make this happen through messages, singing songs, prayer and time spent in small group discussion. We want to know Jesus, what He is showing us and how we can begin applying it to our lives.


We want to help give students tangible ways to live out what they are learning. We do this through serving the community around our church and by providing opportunities for students to bring friends so they too can experience God’s love in our community.


We need you!

If you have a heart for teens, we’d love to talk to you about helping in Student Ministries. It’s an investment in the next generation.

Are you a Follower of Jesus?

We can’t introduce someone to Jesus if we don’t know Him first. It does not matter to us how long you have followed Jesus, just so you have started the journey with Him and seek to live in a way that pleases Him.

Are you willing to serve?

Leaders are servants. Jesus said he did not come to be served but to serve.

Do you desire to see God use you?

Leaders lead by how they live. Are you willing to let God use you to impact teens?
