As we do this, we seek to be:

  • Relational: We invest and engage in cultivating authentic relationships among students, leaders, and God.
  • Courageous: We teach students to boldly share their faith through words and actions that impact the world.
  • Grace-filled: We welcome and value each student as God does.
  • Loving: We compassionately lead students, selflessly serving and caring.

David Benson

Director of Student Ministries
I believe God has called me to HMUMC to encourage, equip and empower students, leaders and their families in their relationship with Jesus. I believe God has called me to join a team of Christ followers, to connect and grow a generation of young people to Jesus.

Join Our Student Ministry Leader Team

When it comes to student ministry, one of the most important elements are the adult volunteers who serve in the ministry. From Sunday school and small groups on Wednesday evenings to special events and retreat chaperones, the adults who volunteer to pour their lives into students make a huge difference. We’re looking for authentic adults who are willing to listen, have fun, ask questions, and show up consistently.
