As the Philadelphia Student Ministry, we are “Pro-life” in everything we say or do. We want our students to understand that true life can only be obtained and enjoyed through the grace of Jesus Christ. Do you have life?
Student life at Philadelphia Horseshoe Drive is important to us because these students have the opportunity to live their whole lives Fighting the Good Fight of Faith. We are committed to our teenagers and to providing them with a meaningful atmosphere to learn and apply God’s standards and truths. We want to offer many opportunities for our young people to come together and build long-lasting Christian friendships through Sunday School, Wednesday night Upper Room, Student Leadership University, fun get-togethers, and yearly events like retreats, mission trips and camps.
FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH, LAY HOLD ON ETERNAL LIFE, TO WHICH YOU WERE ALSO CALLED AND HAVE CONFESSED THE GOOD CONFESSION IN THE PRESENCE OF MANY WITNESSES. - 1 Timothy 6:12
Wednesday nights are where our students really get to hang out together and enjoy themselves. The students can take advantage of the game room while the music is being played in the background. Some students just enjoy talking before the service starts. The Wednesday night events usually begin with powerful worship led by our praise and worship band. After the worship, we break off into groups consisting of Jr. High and Sr. High. After breaking off, we play a crazy game that opens us up and gets us laughing. Following the game, our students then participate in a small Student Accountability Group and also listen to the night’s devotion.
Our most important week of the year is Summer Camp week. All Philadelphia students make plans to go to Summer Camp. We offer a Jr. High Camp and a Sr. High Camp. Our student ministry has many opportunities for students to raise money through fundraisers throughout the year. Students will also receive 15% ($50) off their camp price by just being involved in a student ministry like R-1 Drum Line, Student Faith, or Praise Band.
Among other events, Disciple Now Weekend and YEC (The Youth Evangelism Conference) are yearly retreats that our students really enjoy every year.
