the place for students to find and live their faith.
At Student Impact, students grades 6-12 find and live out their faith. We build relationships that build disciples through small group connections, fun events, meaningful retreats, and mission trips.
What We Do
The Student Impact experience begins in the main worship service. Students worship together or with their families and then step out before the message begins to hear a talk relevant to students and to discuss it with friends. Student Impact meets during all worship services.
At Student Impact Groups, students find and learn how to live their faith. SI Groups include a time for students to hang out, connect with their group to discuss a Bible passage, and worship together. Student Impact groups meet at Parkway Victoria and at Parkway Port Lavaca at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays.
Student Impact events occur throughout the year to help students connect, grow, serve and take their next step. Annual events include: Middle School Camp, High School Missions Camp, and the NEXT conference.
STUDENT IMPACT GROUPS
Find Your Place. Find Your People
Student Impact groups are the place where students find and live their faith. Students connect in age and gender-based groups to share a meal, learn from the Bible, participate in a meaningful discussion and prayer. Plus, they have fun along the way.
Throughout the school year, we will be hosting three experiences we call "The Weekend" for specific student age groups (6-7th, 8-9th & 10-12th). As part of the weekend, students will have lots of fun, engage in great worship, and learn Biblical teaching that focuses on issues and opportunities specific to their lives.

Time, Moments, & Milestones
Time, Milestones, & Moments is all about parents intentionally developing their students spiritually through how they spend their time, how they take advantage of moments, and how they mark milestones through their child’s life.
Invest your time to create intentional time built into the rhythm of your family’s life for the purpose of thinking about, talking about, and living out your faith. Create your plan.
Next Steps for students
Believe in Jesus
Your first journey with Jesus is to believe in Him for life. The Bible says that we are sinners in need of a Savior and that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of the world. When we believe in Him, God forgives our sins, gives us a new life, and promises life forever with Him in heaven. Request a New Believer's Kit.
After believing, your next step is to go public with your faith through baptism. When believers are baptized, they demonstrate the new life they have in Jesus. We encourage everyone who has believed in Jesus to show it by getting baptized. We baptize the last Sunday of every month at each location. RSVP for Baptism.
Find a Place to Serve
Finding your place to serve is a key step for students to grow as Christ followers. Students can serve Jesus through the church in a variety of ways both behind the scenes and with people.
Love and Follow Jesus
As students grow and serve, we encourage them to continue to connect in a small group along with personal Bible reading. We also hope that students will worship and obey Jesus in such a way that they own their faith and commit to live for Jesus beyond High School.
