Elevate is the student ministry at Journey Church. We meet every Wednesday night at 6:30pm. 

Each week, 6th-12th grade students gather for worship, a message, and to break into small groups (Tribes) that are grade and gender specific. We believe that tribes are vital for the spiritual growth of a student, and our students look forward to tribes each week.





Our number one goal at Elevate is to connect every student in a healthy small group, which we call TRIBES.  The reason this is a big deal to us is that we know that people need people. That's how God designed us. We also know that spiritual growth happens best in the context of relationships, and it doesn't happen on accident. When we connect students in a healthy small group, they have people who care about them and a place to belong. Not only that, but they have a built-in support system of people who they can share their story with, keep them accountable, help them process their doubts, and encourage them as they take their next step in their walk with Christ.

If you are not currently connected in a healthy TRIBE, we can fix that! Simply contact us and we will get you connected with a TRIBE this week!



Once a month, we do an outreach service where we encourage students to invite their friends to enjoy a powerful worship service, a relevant and challenging teaching, and most importantly for the gospel to be shared with every student and a chance for them to respond to that gospel message.

Elevate Nights are usually paired with an “afterparty” for all of the students to enjoy after the service for fellowship and fun!



Once a month, we gather up all of our tribes (small groups) and we have a night of fun, friendly competition to determine which tribe will take home the gold and have the bragging rights.

Tribe Wars vary every month, so be sure to keep up with events such as tribe wars on our instagram @elevateyouthcentral.
