Preteen / Middle School

Welcome Pastor Bailey!

Please join us on Sunday, November 12th at 6pm in the Ed Gym as we welcome our new Intermediate and Middle School pastor, Bailey Medley! Bailey has been working as the youth pastor for Together Ministries in Thornville, OH since finishing her degree from MVNU in 2015. Bailey and her husband Mason are both excited to be a part of all God is doing at the Naz! We will gather together for a time of worship and spend some time getting to know Pastor Bailey and Mason! Dessert and drinks will be provided! All parents and students grades 5th-12th are welcome!

Our Philosophy

Preteen / Middle School Ministry is about designing experiences especially for students and all that is going on in their world. From the physical changes to the daily challenges these students face everyday, our ministry is geared to help them engage their culture, live out their faith, while engaging in the current culture around them.

What We have for Students

Small Groups

Wednesday Nights are designed to help every student go deeper in their faith.

We start with some large group fun in the Multi-Purpose Building that includes hanging out, games, and more! From there we break off into small groups. Our small groups are grade and gender-specific so that we can focus on the issues students face everyday and allow them to grapple with big and not so big questions at this stage in their journey.
