Student Ministry Philosophies

Impact Student Ministries is focused on helping students come to know Jesus Christ in a personal relationship and leading them to intensely pursue after God's own heart.  We desire that each student will impact their homes, schools, communities and world for Christ's glory.  It is our prayer to see each student at Sherwood Baptist Church become Great Commandment and Great Commission Christians. 


"The Impact Student Ministry supports Sherwood’s mission, vision and purpose by encouraging students and student workers to INVITE nonbelievers to experience a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to INTERACT with a church family, to IGNITE their lives in worship to the Lord, to IMPRINT God's Word on their hearts and in their minds, and to IMPACT the world for Christ in their homes, schools, community, state, nation, and in other countries."
Below is a list of goals we have for each student. Our hope is that every student would understand and embrace each of these as soon as possible, laying a protective and strong spiritual foundation before entering college.
1. To Receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ
2. Publicly Confess Christ and Obey His Command to be Baptized
3. Understand How to Have a Personal Quiet Time
4. Genuinely Loves God and Loves People
5. Honor and Obey His/Her Parents
6. Have a Vision for Being Used by God in a Big Way 
7. Know How to Share Personal Faith and Witness to Someone
8. Remains Faithful to Christ through College and Adulthood
9. Surrender to God the 5 Giants of Life: Gossip, Pride, Hypocrisy, Immorality, 
10. Make Wise Decisions
