Student Ministry

The Purpose of Coram Deo Students:

To see students grow in their faith by discovering the truths of God's Word and His call to make disciples of all nations

Who We Are

Coram Deo Students is a place for junior high (6th–8th grade) and high school (9th–12th grade) students to come and awaken their passion for Christ while joining with other students who are seeking Him too. It’s our desire to grow together in relationship with Jesus, and live out our faith in a way that genuinely impacts those around us.

Coram Deo Students is...

  • Christ-centered
  • A ministry for students—not simply to students
  • Committed to growing life-long, devoted disciples of Jesus Christ
  • All about the family—we exist to equip and assist parents as they raise their students to have authentic faith

Short-Term Mission Trips

From local to global, we are passionate about providing opportunities for students to glimpse what it means to take the Gospel to others outside the four walls of our church. QC Plunge—our junior high missions trip—focuses on local outreach within the Quad Cities. Our high school missions trips are more globally focused and offer students an opportunity to see what reaching the unreached looks like around the globe. Trips typically take place during the summer months.
