Vertex Student Ministries (6-12th grade)

Welcome to West Houston!
Thanks for visiting our Vertex Student Ministry web page.

I can't tell you how excited we are to see what God has in store for our Student Ministry! Our dream at West Houston is to draw from the best elements we find in various approaches to student ministry and create our own, unique approach - one best suited to our context, with greatest support to our families as we work cooperatively toward the spiritual formation of our young people. We take seriously our call to be disciples making disciples. We know this process works best when families nurture students with full support of their church family, working in strategic cooperation to cultivate disciples of emerging generations.

Our commitment is to partner with families to make this dream a reality. Youth ministry can be done better. Youth ministry should be done better. Please join with us as we evolve into something more.
