Junior High Ministry

Welcome to the Jr. High School Ministry at Calvary Chapel Bakersfield. Our youth ministry is known as Missio Dei, which means Mission of God. Our teachings, our worship, our prayer times, our events, our missions opportunities, and our camps all work to remind each of our students that they have been commissioned by the Lord for a specific purpose. That purpose may manifest itself in different ways from person to person and time to time, but the end goal remains the same: God's mission for us is to share Jesus with a lost and dying world (Matthew 28:18-20).

Our teaching style is line-on-line, verse-by-verse, though occasionally we take time for topical teachings and discuss a particular concept in the Bible or examine a current issue of great cultural importance (sexuality, racism, persecution, bullying, etc). We want our students to know that they can come to church to find answers to the difficult questions in life. We want our students to see that following God's Word leads to an abundant, joy-filled (though often difficult) life. We want our students to find the hope that we have found in serving the One True King.
We offer several weekly Bible studies and small group lessons specifically for youth, worship practice for those who wish to use their musical gifts in service to the Lord, a weekly night of fellowship and fun with a free meal, as well as events, conferences, and camps throughout the year to help students grow in Jesus. We also take a few nights out of the year to challenge students to a Student v. Leader kickball game... so far, students have never won. :-)

Upcoming Events:

    • Winter Camp - February 10th-12th at Camp AREV. The cost is $140 per student.
    • Connect Group - Come together for a night of fun centered around Chirst. Connect Group is held on the 3rd Saturday of every month. No cost.

These are just a few of the many events that will be available to Jr. High students over the summer months. Our hope is that you will join us for as much as you can, learn and grow as much as you can, and that the Holy Spirit will transform your life as you dedicate yourself to Him.
