Merge is designed to help students discover who Jesus is, who they are, and how they fit into God’s story. Students engage in weekly worship, interactive lessons, and prayer in a safe, fun, and welcoming environment. Our Merge director, Ethan Burson, designs his lessons based on what Pastor Jason is teaching in the main service every week. Above all, it is the primary objective of Merge to see students of this age group follow the two greatest commandments: love God, and love other people.

What this means for the ministry:
- We merge with God through a relationship with Jesus
"But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him." - 1 Cor. 6:17
- We merge with each other to be the body of Christ
"For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another." - Romans 12:4-5
