What is J.A.M.?
J.A.M. activities are for middle school students in 7th and 8th grades. A typical gathering incorporates three things: Bible study, fellowship, and small groups. This ministry builds peer relationships and motivates students to develop their life-long relationship with Jesus Christ. J.A.M. events typically occur on Friday nights.

Our goal is for students to be:1. Aware of their identity as a redeemed Child of God;
2. Equipped to fully participate in the life of the community of faith.
Through the J.A.M. program, students will…

- Develop a positive self-image as creations of God;
- Establish a firm foundation in Christian basics;
- Expand ownership of their faith.
Parents of students in the J.A.M. program will become...
- Motivated to demonstrate commitment to serving God and ownership of faith through active engagement in student ministry;
- Eager participants, transforming their “fear of teens” into loving and meaningful relationships;
- Confident in their ability to engage their child in faith conversations.
Parent Volunteers in the J.A.M. program will…
