Student Ministries

This year FEC Student Ministries will have a strong focus on building Biblical community, teaching our students how to engage scripture, and giving our students the opportunity to live out the gospel. We believe that through these three components we will strive to accomplish our mission; To glorify Jesus Christ and magnify His gospel in the lives of students until He comes.
