Every summer has a story - yours starts at Parkview! Register for MOVE today!

High School Students

High School Ministry 

High School Ministry at Parkview is ministry by high schoolers for high schoolers. Whether a freshman or a senior, high schoolers from the region find friendship and faith development at Parkview.

With weekly discussion groups in homes (thoroughly screened and background checked), our Bible studies feel more like discussion with friends over coffee or Cokes. Our regular large group nights focus on growing faith through worship, serving, and outreach. And our high schoolers are involved in designing every aspect of what we do.

High School Small Groups

High School small groups meet at pre-screened homes in the Parkview area.

If you are interested in joining a small group this winter/spring, please fill out the registration form below.
