High School

"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." — 1 Timothy 4:12

Calvary High School Ministry is for students in grades 9–12. We build friendships, grow in our relationships with the Lord, study His Word, share the love of Christ and our testimonies with others, and serve Him together.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events. Connect and check out our latest pics on Facebook.
