Student Ministry at Westport Church is a fun, safe place for Middle School and High School students on the west side of Portland to come and hang out together, build awesome friendships, learn about Jesus, study the Bible, and serve the community. We are blessed to have a dedicated group of Student Ministry leaders who love seeing students' lives changed by Jesus!

Ignite (Middle School)

-IGNITE leaders excited to meet you and introduce you to other students.

-Getting to know other students through organized games, activities and structured conversations.

On the first Friday of every month we host an outreach and community night called Afterburn.  This is a chance for students to spend extra time together hanging out, playing games and building friendships. RSVPs from parents are required for students to attend Afterburn. Month to month information on Afterburn is always included in our weekly email blast.

There are also extra IGNITE events throughout the year, things like scavenger hunts, laser tag, bon fires, winter retreat, summer camp, and mission trips. These opportunities foster spiritual development and lifelong friendships.

See you at IGNITE!

FUEL (High School)

Wednesdays 7:00-8:30pm

*Check our calendar for special student events.

The trajectory of youth groups, especially in the Pacific Northwest, is that the same old youth group plan isn’t working. And we agree. It is our goal at FUEL to provide consistency, flexibility and accountability. Groups of high school students meet with peers and adult mentors throughout the area on various nights and times. The aim of these groups is to live life together, discover passions and follow Jesus as we pursue them.

There are also big group meals and events throughout the year. Meals take place at different families’ houses and the events vary from urban adventure quests, to laser tag in the church building and bubble soccer. FUEL also takes a winter trip, and goes either to summer camp or on a mission trip every other year.

Club RC is also a big part of FUEL. Club RC is a kids club that takes place at Reedville Elementary for the kids in the community. It was developed and is overseen by students who are passionate about serving, sharing & loving and they do that through snacks, meals, games and lessons with the kids. The Club RC team meets every Monday night from 6-8pm at Reedville Elementary.

If you are or have a HS student interested in checking out our Club RC team or one of our HS groups email Sean at students [at] westportchurch [dot] org. He will help organize some connections and meeting points with the other HS students to find a good fit group.
