DC Students

The Student ministry of Discovery Church exists to connect students to a community of peers in grades 6-12. We invest relationally in students to disciple them towards a deeper relationship with Christ and to live a life that reflects their beliefs.

Calling a generation to encounter God authentically together.

DC Students is our ministry designed for Middle and High School students at this exciting and challenging time in their lives. Through purposeful programming, intentional relationships, and a whole lot of fun, our mission is to see students become fully devoted disciples of Jesus.

Welcome to the DC Students family! Please fill out the form and let us know a little about yourself. 



Join us at our weekly Midweek program on Wednesdays | 6:30-8:30pm, where you can experience worship, games, a message, and small groups specifically designed for students. Small Groups are gender and grade-specific, where students will be introduced to an adult who will intentionally disciple them. Midweek provides an engaging worship experience for students and a place to strengthen their faith. Our goal is that every student who attends would build lasting relationships where they feel safe to talk about life’s real topics, grow in their relationship with God, and engage in a safe fun environment.

Sunday Morning

Alafaya | 9 & 11am
Sand Lake | 11am

During our Sunday Morning services, any student in grades 6-8 is welcome to join us for a middle school-focused message. We provide teaching from the Bible that will affect the way they live every day. Our hope is that every student will experience God’s presence, hear and understand God’s Word, and feel welcomed by God’s people. We also give students a chance to serve on Sunday Mornings in worship, tech, café, greeting, and our awesome Kids ministry.
