To be effective in our ministry to students at Gulf Cove UMC, it is first our goal to exemplify Christ’s love to our students and then extend that love to the community around us.
It is the vision of the student ministries at Gulf Cove UMC to offer strong Christian examples of unhindered love and encouragement for the kids and teens within our church and within our community. Through creative Bible lessons it is our hope to not only educate students in sound biblical doctrine, but to also equip them to deal with life struggles, peer pressure, family stress, etc. in a Christ-like manner. It is our vision to extend that example beyond the classroom as we build relationship with students – through intentional contact and fellowship – encouraging and equipping them to take the faith learned and extend it outward in their own lives.

"If I have a hope, it's that God sat over the dark of nothing and wrote you and me, specifically, into the story, and put us in with the sunset and the rainstorm as though to say, "Enjoy your place in my story. The beauty of it means you matter...'" - Donald Miller
