School Ministry

School Ministry begins in the classroom. Not a typical 20-minute daily Bible study, but a values‐based curriculum that is “Christ‐First” and woven into everything St. Marcus School does.

The opportunities are endless to share the love of Jesus with students, friends and family.  It starts in the classroom and branches out. The St. Marcus School Ministry team reaches out to all families, focusing on those that are new to St. Marcus.  Every family is contacted, a relationship is built and families are invited and encouraged to join Bible studies or worship opportunities. The team spiritually trains staff to extend the reach of the ministry beyond the classroom.  In essence, to be the “eyes and ears of Jesus.  These efforts also branch out to the community and specifically to area high schools where St. Marcus alumni attend.     

Opportunities to share the ministry of St. Marcus with school families, their friends and the surrounding community is tremendous. The school ministry team works with school families focusing on “whole person health” by providing resources and a safe, trusting place for families in spiritual and physical need. 

The school ministry team exists to disciple school families for Christ now and for eternity.
