"Having thus a fond affection for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the Gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us."

—1 Thessalonians 2:8


The vision of the STUDENTS at The Austin Stone is to cultivate a community where students learn to exalt the name of Jesus in our city, nation and world while equipping families for discipleship.


STUDENTS at The Austin Stone seeks to contextualize the ministry and mission of The Austin Stone Community Church in the lives of students from 6th grade to 12th grade. Toward that end, the Students Ministry will seek to: Worship Christ, Equip students with the Gospel, Build Community that allows them to be known and cared for, and to Make Disciples.


Our Sunday gatherings are a time where our students get to connect with the Lord, our Volunteer Leaders, and one another. Every Sunday has its own unique dynamics, but a majority of the time you’re going to get a combination of hilarious games/skits, authentic worship, and challenging teaching – which often leads to vibrant discussion.


STUDENTS at The Austin Stone desires a ministry that is both DEEP & WIDE. We desire to grow wide through our Sunday gatherings, campus events, and central events. We also are going to go deep through our Discipleship Communities (DCOMMs for short) that includes biblical training, accountability, friendship, and mentorship from our dedicated Volunteer Leaders. DCOMMs are age and gender specific with 6 to 10 students who are lead by 2 Volunteer Leaders. They meet throughout the week, in different locations, and at different times.

Contact your STUDENTS Campus Director to learn more information about a DCOMM that might be a good fit for your child(ren).
