The Current is our small group for college-aged persons, whether you're in college, taking a gap year, or working. High school seniors are also welcome! We meet several times a month, on Thursdays, from 7-9pm, in various homes. Contact our Student Ministry Pastor, Jonathan Der, at jder@pathwaysbc.org for more information.

Hey Seniors! Ready For Life Without A High School?

Want Some Help Figuring It All Out?

Have you ever heard the phrase, 'what got you here, won't get you there'?

Life post-high school brings a whole new set of challenges and skills to learn, especially when you're trying to honor Jesus in the middle of it. We want to make sure you're set-up to succeed at college, or the work force, or a gap year, or whatever you're planning after high school days are over, and help you continue to make your relationship with Jesus the highest priority. So, we're offering, the 'Next Level' a monthly interactive learning experience & hang out night to help you be ready to face the challenges that come with living for Jesus in years 18-23.

ALL Next Level EVENTS: 6:30-8:30pm with a hang out time afterwards!

Different locations each month! Bring money for a meal or a snack!

Jonathan Der

Student Ministry Pastor

Rev. Jonathan Der was born and raised in St. Louis MO, and after college, proceeded to move all around the country to help next generations find and follow Jesus. He comes to Pathways with 20+ years of student ministry experience in all sorts of settings, eager to see how God will use him next! Hopefully that will involve lots of meals with all our different families and cultures, learning about and auditioning for our bell choir, and leading our student ministries towards even more dynamic growth, all with great laughter and joy.
