High School

At Johnson Ferry, we are dedicated to helping teenagers live their faith twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. That’s why, in addition to our regular Sunday Worship, we offer a variety of ways for our High School students to meet Jesus for the first time and grow in their faith.


Gravity meets every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. for large group teaching and small group discussion in Student Center South.  Students sit around tables in a small group setting with an adult leader to discuss the message or topic of the day.  If you are new and need help connecting with a small group, give us a call at the student offices, or just show up on Sunday morning at the welcome desk and one of our friendly volunteers will help you connect!


LifeGroups are designed to CONNECT with every student, from every school, GROW them in their faith, and equip them to REACH out to their friends. They meet three Wednesday nights every month at 7 p.m. during the school year at different homes around the community.  You can find a LifeGroup near you by clicking HERE! 


The Mix meets every Wednesday from 7 - 8:15 p.m. in Student Center South for worship and teaching.  This is a relaxed ennvironment with live music, engaging media, and Bible teaching.

CORE Discipleship Stages

What is it?

This is an opportunity to grow and deepen your faith in Christ. Just as strengthening your core is important in a solid workout routine, your spiritual CORE should be strengthened and developed. CORE is designed to be a personal plan of discipleship that you complete on your own schedule. It is a self-guided process that will be completed in stages, taking as long as you determine. Ultimately, the goal of CORE is to assist you in taking responsibility for your own spiritual growth. In order to move through the stages, you will need to choose a “checkpoint” person that will help guide you and pray for you. A good suggestion for this person is your Sunday small group leader or maybe a parent.

Mission Trips

Every year several hundred high school students and adults choose to spend their Spring Break on a mission trip. Students in grades 9-11 travel to the Dominican Republic and Seniors travel to Peru, to use various creative methods to share Jesus.  Even during summer break, students will travel around the world to serve others on mission trips. Past trips include Kenya, Ukraine, Jamaica, and Nicaragua. God has used these trips to touch the lives of many, and those who go are changed forever by their experiences on mission with God. For more information about the Spring Break trips visit:  JFBCDominican.com or JFBCPeru.com
