First Naples Student Ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to partner with families to raise up the next generation of disciple-makers, church planters, missionaries, and world-changers who will reach Naples to the nations!

Student Camp 2024

Weekend Small Groups

Weekend Small Groups

Sundays at 10:00am, we gather together for Small Group study in the Student Center.

During these times, students will split up by grade and will have the opportunity to connect with each other, and be lead through discussion by adult leaders. These discussions give students a chance to dive deeper into topics specific to them, build relationships with each other, and ask any questions they have.

There are no student groups during the 8:30 or 11:30 hours. We encourage students to attend a worship service with their family at one of these times!



On Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm, our Middle School ministry meets on campus at the Student Center.

6th-8th grade meets together for worship, games, small groups, and biblical teaching.

The Student Cafe opens at 6:00pm as well as The Lawn, which is behind the Student Center and includes volleyball, gaga pits, and more fun!

Our High School ministry is currently meeting in home groups! You can find a list of home groups below.

Volunteer with Us

We need YOU! We are always in need of volunteers to make Student Ministry happen. Some of our biggest needs are for Small Group Leaders for Midweek and Weekends.

If you want to get involved, but cannot commit on a weekly basis, Student Weekend, Summer Camp, and MSMayhem Nights are some of the yearly events that we need armies of help with.

We would love to partner with you in ministry, click below to let us know you’re interested in serving at camp or year round!
