“Grove Students desires to see STUDENTS and FAMILIES following JESUS as we ENCOUNTER God in worship, DISCOVER life in community, and EXPERIENCE the adventure in service to transform generations and nations.Parents are an ESSENTIAL part of the equation as we seek to develop passionate followers of Jesus Christ. Our heart is that Grove Students would build up, strengthen, and encourage parents as they live out God’s call to raise and disciple their students. No one has more time with a student than their parents, and we believe that God has placed a high value on that relationship!”
