Hope Lutheran Student Ministry exists to draw middle school and high school students into a deeper level of interest in Christ as well as their commitment in Christ.  We do this by connecting students with loving and caring adults who engage them in relevant conversations about life and faith.  Our safe and engaging environments help to drive us forward into service projects, retreats, and evangelism as we figure out how to live out the conversation we’re having.
I would like to thank you for your support and encouragement.  Since I have joined Hope, I have seen your great passion and support for our youth.  Through your generous support we have be able to paint the youth lounge, excite the youth with events like TP dodge ball, trunk or treat, feed my starving children, pumpkin patch and best of all Bacon an’ Bible.
As we move forward, I again thank you for your support and would like to announce that student ministries are planning a Nerf night, Sunday night dinner, Thanksgiving dinner packing, and several other service projects.  We are grateful for your support and prayers and continue to rely on your backing both by your involvement and financial givings.  Stop by and see the updated youth lounge if you haven’t seen the new look.
Again, we thank you for your support of our student ministry program.
Ben Graham, Youth Leader

We are excited to introduce our new Youth Director, Ben Graham. Ben began his work life in the construction business, but a fateful mission trip convinced him that his true passion was working with youth. He wasted no time getting himself educated and engaged in youth related activities and now has over ten years of experience working with youth. His education includes a certificate in Christian Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Religion. He has experience with writing Christian curriculum for middle and high school youth, leading small and large youth groups, planning and taking youth on mission trips here and abroad, recruiting others to engage with youth and being an associate youth director. Ben is energetic, enthusiastic, spiritually motivated and truly dedicated to the spiritual and overall growth of everyone, especially youth. Ben and his wife, Heather have two daughters – one in middle school and one in high school. Although they have been living back in the US for about five years, they spent several years in Singapore. Ask them about impromptu trips, exotic foods and the people they encountered on their many travels while in southeast Asia.

We are excited to have Ben join us and we believe that his vision, his warmth and his energy will help to nurture our young people’s faith. Please be sure to welcome Ben and Heather to our HOPE Family.
