Welcome to Middle School Ministry – H2O

Hi I’m Nick Sybouts, the Vineyard Middle School Pastor. Our Middle School Student Ministry is created to help students and their families as they encounter the realities of life during the Middle School years.  We understand that these years are filled with a lot of changes, questions, and insecurities.  We also understand and believe that these are some of the best years of a student’s life.  Our goal is to create a safe place at all of our campuses where students have the freedom to explore all that is happening through the Christian lens and find the support and encouragement they need to be their best self.  We aim to provide key relationships (both peer and mentor), sound Biblical advice, and have A LOT of fun and excitement along the way.

I have had the pleasure of working with students at some level for over 10 years, and have a deep love for the Middle School age.  My wife Annah, my son Kairon (3 years old), and I love going on grand adventures and spending quality family time together.  In my spare time I love watching sports, binge watching Netflix, or reading a great book.  I hope to get the chance to get to know you better.  Always feel free to email or give me a call!

Awana Trek (Grades 6-8)

Mondays, August 28-April 30 | 6:30-8 p.m. | North Campus

By allowing students to dive deep into the Scriptures they are able to answer three important questions for themselves. Who am I?, Why am I here? and Who’s with me? AWANA TREK provides middle school students the way to own their faith and discover what they actually believe.
