SHIFT

Middle & High School  //  Grades 6-12


Shift Student Ministry is our group for teenagers to build strong relationships with God, adult leaders, and other teens.


WEDNESDAYS

Each Wednesday, Shift meets in the Youth Center complete with a Game Room and Café, making it an ideal place for teens to hang out and make friends. Service begins at 7PM in the Youth Chapel with student-led worship, a message crafted to challenge teens to live a godly life, and opportunities to pray about what God is speaking to them. With fun events and adult leaders who are eager to invest into teen's lives, Shift is a place where any teenager can feel comfortable and safe. 

What To Expect --

Each week Middle School students, grades 6th - 8th, and High School students, grades 9th - 12th, will gather together in our youth chapel for a time of praise and worship. After a time of worship and announcements we will dismiss the Middle School students to have their own bible study in the E-classrooms, located just down the hall from our youth chapel. This bible study will be the same material we cover with the High School Students but will be done on an age appropriate level for our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. They will also enjoy a time of games and small group interaction each week.

 
 

 

Shift Game Room and Café open each Wednesday night 6:15-6:50PM and after Service until 9PM.

ANNUAL EVENTS

 

Winter Retreat

February // An exclusive event for Shift students, Winter Retreat is designed for intense discipleship, prayer, and a whole lot of fun at a campground about 1 hours away. Unlike Summer Camp and Youth Convention, Winter Retreat focuses on giving Shift students the chance to break into small groups and nurture their relationship with God and each other. Fun aspects of the weekend include sledding, a toboggan run, ice skating, broom ball hockey, and gym activities including basketball and volleyball.


Summer Camp at Spencer Lake

July & August // Located on the shores of Spencer Lake outside of Waupaca, WI, hundreds of teens from Wisconsin and Northern Michigan gather for, "The best week of your life." During the day, teens can play team games (basketball, volleyball, and soccer to name a few), Frisbee golf, miniature golf, tube down a river, swim at the lake, and so much more. At night, all the teens gather for a powerful service filled with worship and teaching from some of the nation's best communicators to youth. Many teens say these are some of the most significant services in their lives. Shift attends Summer Camp two different weeks, one for High School students and one for Middle School students.

High School Camp - July 15 -19

Middle School Camp - July 29-Aug 2


Fall Youth Convention // October 25-27

This is a high-energy weekend jam-packed with teens from all across Wisconsin and Northern Michigan. Students gather for four powerful services filled with worship, concerts, powerful challenges, and a dynamic speaker.

LEADERSHIP TEAMS

 

Student Leaders


Student Leaders are teens who want to do more than just attend Shift services. With opportunities to serve as a greeter, be a part of the worship team, host in the visitor room, tackle service projects, or serve elsewhere, Student Leaders get the opportunity to impact the lives of teens around them. Making the move to become a Shift Student Leader is as simple as filling out an application and connecting with the Student Leader Coordinator, Stephanie Sanders.

 

Adult Leaders


Investing into a teenager's life is an honor and privilege. Shift Adult Leaders get the opportunity to build relationships with teenagers, hold responsibility within Shift services, and make a difference in our community. If you'd like to get involved, here are the 3 easy steps to become a Shift Adult Leader:

 

1) Be a member at Oak Creek Assembly of God.

2) Submit an application and pass a background screening. 

3) Schedule an appointment with Pastor Steve to evaluate if Shift is a place for you.
