::: ABIDE :::

(Middle School)

::: Our Vision :::

Welcome to Abide! Middle school ministry is a place where students and staff alike strive to live up to our title. It is our desire to learn how to abide more deeply in Jesus; take a look at John 15:1-11. Our vision is to learn love and obedience to God through forms of worship, discipleship, service, evangelism, and fellowship. This is a process and must begin with abiding in Jesus. Apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15:5).

    Bodie has been serving for three years. Bodie has spent his childhood at Granada. After graduating from High School Bodie decided to serve as apart of our Abide ministry. When Bodie isn't spending his free time working on his epic treehouse, Bodie is spending time reliving his middle school years through playing games with students. In addition to playing games Bodie's desire is for them to have a deeper faith in Jesus. Bodie currently works in maintenance at Heights Christian. Bodie is currently serving as our 6th and 7th grade boys small group leader.

    Kim asked to jump on board and serve in Abide in the fall. She is currently in her first year and is our second member of "the mom squad".  She works part time as an instructional aide at Leffingwell Elementary. In her free time Kim enjoys reading and being outside with her family. Some of her favorite past times include gardening, discovering new parks and watching her kids' sports/activities. Kim has a desire to walk with young women and see them grow in the Lord. Kim is currently our 8th grade girls small group leader.

  • Malisa Yee

    Malisa is the newest member of our ministry staff, and final member of our "mom squad". Malisa is a homeschooling mom of three children. She has mostly served with the children and pre-school ministries up until recently and has jumped in mid-year to help with the 6th grade girls. She desires to see young people flourish in their walk with the Lord by encouraging them and coming alongside them.
