DeepWater Student Ministry

At DeepWater we love the next generation and are excited to see middle and high school students connect to God and also connect with a group of people that will encourage them.  And have no doubt, we want to have lots of fun together!

6th-12th Graders are invited to join us on Wednesday's through out the school year and summer!

What to expect:

We would love to connect with your student!

  • Who?

    All 6th - 12th graders are invited to join us on Wednesdays! Currently, we combine middle and high school for the majority of our time together, but split them during our small group time.

  • Where/when?

    We meet at St. Mark's Lutheran Church on the Isle of Palms (300 Palm Blvd).

    We meet from 5:30 - 7:30pm every Wednesday night. Our schedule follows the public school calendar for breaks. 

  • What/why?

    Our time together is typically split into 3rds:

    - 1/3 is hanging out, playing outside, and eating dinner together.

    - 1/3 is playing a quick game and jumping into a bible based lesson together.

    -1/3 is time spent in small groups debriefing the message, sharing highs and lows, and praying for each other.

    We exist to be a place where students can belong, where they will learn the truth about Who God is and how they can love others!

Jo Giles - Student minister

Hey everyone! I’m Jo!

The Lord brought me to DeepWater in 2019 and it truly has been a gift to be able to pour into the next generation and see God do the work of changing their lives from the inside out - not to mention, it has been a TON of fun! 

As the lead for the Student Ministry, I hope to be able to provide your student with an environment where they can come and be a part of a stress free, drama free, fun atmosphere that allows them to build community with the students around them. I am also committed to ministering and sharing biblical foundations and truths with our students and I am excited about what God will continue to do through the students of the Isle of Palms and beyond!

Our volunteers also do an incredible job pouring into students each and every week!
