Elevate is the Family Ministry of Ben Davis Christian Church and is broken down into separate groups by grade level. Elevate 56 is for preteens (grades 5th & 6th) and Elevate 78 is for Jr. High students (7th & 8th grade). We realize the importance of unique programming for fifth through eighth grade students and have created programming just for them.



On the first Friday of each month we gather to set the tone for the month ahead. We will meet at BDCC for food, fun, games, outings and fellowship.

 Friday at 6:30 p.m.
Elevate Big Room and other destinations


Each Sunday morning, students will meet in grade level Connection Groups at 9:30 a.m. In these environments, students will study a relevant topic from a Biblical perspective and share.

ELEVATE 56 & ELEVATE 78 Worship is at 11:00 a.m. in the Activity Center. Students gather for large group story and worship and then divide into groups by grade with 1-2 Team Leaders per group. During small group, students discuss teaching, talk about their week, and have awesome Team Leaders who invest time and Godly wisdom in them.
