Student Ministry

Who We Are

Elevate is the Student Ministry of Ben Davis Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.

What We Do

A Safe Place for Students

Middle School Students

Sunday at 9:30 & 11 am

An hour-long worship service for middle school students from fifth to eighth grade. Hilarious games, awesome music, and a challenge to embrace faith all come together and point students to own their faith. After worship ends, middle school students break into small groups for conversation. These groups are safe places for students to make friends and fall in love with God’s Word for life.

High School Students

Sunday at 6 pm

A weekly, two-hour event for high school students. Experiential worship and an authentic message help students connect to God in more meaningful ways. Our staff and volunteers guide ninth through twelfth-grade students as they navigate the challenging journey from teenager to adult. Our goal is to prepare young men and young women for a life-long adventure of following Christ.
