High School Youth Ministries – Springfield, MO

We aim to move students out to start a MOVEMENT for God!

“In Him we live and move and have our being.”  Acts 17:28 

What will be your MOVE in the MOVEMENT?



Youth 2015

Sunday Morning Elective 9:30 AM

Middle School & High School students meet in the Loft at The Springs for community, food, and Bible study.

Wednesday Night Discipleship Groups

The MOVEMENT “D-Groups” are gender-specific and consist of 8-10 students and two adult leaders.  They meet at 6:45 – 8:00 PM at the church.  On a typical Wednesday night they will begin with a fun ice breaker and continue into discussion to build relationships, support, and accountability.  The first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm the MS and HS will meet together. Contact Tom Semmelbeck for more information about these groups.




Students love our retreats more than anything else we do! They provide the best opportunity for relational and spiritual growth in our ministry. By getting away from the normal demands of life, students are able to sense and respond more to God’s Truth. We offer at least three retreats a year:

  • Fall Back to School Retreat
  • Spring Retreat: Dare 2 Share, in St. Louis, MO
  • Summer Retreat


As a ministry that takes seriously the mission of Jesus, we provide multiple opportunities for our students to join Him on mission. Local opportunities include serving at Bridges for Youth, doing landscape work at local high schools, and actively sharing our faith with the lost. We also aim to provide one out-of-state or cross-cultural missions opportunity each year in the summer.
