Student ministry

SCCC's student ministry was designed by Youth Ministry Architects of Nashville, Tennessee for fun, relational, volunteer-driven ministry to young people that deepens their spiritual life and relationship with the church for the long term.


Our Youth Ministry Team is led by our Student Pastor, Marlene Urban-Funk, an experienced minister of youth and missions with a background in Christian Education and a Master's of Divinity. Marlene is committed to empowering volunteers and families to engage students in lifelong spiritual growth.
