We exist to expose students to God’s love, to connect them with other Christians,
to equip them to grow in their faith, to help them discover their ministry, and to exalt God with their life.
High School Ministry
At Cascade Hills Church, our student ministries are thriving. For your high schooler, we provide two fantastic ways for them to get involved.
TheHills High School Night - Wednesdays
Every Wednesday from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at the main sanctuary, our high school students come together for a high-energy youth service for all 9th – 12th graders. These services combine music, an inspiring word from the Bible, games, and much more. Pizza ($1 a slice) and drinks ($1) are available for purchase as well.
LIFEgroups - Every Weekend
On Saturdays & Sundays, we’ll come together for our high school LIFEgroup. Our LIFEgroup is an interactive bible study designed to get students talking, discovering the truths in God’s word, and applying these truths in their personal lives. We’ll meet at the following times and locations.
- Saturdays at 5:00 PM – Room 305 / 306 (3rd Floor)
- Sundays at 9:30 AM – Room 305 / 306 (3rd Floor)
Our Current Series
Is there anything more complicated than family? Whether students are dealing with changes, fights, fractures, or more, navigating family matters is no easy feat for them. And for many high schoolers, the temptation is to give up. To check out. To say, “in a few years (or months), I’ll be out of here anyway.” But we know family doesn’t stop affecting us when we leave high school. For the rest of our lives, family matters. And maybe that’s why Scripture has so much to say about it! In this series, we’ll talk about life with every family from picture perfect to totally fractured. And as we do, students will discover no matter what your family looks like…family matters.
“I will lift my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.”
High School Team
Pastor Adam Churchwell
Adam and his wife Jennifer have been members of Cascade Hills Church since 1996. He served as a volunteer in Real Kids for ten years. In May 2009, he began serving in the High School Ministry and felt like God was calling him into full-time ministry. In March of 2010, he began leading the college ministry at Cascade Hills. Then in August, he accepted the call as High School Pastor. Adam brings great enthusiasm and dedication to the students at Cascade Hills each day
Jennifer serves as an assistant to our High School Ministry Pastor (Adam) as well as the Girls’ Ministry Director. She loves spending time with the high school girls and helping them to develop their personal walks with Christ. Adam and Jennifer have three incredible kids, Noah, Nina, and Emma.
In the student ministry, we believe that the parent plays a vital role in their child’s spiritual growth just as much as their physical, and emotional development. But we also understand that the secular world is full of obstacles that might be counter-intuitive to these growth goals.
That’s why we’ve put together a few resources that we think will help. We want to keep parents informed on these issues as well as provide some guidance and talking points when discussing them with your high schoolers.

Become A Contributor
We believe there is nothing more important than God’s work, even more so when it comes to our youth. So consider contributing to a cause that matters. God’s not looking for perfection; He’s looking for your heart. If you have a heart of gratitude for all that God has done for you and you want to serve him and express that gratitude, we want to give you the opportunity.
