Zeo Student Ministries is a place where we help students to become Christ centered and to completely find their identity and who they are in Christ; a place where students can devote themselves to honoring the Lord, reaching the lost, sharing the love of Christ with their peers, and making a positive impact for Christ in their schools. We also believe it is a priority to help our seniors make a smooth transition to young adult ministry so that they continue to stay grounded in the Lord and stay connected with others of like age and faith.
