Who we are
Welcome to Calvary Los Gatos Student Ministries! We are a community of students and leaders that are committed to Loving God, Loving Others, and Serving his World. As a church we recognize that Middle School and High School can often be difficult to navigate. Our hope is that students would experience an authentic community that ultimately points them to following Jesus.

Student Release Form
At Calvary Church our Family Ministries team has developed something we call milestones which we define as major life events such as Child Dedications, Baptisms, Go Teams, and Graduations. The goal of the specific Student Ministry milestones are to prepare students for adulthood.
Our Middle School Milestone is 8th Grade Confirmation. In Confirmation we spend 8 weeks teaching through the Biblical topics found in the Apostles’ Creed. During this milestone, each student takes personal ownership of their faith by studying Scripture and writing their own statement about what they believe.
The milestones your student will walk through in High School are Chalktalks, Projects, and of course, High School Graduation.
Chalktalks are for our Junior class. These are Q&A nights that are held throughout the school year to help students navigate difficult situations and conversations. We go through various topics like how to deal with conflict and making your faith your own.
Projects are for our Senior class. These are designed be more hands on and experiential. We cover various topics from finding a new church in college to how to cook and do laundry on your own.
Our hope in this is to prepare them for what is next after Student Ministries.
Our Volunteer staff is part of what makes Student Ministries so special. For a volunteer to have an impact on a student's life we believe it takes consistency and time. We ask our volunteers to commit to staying with the same class of students through the entirety of either Middle School or High School. We believe relational ministry is the best way for students to understand who Jesus is. Our staff is committed to teaching God’s word and being a friend to every student that walks through our doors.
