Student Ministry

The STU
Manna Students Logo

Manna Students is designed for Middle and High School Youth. We have a charge that is simply communicated with three words -- Ready? Set. Go! Our desire is to see students READY to encounter God, SET to be equipped with others, and GO be the example to the world.

We Do This By:

  • Creating a sense of community whereby students can build strong relationships through our Student Groups and other student gatherings.
  • Helping students identify their gifts and talents and empowering them to
    operate in those gifts in a manner that glorifies God.
  • Developing student leaders by equipping them with tools to engage their culture through their faith, to bring about life change.

Student Groups:

Student Groups create an environment for new and current students to engage in small group settings and connect into the local church. Our Student Groups are formatted to create a mid-size environment comfortable for new students to connect with other students. As with any small group, the ultimate goal of our Student Groups is to get students to take their next step in their relationship with Jesus.

Each site in the Fayetteville/Ft. Bragg region has it's own Student Group that meets each week centered around growing in faith, and through fellowship. In addition to the site groups, there are also a variety of other Student Groups available to our students. You can find times and locations of these groups by visiting the Small Groups page and click on the Students icon.

The STU:

All of this communicates The Stu is students. It is creative young minds collaborating, connecting, and conversing to grow in community together. It is different ages, races, personality types, interest, talents, gifts, grades, student groups, backgrounds, schools, and sites together in one big metaphoric “pot,” that is The Stu. The first Tuesday of every month, at the Cliffdale Site, students from all over Fayetteville/Ft.Bragg region, come together under one roof for an evening designed to challenge and assist students to grow in their relationship with God, as well as build life-giving relationships with their fellow peers.

RUSH Campus Ministries:

RUSH Campus Ministries is the outreach division of Student Ministries at Manna Church. RUSH is made up of clubs (small groups) that meet in schools, lead by students. We are equipping students to lead and be the influence and positive change their school and community needs. Faith + Action = Change.
