“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10

Rick Lee
Student Minister
Willow Ridge Student Ministry, for grades 6 through 12, exists to lead students to love God and love others. We do this in three ways: LIFT, LIVE, LOVE.

We gather from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Sunday nights. We provide relevant worship, biblical teaching, games as well as dinner.


It is our goal that students live in authentic biblical community with one another. In order to ensure this, we provide family groups for our students. These groups are led by college students, as well as adults, and meet on Sunday evenings as well as throughout the week in homes in Lexington. All of our leaders are trained and have had a background check.


We desire to see our students love Jesus in a way that changes the world. It is our goal to raise up students that see their world in which they live as a mission field. We also want to create opportunities for our students to be missionaries both locally and globally. We do this by providing Go Days as well as at least one mission trip per year.


One of our goals as a student ministry is to connect relationally with your student. We do this with the goal of using that relationship to introduce students to the Gospel. This summer we will begin Sunday Funday on Sunday, June 11. We will be doing all sorts of things for the remainder of the summer with your students. We will have meals, play putt-putt and so much more. Please check out the following calendar of events this summer. You may drop your students off at the church and pick them up from the church if that works best, or you may take them directly to the location of the event. Our hope is to make getting your student to and from each event as easy as possible. Please, feel free to contact Rick Lee with any questions. Thanks so much for partnering with us to see the Gospel transform your student’s life.
