What is Fuse & Merge?

Fuse and Merge are each part of our Grace Church Student Ministries. Fuse is our middle school ministry (6th-8th grade) and Merge is our high school ministry (9th-12th). Our Student Ministries programs are offered at every Grace Church campus.

These ministries are loaded with worship music, friends, small groups, and messages aimed at your students as they navigate their everyday lives. Check out the campus nearest you for specific calendars, resources, and small group curriculum. Have questions before you attend? Let us know!

Student Life Groups Get connected

We value students having a blast, worshiping God, and connecting with one another in small group experiences where students can have fun and learn from friends and adult leaders about what it means to follow Christ.

Students Resources & FAQs

Middle school & high school ministries are currently meeting during their regularly scheduled times. However, if you're unable to join us... that's ok! Here are some resources to stay connected.

Every week, there are fun elements during our gatherings, guaranteed. Plus students will enjoy a time of worship through songs and interactive experiences along, a relevant message, and spend time with their small groups (in-person or via Zoom) to dive deeper into the message and share life together. 

We can't wait to see you this weekend! Once you arrive, we'll greet you with a gift and have you give us some more information (or you can fill out the pre-registration form before you get here and skip that part). From there, we'll make sure you get introduced to other students and leaders to feel more at home.

Be A Great Leader Leader Resources

With over 28 years of ministry experience, we’ve learned a lot about what works—and what doesn’t. And, we want to share that with you, our valued leaders. Thank you for living into your You Were Made For More calling and leading our students in Merge and/or Fuse. Your impact will go farther than you could ever imagine and we are so grateful for you. Check out these helpful resources to help you grown in relationship with our students and with Christ.  

If you are 18 or older, YES!

If you are 17 or younger, no.

We do extra procedures in place to ensure our leaders are following all protocols and requirements. We have extensive interviews with our leaders and check in often to ensure the best safety and leadership possible. Leaders are never allowed to be alone with a student at any time. 

Welcome Team

The Welcome Team wins when they make students feel known, cared for, and liked. Our welcome team has an important role: you are the FIRST PEOPLE students meet when they arrive & the LAST PEOPLE they see before they leave.

Host Team

Hosts win when they make students excited to be at Fuse or Merge. It’s the host’s job to serve as an emotional guide for the service. The host should be welcoming, encouraging, and excited to be a part of Fuse/Merge.

Teaching Team

Teachers win when they have shared the message in a clear, concise, and compelling way. Teachers “set the table” for Small Group Leaders to facilitate discussion with their small groups. They receive a Big Idea, Scripture, and Goal statement from staff to develop a clear, concise, and compelling message that points to Jesus.

Service Director

The Service Director wins when they unify the program team to create a transformative experience for students. The Service Director wins when they have unified & set up the program team, volunteer leaders, and staff during weekly programming.

Fuse High School Apprentice Team

High School Apprentices win when they model a growing and vibrant relationship with Jesus. Fuse High School Apprentices help middle school students see what it looks like to have a dynamic, intimate relationship with Jesus. They practice spiritual disciplines (Bible Study, prayer, fellowship) for themselves and are the closest, most relatable model for students to look to.

Small Group Leaders

Small Group Leaders win when they build trust, build community, and build faith in students’ lives. Small Group Leaders are the glue between a student and their relationship with Jesus. They consistently show up in the lives of students and point them to their next step with Jesus.

Coaching Team

Coaches win when they engage, encourage, and equip Small Group Leaders to disciple students. Coaches provide care for Small Group Leaders as well as feedback, so they can disciple students. 

Student Ministry volunteers (that's you!) are critical to Grace's mission of making disciples. And, we want to ensure you have the training you need to thrive in the area you are serving within Student Ministries. This leader handbook will provide you with the knowledge and help you need to serve well while clearly instilling a vision for the heart of Student Ministries. Plus, we've also included helpful resources for parents and students, a ministry calendar, and more!
