Student Ministry

Student Ministry

We are a community of young people who long for a revival in DC.

Our mission is to be a place where students learn to love, think, and act more like Jesus.

We take our responsibility seriously to care for kids and do everything in our power to keep them safe, supported, and pointed to Jesus.

When does District Youth meet?

Youth in grades 6 to 12 are invited to join us for food, community, and worship every Sunday night. District Youth begins at 6:00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm.

Where do I go if I take the Metro?

We are only a 5-minute walk from the Brookland Metro Station on the red line if you use the Metro.

Do I need to register my child?

All are welcome! We will have a kiosk for the youth to check in on their own.

How are District Youth gatherings structured?

When youth arrive at our gatherings, we will have food and games. Then we gather to worship with song and prayer, hear a short sermon, and finally split into Life Groups. There will be separate Life Groups for junior high boys, junior high girls, high school boys, and high school girls. The youth will be dismissed at 8:00 pm.

Where does District Youth Meet?

District Youth is held at The Ministry Center (1225 Otis St NE, Washington, DC 20017). Though the gathering is just for youth, if you need to park nearby, there is some parking in the back and the street in front.

There are many universities right here in the heart of our nation’s capital! We see this as a great opportunity to help disciple students towards Christ in some of their most formative years of life.

When does District College meet?

We meet every Monday night from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm for dinner, discussion, and community. The Last Monday of every month we meet at the same time for a night of worship and prayer.

Where does District College Meet?

The first three Mondays of the month we meet in the basement of the Fairmont House. Contact for more information.

On the last Monday of every month, we will meet at The Ministry Center, 1225 Otis St NE.

Where do I go if I take the Metro?

If you use the Metro, the Fairmont house is a 15 minute walk from the Columbia Heights metro. The Ministry Center is a 5 minute walk from the Brookland metro.

How is District College structured?

District College is for any undergraduate college student in the DMV area. If you have graduated from college and are looking to get plugged into The District Church, we recommend you join one of our many small groups!
