We believe every kid needs a person, in addition to their parents, another adult who loves them, loves Jesus, and is willing to show up consistently in their lives. At RC Students, we are passionate about connecting teens with that leader, encouraging them to discover Jesus for themselves and showing them how to live out a relationship with him. We use fun, games, worship, short messages and a small group environment all to engage students with Jesus on their level.

As a multiethnic movement of God, we also want to be intentional about becoming multigenerational. We believe our students  play a vital role, not just in the church of the future, but in our church today. So we encourage students to worship and serve alongside adults regularly as part of our Sunday services to help them develop a lasting faith of their own.

As a gospel-centered church we have a heart for the untold & unconvinced, people who either haven’t heard, or have yet to be convinced of the incredible news of our rescue and adoption by God through Jesus. 

We  elevate relationships and connect students to adult leaders to go deeper and build authentic relationships. Safety is our priority at Relentless Church and all of our leaders are background checked, interviewed and trained before working with any students.
