Students are a dynamic and vital part of the Greystone community. Representing a number of area middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities, our youth and college-age students possess a wide-range of unique interests, gifts, and talents that enhance our life and ministry together as a church family. Through our student ministry, we strive to create a space for teens and young adults to learn and grow in their faith through worship, study, and open discussion; to build community with one another and with the larger church body through fun and meaningful fellowship experiences; and to join alongside God by engaging in ministry and the sharing of God’s love within the church, the greater Raleigh community, and throughout the world.
If you would like further information, please feel free to contact Allan Smith, Associate Minister, Students, at (919) 847-1333 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For up-to-date information on regularly scheduled programming, special events and upcoming opportunities, see the church calendar.
