First of all, Elevate Student Ministries is a part of East Ellijay Baptist Church. Elevate was started in the summer of 2005 when our church felt the need to do something drastic to reach teens with the life-changing message of Jesus. It's still a toddler! We started with huge dreams of seeing young people meet Jesus, fall in love with Him, and choose to follow Him with their lives. So far, God has done that in the lives of countless teenagers.
Elevate has grown into a special community of teens and adults (affectionately called Lifeguards) who are following Jesus together. We're by no means perfect; but we've found Jesus, who loved us enough to die in our place before we even knew Him. We've decided that there's no better life than living God's way. We believe if you're willing to give Elevate a try, you'll find some new and lasting friendships. We're like family around here. Plus, you'll discover how crazy awesome it is to follow Jesus! So, go for it! Drop in and visit us at any of our programs or events this week!
