Canaan Students

Canaan Students exists to connect middle and high school students to God, people, and purpose.

Clarity and Confidence

“My hope for every middle school student is that they would have clarity. Clarity that the Bible is one story leading to Jesus.  My hope for every high school student is for them to graduate with confidence to open the Scriptures and pursue God as they walk into college or a career.”

-Pastor Justin


Connection Group


The Student Connection Group meets on Sunday mornings before worship to cultivate a theological and biblical framework for viewing, thinking about, and living in the world. Our Connection Group utilizes multiple resources from RightNow Media to BibleProject to help engage students with the Scriptures.



CAST is our weekly gathering where students are invited to cast off their old lives and follow Jesus today and tomorrow. At CAST students encounter Biblical teaching, small groups, worship, and a time to build relationship and relax with fun and games.

Trivia Night

Trivia Night is our Student Ministry fundraiser for our summer mission projects. Every dollar raised at Trivia Night and the Silent Auction goes directly to our students and mission projects.

Our two projects this year are serving at Camp Barnabas and STL Summer Mission. Camp Barnabas is a summer camp for individuals with special needs or chronic illnesses along with their families. STL Summer Mission serves alongside three different churches plants here in St. Louis through a VBS at each church.
