ANCHOR STUDENT MINISTRIES
Our vision is to see students’ lives transformed by the power of the gospel.
Hilton Head Presbyterian Church is committed to family based youth ministry. Our desire is to come alongside and assist parents in the Christian nurture and growth of their children. We believe that God works through his covenant promises to families and our goal is to encourage and help parents in the spiritual growth of their children. We seek to challenge students to truly own their own faith and accordingly engage the world around them.
Our staff and volunteers carry out this vision by discipling students through contact ministry, weekly programming, and retreats.
If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Interim Youth Director Jason Suddeth.
