The Uprising SM (Students)

March 20 launched something big. Real Big! The Uprising Student Ministry has begun to have weekly gatherings at Wiley Church every Monday Night.

This first glimpse of what is to come has been nothing short than amazing. You might ask, “What can I (or my student 7th-12th grader) expect at Monday Night Uprising?” We are glad you asked!
Doors open at 6:30pm. Food and Relationship times are the first components of this service. There are also fully staffed adult volunteers working the outside security, food and game stations, and more. Every area has been well thought out and prayed over, ready to receive you (your students).

Next, you will notice right away you have found a judgment free zone to come and connect with other believers and grow in your relationship with Christ. It is more than compelling.

Youth Pastor Tanner Chitwood leads the service at 7pm with a time of fun with giveaways! (Who doesn’t like free stuff, right?) Quickly, the room moves into a time of music, including a full live band with current praise and worship music. The students gather at the front of the room and can be seen worshiping from simply closing their eyes as they sing, to the more active songs that cause them to move!
After a time of Giving, Pastor Tanner takes the students on a journey through the Scripture. He uses his God-given talent to make something that was written long ago applicable to your life today. Using humor, passion and deep study, you will feel the power of God’s Spirit during this time.

Finally, the altars are open for students to receive salvation, rededicate their lives to Christ, pray with each other, and place their cares or fears they have into the hands of Jesus. Chains are broken, lives are set free, and hope is restored. Power is received as Christ fills the room with His Holy Spirit!

Students connect as the service comes to a close, and parents begin arriving to pick them up at 8:30.

This could be the very thing you have been looking for. You have been praying for! For further information, email Pastor Tanner at

We offer open enrollment and allow you to select the group you feel most comfortable with.
