Connecting teens to Christ.

At Colonial, we care about students. It is our deep desire to see them experience connection to Christ! That’s why we work hard to create opportunities for them to build relationships and live out the Gospel. This allows them to know, experience, and serve Jesus. Often we have students interact in smaller groups by grade and gender. And so you know, we consider Middle School, 6th-8th grade and High School, 9th-12th grades. We can't wait to meet your student(s)!

Now recruiting for Summer Staff 2024

Our Summer Staff program has existed as a place for college students to live out the Gospel, answer the great commission, and follow God's lead to advance the Kingdom in the greater Kansas City area since 1971. Colonial Summer Staffers are college-aged students who are dedicated to the Kingdom of God and have a heart to serve within student ministry. We hire between 12-15 people each year for a 10-week paid summer internship. Room and board are included. We are looking for college students who feel called to minister to our youth, be poured into daily, and live in biblical community together.

A high-energy night where you can jump onto the court, join in some ping-pong, kick back on a couch and hang out, meet a new friend, and learn about Jesus. We provide smaller group interactions and let students share what is important to them and ask questions among friends. Friends are always welcome to join in the fun and discussion.
