516 Student Ministry exists to challenge students to know Jesus and make Jesus known. The Attic and 516 Student Ministry is intended to be a place where any student in any walk of life can come to feel known and loved, while being encouraged to grow closer to Jesus. 516 comes from Matthew 5:16, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven." We strive to train and equip students to become leaders that own their faith and shine their light for Jesus in the world.
