We are the Student Ministries of the Church of the Nazarene — Harrisonburg, Esperanza Viva, and East Rockingham.
We are one church — three locations — one mission: to be transformed by God to bring hope to others though Christ. Student Ministries at the Church of the Nazarene exists as a safe space for 6th-12th grade students to be in a fun & unified community, to grow in their faith, to be empowered to lead, and to be faithful witnesses of the Kingdom as well was equipping adult volunteers to do the work of ministry.

As we take on a new mission and method in 2022, we took on a whole new look & name. About our logo: Although simple and weak, in the hands of a skilled creator, paper is intentionally constructed and folded on edges to glide through the air. Something that is simple is made beautiful and is given a purpose in the hands of its creator. God molds and shapes us into the people we have been called to be through Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are designed to move towards God. We are designed to move towards those around us. We are designed to move towards the future that God is already building in our midst. We are designed for movement as we anticipate at the edge of heaven. We are a movement of students transformed by God to bring hope to others through Christ in the Shenandoah Valley.
