We look to empower the emerging generation to be an influence for Jesus in every sphere of life. Our students believe they were not called to simply survive the world, but to change it for Jesus. Our student ministries operate under the Emerge brand, as Emerge Youth and Emerge Campus, catering for high-school and university students respectively.
Emerge Youth is the high school ministry of Clayton Church. We are more than programs and events! We exist to provide high school students with experiences and opportunities to discover who Jesus really is, and to cultivate and encourage students to become godly influencers and leaders – no matter how young they are! At Emerge Youth, we are a community of high school students, led by an amazing team of leaders, who inspire us to be bold in our faith in the one we call Saviour, Jesus. We are committed to discipleship and creating an atmosphere that truly sets up the youth of today to be the best God has made them to be – in their schools, their families and their communities!
There is always a buzz at Emerge Youth every Friday night during the school term. We love coming together and having fun! Our Friday corporate nights can be like a mixed bag of lollies! We run fun games, worship and explore ideas, values and faith from the gems found in the Bible – all experienced within the context of the corporate life of Emerge Youth.
Emerge Youth values each individual and we understand that relationships deepen in a smaller group setting. Life Groups nights alternate with Corporate Nights, connecting and discipling high school students. We also make it a point that every leader at Emerge Youth is discipled as well, as they commit to the students of Emerge Youth.
We are the tertiary student ministry of Clayton Church. Meeting on Friday nights, Emerge Campus is all about students discovering and deepening their relationship with Jesus, sharing Him with others, and becoming effective and influential leaders in their tertiary life – now and beyond their tertiary years.
We alternate between home-based life groups and large corporate meetings on Friday nights, learning about Jesus, worshipping Him through music, connecting with other students and having heaps of fun through a variety of activities, camps and events. We believe in making a difference in our world as Jesus did – by sharing with people everywhere about Him, loving them unconditionally and teaching them to hear and obey the word of God.
Like Emerge Youth, we have a team of dedicated student leaders who love life and their time in uni, and also mentors/coaches who are mature and established in their current seasons of life, whether working, married or being parents. Leaders and coaches aim to build close relationships with students, encouraging them to know and experience the life Jesus wants for them.
Whether you’re an international student looking for a place to call home, a Christian looking for a tertiary student community, or you’ve never heard of Jesus before, Emerge Campus is the perfect place for you to find meaning in life, authentic community, and begin to deepen your spiritual journey with Jesus.
