Love • Walk • Thrive

Our mission is to LOVE students and their families while we WALK with students in their path to discipleship. These can be fun, confusing, challenging, and rewarding times and we want to be present for it all. Our ultimate goal is to create a safe environment for all students to THRIVE, knowing they belong and are welcomed, loved, and accepted by Jesus Christ.

Joe Vonderheide
Student Ministries Pastor

My Mission is to walk with students on their path of discipleship. When I’m not with students, I’m spending time with my wife and our two dogs, Molly and Harley. We enjoy hiking on Monte Sano and spending time with our families. My favorite sports team is the Cincinnati Bengals, Who-dey!
