Junior High (JHM)

Junior High | Ocean Hills

Our JHM Weekend Experience provides a place where our students can come to learn and experience how to HONOR God with their life. They learn to do this through example, experience, and relationship. They learn to do this in worship through music, teaching, serving, and fun with the JHM community. We work hard to create a space where our students can feel free to be themselves, wrestle with the way of life that Jesus is calling them into, and to respond to Him in a way that is honoring and authentic. If you are in junior high or know someone in junior high, then we would love to have you at our JHM weekend services.

If you have questions about any of the following ministries, contact Rob Fernandez:

Connecting Christians together, Into an authentic community, to become Disciples of Jesus.

If you are looking to grow into a deeper relationship with God, add depth to your walk with Christ, find Christian friends, get connected, have fun – then Life Groups are for you!

Our JHM Life Groups exist to give students a place to connect with other Christians and to grow deeply as authentic followers of Jesus. LifeGroups meet at the Ocean Hills campus and is assigned a leader who is committed to teach, encourage, and provide vision, direction, and support to each student within the group. JHM Life Groups work hard to ensure that each student can ask questions, challenge their peers, and connect together in community, to have tangible, noticeable growth.

We want every student to have a person who knows them and a place to belong, so we invest in our partnership with parents.

We love our parents, You are, and always will be, the greatest influence in the life of your teenager. Research proves it time and again your voice as a parent is the loudest in your students life. That is why now is the greatest opportunity for you to make a forever impact in the life of your teenager. It is also a great opportunity for us at Mariners Church Student Ministries to partner with you and cheer you on in the process. For that reason, we are launching some ways for parents to be involved, to be engaged and to have a clear voice in our ministries. Jesus meant for us to do ministry together, so lets do it!

In Student Ministries, we have selected great books for you to keep learning as a parent of a teenager. You can find these books online or you can request them at our bookstore.

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity
by Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof

When parents work in tandem with the faith community to raise their children, they increase their parenting capacity exponentially.

Most parents have so many demands on their time that they can’t be the kind of parent they desire to be. They need to know the Orange Factor: Two combined influences will make a greater impact on kids than just two influences. And it’s true. Parents who partner with the faith community are the best way to bring the next generation into the family of God-and keep them there.

Playing for Keeps / Losing Your Marbles
by Reggie Joiner, Kristen Ivy, Elizabeth Hansen

There are some things adults just can’t do for kids.

You can’t force a toddler to love broccoli. You can’t make a teenager not date someone. And you can’t make a kid love God. At some point it just starts to break down.

Two books in one, Playing for Keeps / Losing Your Marbles is for parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers). In Playing for Keeps, you will discover 6 things every kid needs over time and 18 practical ideas so you can make what really matters matter more. Losing Your Marbles, the “flipside” of Playing for Keeps, is a short story that brings these 6 ideas to life.
