At Cultivate, we are focused on providing an environment for students, (6th - 12th grade) to pursue God. Cultivate students will experience a fun and safe place to ask questions, to share concerns, to seek truth and to find purpose.

We meet on Wednesday evenings at Hickory Ridge, starting at 6:30pm. At 7:00pm we have a time of prayer and worship followed by a relevant message from the Bible. Then we break into small groups for a time of discussion. Students are picked up at 8:30pm.

See you soon!

My name is Aaron Sterling. My wife Angie and I are honored to lead the student ministry here at Hickory Ridge. We appreciate and value you! You are the most important mentor your student could ever have.

We know the trust you have placed in us to speak into your students lives, and we take it seriously. Our goal is build relationships which support your role as parents. We will answer their questions by pointing them first to the Bible, and then to you! We also realize there may be times your student feels more comfortable talking with us. When that happens, please know, we will always enourage them to talk to you as well.
