Introducing our new leader for Mars Hill’s next generation

Dear Mars Hill Church,

Our student population is growing like crazy. Almost all of our 14 locations have at least one high school nearby. Thousands of kids will age out of Mars Hill Kids ministry in the next five years, and more and more families are starting to attend.  

The mission of our church is to make disciples and to plant churches. As we accomplish this work God has given us, we want our young people be involved in meaningful ways. Having the right leader to direct this effort is critical. We want Mars Hill Students to grow in their own faiths and to involve them in reaching out to family members, friends, and classmates with the love of Jesus. We also want our young people to have big opportunities to grow as leaders in the church.

Meet the Ramseys

For all of these reasons and more, I’m excited to introduce Adam Ramsey, our new director of the Mars Hill Students ministry. Adam joins us from Australia, where he was a youth pastor and then a campus pastor at Elevation Church in Queensland, where he also founded a cross-denominational movement of youth and young adults.

He has followed Mars Hill Church for many years now, and comes highly recommended from some of the best student ministry leaders in the country. Adam and his wife, Kristina, are excited to join our church family this month, along with their three young kids (one girl and two boys).

What’s next for Mars Hill Students

Adam’s role at Mars Hill will be to build up our student ministry across the entire church. He’ll lead weekly regional events in the Seattle area, and provide direction for all of our locations.

Adam’s responsibility is big vision, teaching, and overall planning for student ministry. Locally, most of our churches will still have a student ministry leader (staff or volunteer) who will serve as a consistent, relational presence for the congregation. These local leads will work closely with Adam as one large team. With this joint effort, we hope to see a lot of middle school and high school students meet Jesus and grow in the gospel. In Adam’s own words:

One of my greatest joys is seeing young people encounter the life-transforming power of the gospel, that not only saves them, but sends them on God’s glorious mission into their world. More than just a student ministry at Mars Hill Church . . . I see a student movement that is equipping young men and women to be disciples who make disciples, to spread Jesus’ fame to their generation!

From the outset, Adam will be based out of Mars Hill Sammamish, which is situated less than a mile from three large high schools east of Seattle. He’ll be leading weekly events on the Eastside, in south Seattle, and in north Seattle. Once we start to get some momentum, we fully plan on replicating the effort for the benefit of all our churches, using video, large events, and local leadership participation.

Please pray!

We’re expecting the Ramseys’ arrival toward the end of October. Please pray for safe travels and the future of Mars Hill Students. We are so grateful that Adam and his family have decided to uproot and join us for a full-scale charge to bring the good news of Jesus to the next generation.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids. To learn more about each of these, click the links below.

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
