Istrouma Student Ministry is a gathering of middle and high school students designed to help students CONNECT to God and others, GROW in their relationship with God, SERVE at Istrouma, and GO to the city of Baton Rouge and the world.

Istrouma Students meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15am in the Student Building, on a variety of nights during the week for COLLIDE & Home Groups, and throughout the year at events like camps and Disciple Now weekend.

Sunday Mornings

Table Groups

On Sunday mornings, Table Groups meet together and interact with God's Word. Each group consists of 6-12 students and 1-2 adult/college-age leaders. Every Table Group leader is a known member of Istrouma that loves Jesus and loves students! ALL of our leaders are individuals that we trust and want to invest in the lives of our students. Table Groups gather at 9:15am in the Student Ministry Building.


Middle School COLLIDE - due to disaster relief efforts, COLLIDE will not meet for the fall semester.

Middle School students meet for COLLIDE on Wednesday nights during the school year. Each week students will connect for games, food, and Bible Study led by our ISM staff & some of our high school students.  All 6th-8th grade students are invited.  6:30pm-8:00pm in the Student Building.  Contact us for more information. 


High School Home Groups - return date to be announced.

High School Home Groups follow a school semester schedule and meet in homes around the area. Walk through scripture with a leader and be challenged to dig deeper!  Home groups are based on gender and grade level.  To connect with a home group, contact us.
