Jr. High Meetings

Jr. High ministries hosts several different types of meetings during the week they range from smaller "cell groups" and "home churches" based on gender, grade and school districts, to our large Blowout meeting held every other Friday. A brief description of each meeting is below....

Cell groups and Home Churches
These are a great place for Jr. High students to grow spiritually, make great friendships, and have tons of fun! Our smaller "cell group" meeting consists of same-sex and grade students. Our "home church" consists of co-ed and 6-8th grade students. Most of our groups meet every Sunday evening. There are typically 2-6 adult volunteers who lead these cell groups who are all active members in Xenos and background checked. If you are interested in connecting your child to a cell group in their area, please email Liz Kifer at kifere@xenos.org

Jam, & Wam
Amp, Jam, & Wam are very similar meetings; just held at different locations. These meetings provide a fun, safe place for students to go during adult Central Teachings. Students arrive and get to play games before settling in for a shorter Bible teaching. Snacks and activities follow!

  • Jam meets during the 10:00am & 5:30pm Central Teachings at Main Campus (1340 Community Park Dr.) Meets in our youth building, Building X (1290 Community Park Dr.) You can drop your student off before the teaching starts, and students will walk back from X to the Cafe and Auditorium after the teaching is done.
  • Wam meets during the 10:00 Central Teaching at the Warehouse (600 E. Oakland Park, Columbus, OH, 43214). Meets in the gym in the parking structure next to the Warehouse. Ask at the welcome booth if you need directions!

Blowout is by far our LARGEST meeting; we typically have over 60 students in attendance. Blowout is every other Friday from 7:00-9:30pm at Building X. We have large games that go on at every meeting as well as awesome bible teachings. Check out our calendar page to see when the next one is!
