7th and 8th grade students who have committed their lives to Christ and want to take the next step in their faith are able to be baptized by a JHM pastor. There is not an official “Baptism class” for students interested in getting baptized. However, we require that each student meet with a staff member ahead of time to discuss what baptism is all about.

Impact is JHM’s initiative for student service. It’s not a program or a student leadership team, but a collection of service opportunities for junior highers— at church, in the community, and around the world. We believe God has given each and every student something special to offer to God’s Kingdom, and Impact exists to help them use their unique skills, experiences, and passions to serve people in need. Impact is divided into two parts: Serve In and Serve Out.

These include: -Sharing your testimony -Being a leader in Saddleback Kids  –Greeting at weekend services  –Playing in the student band -Weekend service set-up and tear-down -Running video and sound at the weekend services -Being a leader in Saddleback Kids-
