High School Student Ministry (SLM)

What is The SLM at VBF?

The Student Led Ministry is the High School Ministry at VBF. We are a team of people dedicated to the belief that we can enlist high school students to lead in their day to day lives. We are dedicated todiscipleship and understanding that each person in our church is designed to help bring all people to the real love of God. We don’t have a student led ministry; we are a student led ministry.
