Elevate is the student ministry at Countryside Christian Church, reaching 6th-12th grade students in the grater Salem-Keizer area. We are committed to helping students know and follow Jesus, striving to elevate our relationships towards Jesus as we learn more about Him through games, interactions, teaching, singing, and small groups.

Elevate primarily meets on


Sunday at 11:00 in the Student Center and

Wednesdays at 6:00pm in the Student Center.


We will also have special events throughout the year including retreats, camps, and fun events.
