Deep Water Student Ministries

Deep Water Student Ministry (DWSM) serves the middle and high schoolers of West Hall Baptist Church. DWSM offers two main weekly meetings. Further, DWSM hosts and attends serveral other activities each year. The purpose of the ministry is to equip young believers with the tools, abilities, and knowledge that they need to complete the Great Commision, which is to make disciples of all nations. It's leaders also offer support for students during the ups and downs of their teenage years, dealing with school, peers, and relationships. Everything that is accomplished is through God working through His Holy Spirit in the lives of both the leaders and the students of His ministry.

Each Sunday morning, Deep Water Student Ministries (DWSM) meets together around 9:45 AM for a time of fellowship, breakfast, prayer, and Bible Study. For the time of fellowship, there are many amenities to enjoy. Included in that list are pool tables, air hockey tables, fooseball tables, Phase 10, UNO, SkipBo, seating areas for chilling, and so much more. The ladies of the church prepare food for the students each Sunday morning. A few minutes are spent praying over all of the needs of the group and church family. The Bible Study is out of the Xplore the Bible Series that Lifeway publishes. Currently, we are studying through the book of Psalms. As a bonus, all the age groups in the church are also studying the same material, on their level of course, so the whole family can discuss what they have learned together. 

Each Wednesday night, Deep Water Student Ministries (DWSM) meets together around 6:30 PM for a time of fun, dinner, prayer, and discipleship training. As described above, there are many amenities to enjoy. However, many nights the group may use the Fire Pit area and roast some marshmellows and enjoy s'more's. It is always an exciting time. There is something to eat each Wednesday Night. Though, most of the time, it is pizza! The refrigerator is kept stocked with Mountain Dews and Dr. Pepper's as well. Then the group enters into a time of discipleship training using Disciples Path.


Disciples Paths is a program created by Lifeway Christian Resources that breaksdown discipleship into teachable lessons. It includes prayer, reflection, scripture memory, scripture reading, Bible Study, Bible stories, life application, and so much more. Each Wednesday night, the group will work on improving theirselves in there level of the Path. During the week, students will work individually on certain aspects of the lesson. They will also meet with a Discipler Leader each week to keep them on the right track and support them through their journey. Don't worry about coming into a session behind! You can start at the beginning anytime! It is a study to help you succeed.
