Element is the youth movement of Vive Church. We gather together every Sunday night from 6pm-7:30pm. Doors open at 5:30. Every week, we strive to create a teen-oriented environment that inspires students to see themselves as part of God's bigger purpose on earth. Beyond that, our heart is mentor students through small groups, serve teams, and projects that inspire students to begin living the life they were born to live.
From the moment you step on campus, you can expect to experience an atmosphere of Belonging and an environment of community. You'll have a chance to grab a drink from our cafe and chill with friends before Element starts. During Element, you'll get to participate in a group game, live worship, and a practical Bible teaching geared towards the issues teens are facing. Best of all, we break out into age/gender specific small groups in order to walk through the implications of God's active voice in 2017 and beyond.
We believe that a church's influence comes 2nd to the family's influence. At Element Youth, we desire to partner with parents in raising teens to know and embrace the life they were born to live. We love to keep parents engaged in what we are doing, as well as offer resources to parents to empower families towards life-giving habits.
We believe that a relationship with God is most effectively incited through relationships with people. Our staff and team members are dedicated to modeling Christ and influencing teens towards a biblical lifestyle. Our small group leaders are highly effective in purposefully engaging students in profound and meaningful discussions revolving around life, God, and scripture. Beyond the Sunday night environment, our team is committed to developing essential mentoring bonds with each student, hopefully extending well beyond highschool years.

The definition of WOKE is being in the state of awareness to a reality beyond what is typically accepted by society.
During the month of February, we examined the purpose and power of the living scripture, as well as the nature of God's relentless voice.
Words are powerful. They can make your day or ruin it Words can make friends or create enemies. On a global level, words can start a revolution or bring peace. Now, think about how much more powerful God’s words are. Simply by speaking He caused the world to be created along with everything in it— mountains, oceans, thunderstorms, planets, the sun. His words caused nations to rise and fall, and people who were dead to come back to life. God’s words are the most powerful force in our entire world, but if we’re honest…most of us don’t think of them that way. We hear “God’s Word” or “the Bible” and think about an old dusty book, something complicated, outdated, or even boring. But what if it was never meant to be that way? What if we’re missing out by seeing it as simply a history book or something to study? As we take a closer look at God’s Word, we may be surprised at what we find. God is inviting us to hold, read, and experience the same Word that created everything we see. It’s more than a book. It’s better than a story. It’s alive.
During the month of January, we discussed the dynamics of what it means to count yourself in with the family of God.
“Are you in?” It’s a question we all answer over and over again. When there’s a party, when our coach says it’s time for tryouts, when we’re offered a summer job, when our friends go to the movies, or when someone invites us to church, we all have the chance to decide if we’re “in” or “out” for that particular activity. Sometimes the answer is an easy, “Count me in!” Other times it’s tougher. There are good reasons on both sides. Some of Jesus’ friends were faced with the same decision of whether they were “in” or “out.” They had good reasons to join the Jesus movement, but they also had some pretty compelling reasons to step out—things like doubt, guilt, pride, and the fear of what they might miss. As we get to know these sometimes famous and devoted followers, we’ll talk about the decision they faced, why they could have walked away, and what led them to say, “I’m in.”
