Ankeny Free Students is the student ministry for 6th-12th grade students at Ankeny Free Church - Wednesday Nights 6pm-7:30pm

The middle and high school years are some of the most formative times in a student's life. We want the Student Ministries of Ankeny Free Church to be a safe place where our students can discover a real and life changing relationship with Jesus Christ, challenging them to accept God’s purpose for their lives, equipping them to grow in spiritual discernment as they face life’s challenges, and sending them to reach the lost with the gospel of Christ.


Ankeny Free Students gather on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30 PM in the Worship Center. All students are welcomed to a safe and friendly space. Sunday nights consist of a time of corporate worship, Bible-based and relevant teaching, and community groups with some food and fun thrown in!

We believe that the Bible is God's word and is the ultimate source of life and truth. Each and every week students can expect to hear a message founded on the Bible, that is gospel centered and that is perfectly relevant and applicable to their life as a middle or high school student.

We believe life is better when it lived in community! Each week our students gather in their community groups with their adult community group leaders to talk about life, to walk through the community group questions, to laugh and pray together. We divide community groups up by gender and grade so students feel comfortable being with other students like them. Get connected to a community group!
