At Elevate Life Church we do not have a student ministry - we are a student ministry.
Students who call Elevate Life Church home are asked to get involved in everything we do.
They're plugged into e/groups. They volunteer. They give their resources. They're not
waiting to make an impact. Students are making a difference right now.
Element Students are on the front lines leading in our church and we wouldn't have it
any other way. We believe this present generation of students has the potential
to be used by God in a way that surpasses every other generation in history.

Have you ever seen something go viral? Maybe you saw one of those videos from a singing competition show where a candidate everyone expected to be terrible ended up being amazing. Or maybe you saw a meme with the president or the pope or Kermit the frog that was totally hilarious and you just happened to notice that it had been shared over a million times. Or it’s the GIF of the weatherman reporting from the middle of a hurricane who literally gets knocked over by the wind…again and again. Or it’s any video of cats. Even though the word “viral” originally meant something awful, like disease, it has grown to describe anything that starts small and spreads quickly. And that’s what this series is about. Picking things in our lives, the right kinds of things, to go viral—to experience something, and then share it, and have it spread, so that before long something that started small, and maybe even started with us, can end up having a big effect on the world around us.
Viral is a new series that starts on June 12th and will end on June 26th.
