Leading students to Jesus, connecting students to each other.
Your First Visit
Here’s what to expect when visiting Compassion Students for the first time:
First, look for our Compassion Students VIP banner. That’s you! You’re a VIP. One of our student leaders will meet you there and get you connected. It won’t take long to meet other students before we start large group and then break into small groups. We believe that the most important time during our service is when we break into small groups. Why? You get the opportunity to connect with other students in your grade, grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus through discussion and being connected to a Small Group Mentor.
Meet Our Student Pastor
Betsy Hope grew up as a missionary child in Brussels, Belgium where she had a first-hand encounter with Ministry and Missions. There, she developed a burden to do whatever it takes to see Jesus glorified on this earth. She felt called to serve God cross-culturally and move to OKC where she started attending Compassion Church (then River of Life) in 2014. There, her burden to see young people discipled allowed her to not only serve as a youth leader, but also gave her the ability to build relationships with the students. Since 2018, Betsy and her husband Adam have stepped in as the Student Pastors at Compassion Students
