Student Ministries

eFree Student Ministries exists to multiply disciples of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the ministry of the Word.

We offer students in grades 6-12 several exciting opportunities to get involved and build your faith! Read on to find out all the details. We hope you'll follow us on social media and stay in touch! Café-19 is our student ministry space and is located down the main stairs in the lower level, at the end of the hallway.

Wednesday Evenings


RISEN is a ministry for students in grades 6-12 that aims to transform lives by proclaiming the resurrected Jesus Christ in all of His grace and glory.

Wednesday Evenings, 6:30pm-8:15pm in Café 19, September-May

Doors open on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm for leaders and students to fellowship and eat a delicious meal together in Café 19. After dinner, we enter a time of worship and listen to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. Then, students break out into small groups and discuss the practical application of the sermon. Small groups are led by godly adults who show up every week to love and pour their lives into students.

You can catch past messages on the RISEN YouTube playlist, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere podcasts are found.


Sunday Mornings

Student Equip

Student Equip aims to build up the body of Christ by equipping students to do the work of the ministry.
(Ephesians 4:12)

Sunday Mornings, 9:30am-10:45am in Café-19

We gather on Sunday mornings to fellowship, study the core doctrines of our faith, practice spiritual disciplines, and learn how to faithfully interpret God’s Word. Please join us!


D(iscipleship)-Group aims to intentionally disciple students in the truths and practices of a mature follower of Jesus so that they may go and do the same for others.

Students in a D-Group commit to meeting weekly for one year with a godly adult. When the group comes together, the meetings follow a strategic order. The group (1) opens in prayer, (2) shares highs and lows from the week, (3) recites memorized portions of Scripture, (4) discusses personal meditations from time spent alone with God throughout the week, (5) confesses sin as well as celebrates victories, and (6) closes in prayer for one another. As the group meets every week over the course of the year, students grow in grace and develop essential habits for a faithful and fruitful life in Christ Jesus.

To join a D-Group, please talk to Pastor Robert for the next steps.

Bible Quizzing

Students Diving Deep Into Scripture

Wednesday evening practice, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM, beginning September 6, 2023

Gathering together weekly during the school year to study and memorize Scripture, students on the eFree Bible Quiz Team prepare to compete with other church teams at various fun and fast-paced quiz meets throughout the year!

Youth Conference


Districts Youth Conference: A Weekend to Connect to God and Others

We always ask our graduating seniors the same question: "During your time in youth ministry, what were some of the most powerful experiences that strengthened your relationship with Jesus?" And without fail, the annual Districts Youth Conference remains one of the top answers.

When thousands of students and leaders gather together to seek the face of God through His Word, prayer, and worship, students come back not only closer to God, but to each other. Nothing accelerates the deepening of friendships between students and leaders quite like a weekend away in pursuit of our God. Districts, then, is a remarkable opportunity to connect both to God and each other in powerful ways, and we desire every student to have this experience!

Serve Sheboygan

Serving Our Neighbors With Extreme and Uncommon Generosity

Our whole church partners together every July for a three-day, at-home outreach event that aims to "Serve Sheboygan" with such extreme and uncommon generosity that our neighbors are tangibly confronted with the radical, self-giving love of Christ. Students and leaders complete various service projects and look for opportunities to pray and share the gospel. At the conclusion of the daily service assignments, students have opportunities to hear challenging messages as well as engage in prayer and small group discussions.

Please follow along with news shared about Serve Sheboygan by following Student Ministries on Instagram!

Serve Sheboygan 2023 Recap

During these three meaningful days from July 20th to 22nd, our devoted students and adult leaders came together to serve our neighbors, exemplifying the spirit of Jesus—a true servant. Inspired by His teachings, we passionately embraced the call to be agents of love and compassion, leaving an indelible mark on our community.

Pastor Robert Lee

Pastor of Student Ministries

In His grace, God brought our family to Sheboygan eFree Church just before the beginning of a new year in December 2019. God has planted a burning passion and resolve in both Tiffany and me to labor alongside the body of Christ in making disciples of Jesus Christ, most especially among the youth. 

We both hail from Joliet, a city of around 150,000 located about 45 miles south of Chicago. Married in 2013, we stayed in the area until 2015, when we packed up and moved to Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute. While at Moody, I majored in biblical languages. 

We have three sons: Levi, Theodore, and Peter, all born within three years of each other (pray for us!). Our major hobbies include playing with the boys, reading, barbell training, and spending time with people.


Michael Vaszily

Elder and Student Ministries Advisor

Sharing the love, hope and peace of God with the next generation is a great responsibility and privilege. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve as a ministry advisor to both the kids and student ministry programs as we work together to reach the youth of our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We see our role as supporting parents in accomplishing this ever important mission. As a parent of three, I understand the challenges families face today. I also know the amazing impact the true living God can have in helping us (parents) love, teach and train these children in the way they should go. Stop in and check us out. We look forward to partnering with you!
