Galloway Student Ministry

The Galloway UMC Student Ministry is designed to minister to youth grades 7 - 12th and students in college or graduate/professional school. Our goal is keeping students connected to the love of Christ through Bible study, fellowship, and service.

Information about our youth ministry for students in grades 7-12th can be found below.

Youth Fellowship

Matthew 5:13-16 speaks on how we are the Salt and Light of the world, which shows our importance. Not just our importance to God but to each other. Who of you places one grain of salt on your meal? One grain of salt has no purpose, yet many grains bring taste and hold the power to preserve.

Sunday School

On Sunday Mornings, we gather in the Youth Suite on the 5th floor beginning at 9:30 a.m.  After announcements and prayer, we split into junior high and senior high classes.

  • Junior High class is taught by Kacky Mangum and Teresa Arnold.
  • Senior High is taught by Anna and Justin Peterson and Tim Allen.

Community Service Projects

We are always trying to find new ways to reach out to the community and serve those around us. A few of our service projects include: The Bethlehem Center, Rise Against Hunger, Downtown Partners, Salvation Army and putting on an Easter Egg hunt for Children around the Jackson area.

For more information on our Youth Activities contact Walter Roberts at


Junior High and Senior High School Students meet at the church Sunday evenings beginning at 5:00 p.m. for a time of fellowship. We share in a meal together and learn more about God through music, videos, games and studying Scripture. 

Galloway College Ministry

For more information contact Student Ministries by calling 601-353-9691. 

The college ministries of Galloway UMC involve many members, many schools and their affiliate church related organizations all seeking to serve and be a part of one body, the body of Jesus Christ.  As the body of Christ, we seek to provide every college student connected to Galloway with a place to be nurtured spiritually and physically as we encourage their growth as disciples of Jesus Christ in this world.

We are connected to over 150 college and graduate students from 35 different schools including those attending colleges out-of-town whose home church is Galloway and those who are in the metro Jackson area.
We support Millsaps Wesley Connexion which meets in the Susannah Wesley Dorm on Tuesdays at 11:50 am for a meal and holy Communion.

We provide opportunities for students to engage in service both locally and internationally through Grace Place, Habitat for Humanity, Mississippi Blood Drives, Brown Elementary School, and Salt and Light Ministry in Honduras.
