Rooted Student Ministry

John 15:5

Welcome and Purpose

Rooted Student ministry is our student ministry here at FBC Hodgenville. Our goal is to develop, grow, and strengthen relationships with Jesus Christ. We believe that our roots should be in Jesus to grow and strengthen us. The verse that sparked this name comes from John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in Him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me.”

Noah and Anna Ackermann

Student Coordinator

Rooted Student Ministry has three goals:

  • GROW toward a relationship with Jesus!

  • GROW in a relationship with Jesus!

  • GROW with one another!

GROW toward a relationship with Jesus

Without God we can do nothing. Our prayer is that students remember that as they grow up. We want students to know that Jesus is our rock, solid foundation, and true vine.

GROW in our relationship with Jesus

When we stay connected to Jesus as believers, we will produce fruit because of Him. That fruit can look like loving others as Jesus loved others or seeing the “least” and loving them.

GROW with one another

As students grow their personal relationships with Jesus. We want to encourage them to grow alongside each other. Building each other up toward Jesus.

Is God calling you to serve with students? Do you have a passion to see a new generation meet Jesus and be on fire for the kingdom?



There is a place for you to serve students whether it’s leading a small group, chaperoning for big events and summer camps, or anything in between.

If you are interested in serving with our students please contact Noah and become a mentor to our next generations of the Church!!!


We have bible study groups following service each week. We split into a middle school group and a high school group. We desire to dig deeper into the Bible; begin developing and growing our roots into the Word. We would love for your student to meet us in the youth room directly following our church service. 


Wednesday night we have a Bible study for Students. Dinner is served at 5:30. Starting at 6 we have small groups in the Student room. We would love for your student to join us as we learn more about who God is and what He has done for us.
