Grow – Connect – Serve are three core values that infuse all Ridge ministries. Our goal is to provide space for you to grow spiritually, emotionally and relationally. Jesus said that the greatest commandment was to love God and the second was to love people. This means that we were designed for growth, connection and service. We believe that when these three core values are happening, we are loving God and loving people according to his design.
The Ridge Kids’ ministry team provides a dynamic learning environment of discipleship and growth in Jesus Christ. Children from birth through fifth grade learn through hands-on activities from 9:45 to 11:15 each Sunday. Gospel-centered art, worship, and play help children apply God’s Word. For more information, contact Tracey Schildberg (email@example.com or 520-282-9726) or Cyndi Wendorf (firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-232-4020).
Our Student Ministry program is for students in junior high and high school. Youth meet Wednesday nights, 6:30-8:00, and Sunday mornings, 8:45-9:45, for small-group Bible studies and fellowship. Retreats and summer camps add to the fun! This group focuses on engaging young minds and hearts in developing leadership for Christ.

Women’s Ministry at The Ridge exists to connect and spiritually grow sisters in Christ of every age and background. Activities include Bible studies, coffees, luncheons, and serving our neighbors at The Gospel Rescue Mission of Tucson Women’s and Children’s Center and at Eagles’ Wings of Grace. Each gathering is designed to increase mentorship and fellowship with each other and in our communities. For more information, contact Kathy Calhoun (email@example.com or 520-403-8444).
Men’s Ministry at The Ridge is characterized by relationship-based opportunities for men to grow and mature as Christian leaders in their homes, workplaces, and communities.
