Welcome to OCEC LifeWire!

What is LifeWire?

lifewireFocus on the Bible, application, and practicality in the life of a middle school student. Through the use of Bible stories and characters, the attributes of God, the life of Christ, biblical decision-making, a knowledge of God’s standards, a biblical world view and a godly self-image, we train youth to learn and live the meat of God’s Word.

Why do we exist?

Training middle school youth to be faithful and prepared followers of Jesus Christ.
These are some of the Bible verses that help describe our ministry: Matthew 28:18-20; James 1:22; Ephesians 3:16-19; 1 Timothy 4:12

How do we define each word?

Faithful – Unwavering in their devotion to the LORD
Prepared – Giving them the knowledge to stand up for the LORD in and ungodly world
Followers of Jesus Christ – Jesus said that we must take up our cross daily and follow Him. Also, the great commission calls us to develop disciples and teach them everything that He has commanded. Disciples follow their master, we follow Jesus!

Here are some other ways we help strengthen the LifeWire Group

Missions trip and outreach

Developing each other’s focus on missions. We consider friends, family, community, the needy and the world as our mission field. Through regular service projects and our annual missions trip, students learn what it means to follow Christ. Middle school students have an incredible capacity to give, love, and serve those around them.

Small Groups

This is where real effective ministry happens. A higher ratio of student to staff makes these small group times great for closer contact with students and more time spent in the Word and modeling/mentoring of Jesus. Our goal is that students will grow closer to Jesus and a knowledge of His Word by spending time focusing on their spiritual life.


These events are crucial to the building of friendships, getting kids into the group, having good Christian fun and making youth group a place where we can effectively communicate the Gospel. Through these fun activities, we can gain access to the non-believer’s heart and mind and encourage godly relationships.
