What's Up!? from your student pastor!

What's Up!!?? My name is Ian Sullivan and I am the Student Pastor here at GMV and I am so excited about what God is doing with our students!  Here at GMV Students we let the word ONE permeate everything we do!  ONE God, ONE Savior, ONE Person at a time!  We believe our students play a major role in reaching their schools and friends for Christ and it starts with their relationship with Christ!  We believe that if our students encounter Jesus in a profound way that their entire lives will change!  We are so excited for your students to be involved in our ministry and can't wait to reach Gardendale and beyond for Christ!

As GMV Students we also strive to be a family ministry and want parents and adults to be involved if you would like to be involved as a volunteer click Contact Me at (850) 502-9710 or my email isullivan@gmvumc.org.

Also if you are a parent click HERE to see what your students are learning and continue the conversation at home!  Also stay connected by following us on Instagram @ gmv_students and Snapchat at gmvstudents!
