Aftershock Student Ministry provides a safe environment for middle school and high school students to encounter God and experience community so that they become equipped disciples who are able to engage their world. 

We want to partner with your family to disciple your students, so that each child has the Biblical foundation necessary to become a mature follower of Christ when they graduate high school. We do this is through Life Connection Groups on Sunday morning, Wednesday worship during the week, and Discipleship Groups on Sunday nights. We also have events scattered throughout the year to provide a fun and encouraging environment to build Godly friendships.


Student Ministry meets every Wednesday night. Students can expect a fun environment where they can enjoy time with friends, worship, preaching, and games. Following our time of preaching, we break into grade specific small groups to further discuss the message on an age appropriate level.

Buck Browning | Assistant Student Pastor
Buck and his family began attending Northwood in July of 2020. He and his wife Maria have been married since February of 2000 and have three children, Noah, Alyssa, and Eli. Buck retired from the U.S. Navy after 25 years of service in 2022 and has since felt a direct calling on his life toward ministry. Since coming to Christ in 2008, he became more and more involved in the various churches he has been apart of, specifically in youth ministries such as AWANA and various youth camps. His passion for the development of youth has led to him taking a direct roll in a Taekwondo ministry (YESHA), as well as coming on staff here at Northwood to work with our middle school student ministries. Buck is looking forward to what God has in store for the future of student ministries at Northwood!
