FBC Student Ministry

Our youth program is founded under the same motto as the church; leading students to KNOW Christ, GROW for Christ, and GO for Christ, transforming the world.

In an effort for students to KNOW and GROW with Christ and have a genuine encounter with Him, we emphasize being here when we gather for Sunday morning Bible study, for corporate worship in our sanctuary, and again for our youth Bible study downstairs on most Sunday nights. On Wednesday nights, we have groups for students of all ages. The girls participate in the Acteens program and the boys have Bible study, hands-on projects, and more.

While we believe that knowing and growing in Christ are directly related to scripture and prayer, we also offer opportunities for students to know and grow outside of the buildings four walls. Some of our experiences include working at local nonprofits, attending camps in the summer, fall retreats, concerts, conferences, and more.

Matthew 28:18-20, reads, "And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.""

This passage is a command for all believers to live life on mission for God. Scripture teachers that "as we go" through life as believers, we are to make disciples. In order to make a disciple, you have to be a disciple. Through our commitment to teaching of scripture and students begin to know and grow, we want to provide opportunities for them to GO as well. Some of the opportunities our students have to "go" not only include international trips, but trips within the United States and most often in their own schools. We believe that students can be great disciple makers within their own schools.
