The First Baptist Youth Ministry strives to create a welcoming atmosphere of Christian community through bible study, worship, service, retreats, and fun. Our focus is on developing relationships with God and with each other.

Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

let's journey together

As growing developing followers (DF) of Christ, youth need both information and experiences to create foundations and structure that last. It is not enough to simply have a moving lesson/sermon that gives youth a nuanced (albeit impactful and true) perspective, DFs need context or opportunity to put it into practice.

why journey this way?

The goal of FBCYouth is to give depth and breadth to the image and experience of God. 


First Baptist's Youth attend two camps annually. The first is March Mission Madness, where students take part in a Mission hosted through a fellow CBF (Cooperative Baptist Fellowship) congregation. 

The second is Passport, for both Youth and Kids, scheduled separately. Passport is a missions focused weeklong camp during the summer hosted at different locations in the south and southeast. Students are lead by groups to participate in games, activities, an annual Rec Party, Bible study, worship and a time to respond. 

The Passport Camp for youth is for rising 6th through rising 12th grade students. 

Registration begins in January 2020. Please sign up with Glenn if you'd like to volunteer as a chaperone or if your student would like to attend. 


Experiences and context are twofold. The first is found in the simple worship and interaction with God and God's creation. People are experiential and have unique, personal interactions with the world around them. Because of this, we facilitate worship and lessons that are both approachable and challenging. FBCYouth Ministries incorporates multiple elements into worship: music, media, food, interactive events and even goofy activities. 

Secondly, mission work is the other context -- first locally, then universally. It is in these situations that the Gospel is understood. Love flexes and bends to fit many circumstances and people; the Gospel is the same in that regard. We are called to bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to everyone we can impact. Jesus sets that standard for us in the way He lived and taught others to live.
