Get To Know Our Ministry:

Grace Baptist Student Ministry exists to make and multiply mature followers of Jesus Christ; moving them from first faith to firm faith by equipping them with God’s Word, to live in God’s world, that they might demonstrate and magnify the supremacy of Christ in all things.

Our Philosophy:

The deciding factor of a successful youth ministry is for students to learn and know God’s Word. Metric tools certainly help the organization of a ministry, but the bottom line of success is what God determines to be necessary for the nourishment and building of His church. Grace Student Ministry desires to be identified by a practice and philosophy entirely driven by Scripture; it is an extension of the local church and is integrated with the family. As a ministry, it is our highest goal to make and multiply Christ followers through discipleship, modeling theological truths, and reaching the lost. We are text driven, church focused. Period!

 

What Does Student Ministry Offer?

Wednesday Nights “The Gathering”Our mid-week service envisions reaching students from all backgrounds. The “crowd” includes believing and unbelieving students as well as their friends. Our main goal is to provide an easy entrance to Student Ministry life, such that church-going students will feel comfortable (and eager) to invite their unchurched friends. Videos, music, games, skits, and relational leaders can be expected. Moreover, this meeting will provide a thought-provoking 15-20 minute message, which lends itself to a presentation of the Gospel. Students will then break into small groups, called Grace Group Time, to discuss the message amongst themselves. To access audio files of our Wednesday Night sermons, click here.

Meeting Time: 6:30-8:00pm in the Timothy Student Center

Weekend Ministry

Saturday Night "Hang Out and Devos": Our Saturday night service focuses on helping engage the mind and desire of students who claim Christ as their Savior and attend the weekend worship services at Grace Baptist Church. Students who attend these services are interested in learning more about God and His Word. We encourage these students to first attend our main weekend services to worship together and sit under the teaching of God’s Word with their families, and then attend Hang Out & Devos. Thus, these meetings are structured and designed for students to engage Christ and one another, providing ample time for them to know and engage their brothers and sisters in Christ. Therefore, a 20-minute devotional, led by the Student Ministries Pastors or adult staff, can be expected to help students grow in their knowledge of Scripture, followed by a time of fellowship.

Meeting Time: Devotional from 7:10-7:45 and fellowship time from 7:45-8:10 PM in the Timothy Student Center.  

 

Sunday Morning "Going Deeper": Our Sunday morning service focuses on helping engage the mind and desire of students who claim Christ as their Savior and attend the weekend worship services at Grace Baptist Church. Students who attend these services are considered 'the committed' to learn more about God and His Word. These meetings are structured and designed for students to engage Christ and one another. Therefore, a 25-30 minute expositional/theological lesson, led by the Student Ministries Pastors or adult staff, can be expected to help students grow in their knowledge of God's Word, Work, and Mission. Moreover, we encourage these students to attend main services afterward, to worship together and sit under the teaching of God's Word with their families.

Meeting Time: 9:00 -10:15 AM in the Timothy Student Center.

 

 

Frontline - Join Frontline! 

Frontline exists to help students develop a servant’s heart, that courageously leads others by serving around youth group and church, increasing their understanding of Christ and His Gospel, and actively developing new followers of Jesus Christ. Moreover, we aim to help Frontline students understand that the church is not divided into different “departments,” but connected on a larger scale, with the final goal to Make and Multiply followers of Christ that magnify the glory of God.

Grace GroupsGrace Groups are a vital part of Student Ministry. The goal of Grace Groups is to make disciples, men and women full of the life of Christ. We look to Jesus’ life as the paradigm for discipleship, rooting students in the Gospel and bringing it to bear in their lives, pointing them to see how it shapes us every day and in every season of life. We desire for these students to be dependent upon God’s word, as we see in Jesus’ life and teaching how He was dependent on His Father’s word.
