Get To Know The Ministry

We exist 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 Grace Students 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.

Meeting Time: 6:30-8:00pm in the Timothy Student Center (7:30-8:00pm are discussion groups)

              

Weekend Ministry:

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. This is a time where we will disect even further the passage taught in Main Services that weekend, and help the students to understand the passage, ask questions, and be in discussion groups together. Our goal is for this time to help them understand God's Word for themselves.

 

Meeting Time: 8:45 - 10:00 AM (during first service) in the Timothy Student Center.

 

RECALL Conference

RECALL is a three-day youth conference designed to recall the hearts of junior high and high school students back to the Gospel - its value and its mission.  Your student will experience a weekend packed with fantastic teaching from experienced speakers, engaging worship music, breakout sessions, incredible games and activities,and discipleship talks throughout the weekend.  The Lord has revealed His mighty hand working in each of the students' lives through our annual RECALL conference.  There is nothing more exciting than seeing a student asking questions about God and the Gospel.  Each year's theme is an opportunity for students to focus on an area of the Gospel and how it impacts their daily lives as followers of Chris

 

RECALL 2022 - "EKKLESIA" | March 4-6, 2022

This year's theme is centered around the idea of the body of Christ, called the church.  Our deep desire is to help students understand the powerful significance of the saints gathering, the mission of the church, its distinctions and its position.  We want students to have a clear understanding of the glorious meaning of the church and with the Spirit's help, increase their affection towards God's people.  
 
 
 


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. The Frontline Team is also being trained to serve on a GO Team (short-term missions team).  The 2022-2023 Team will be serving in Ecuador.  This year's team has already been chosen, but if you are interested in finding out more about Frontline you can email us with any questions.

 

Grace Groups:

Grace 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.

Meeting Time: 7:30 - 8:00pm in theTimothy Student Center.
