Youth Department

Youth Director: Bro. James Leeder

Assistant Youth Director: Bro. Ryan Barr


Ps 25:4 - "Shew me thy ways O LORD; teach me thy paths."


Our theme for 2016 is "Teach my thy paths" The purpose of this youth ministry is to help equip our young people with the necessary tools from God's Word to lay the right foundation for the rest of their life. We do not aim to take the place of Godly parents, but rather to work alongside them in helping teens make wise decisions during these crucial years. To this end, we offer several opportunities for your teen to obtain spiritual direction as well as Godly fellowship and recreation:


  • Sunday School - Every Sunday morning, Brother Leeder or Bro.  Barr brings a Bible message to help explain the truths found in God's Word. Regardless of the struggles teenagers face, the answers and comfort are found in God's Word!
  • Monthly Activities - Each month we get together for a time of fellowship and fun. You can check the calendar to see what's coming up next.
  • Annual Activities - These  include a Car Wash, Youth Conference Trip, Photo/Video Scavenger Hunt, and Awards banquet.

 Christmas Awards Banquet

 Each year in December we have a formal banquet to honor our teens.  Awards for faithfulness, Christian character, improvement, and service are given to deserving teens.  The banquet always proves to be a great memory making experience for those serving God in their youth.


 Summer Car Wash Fundraiser

 Each year, on the second Saturday of June, our teens host a fundraising Car Wash. Each year we wash over 200 cars raising over $10,000 from local businesses and sponsors.  This money goes to pay for our youth conference trips, special speakers throughout the year, and our Christmas awards banquet.


 Youth Conference - Parkside Baptist Church, Mesquite, TX

 In July of each year we go to the Parkside Youth Conference in the Dallas area.  The conference is highlighted by great preaching; over 15 sessions of Spirit-Filled, power-packed, Bible messages. The trip is paid for by the car wash fund and includes great meals and great memories.  

 

Photo Scavenger Hunt
Our teens get a hilarious list of items to photograph and video with points assigned for each.  After a couple hours of madness and laughs, we meet back to take a look at the various teams' findings!
