YOUTH MINISTRY

‘Equip’ is the youth ministry of Faith Bible Church (7th-12th  grade). We operate under the oversight of the Faith Bible Church Elders and come alongside the parents to equip our youth ‘for every good work’.

II Timothy 3:16-17

“All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be equipped, having been thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Goal

Our goal is for each young person, from Childhood to adulthood, to have a strong saving faith and conviction in the LORD Jesus (2 Tim 3:14-15), to grow in the sufficiency of Scripture through the grace and knowledge of our God as revealed in God’s Word (2 Tim 3:16), and to live ‘equipped’ for His glory (2 Tim 3:17).  We aim to follow Christ as disciple-makers (Matt 28:18-20) of our youth and grow them into maturing adults. This happens through the instruction of Scripture and training in righteousness so that they will be equipped for every good work in which God has called them.  Through sound teaching, the youth are taught sound doctrine of who God is, how to live a life pleasing to God, and what God has commanded for the lives of His disciples.

Purpose

Our ministry focuses on purposeful meetings that equip students ‘for every good work’ as maturing disciples of Christ, this is accomplished by regular meetings that incorporate Scriptural teaching and fellowship:

Expositional Studying  & Systematic Teaching – We meet twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month (5-6:30pm) at the Liles and Johnsons homes for an expositional study of a book or Biblical topic, systematic theology, discussion, and prayer. Please see the calendar for updated meeting locations and details.

Fellowship – We also meet each month on the 1st Saturday at various times for a time of fellowship. These fellowship meetings include fundraisers, outdoor movie nights, hikes, camping, service projects, missions trips, and much more.

Annual Camp Regen – Faith Bible Church Youth Ministry is going to Camp Regen from Jul 26-30, 2024. Please see the following description for more detail from campregen.com:

“Camp Regeneration is the High School Summer Camp hosted by John MacArthur and Grace Community Church for high school ministries nationwide to join on the campus of Glorieta, New Mexico for powerful expository preaching, Christ-centered music, intense team games, various outdoor activities, small-group discipleship, and purposeful fellowship. Let us handle all of the camp details so you can focus on investing in your students! The ultimate goal of Camp Regeneration is to see students come to salvation in Jesus Christ and grow in the knowledge of Him. We facilitate these by bringing in world-class expository preachers to share and explain God’s Word to those attending camp. These speakers break down the truths of Scripture in a way that is applicable to those in high school for what they are going through. However, we believe that you do not have to sacrifice fun in order to have sound, biblical teaching. Just to make sure of that, we load up the week with intense team games designed to maximize fun throughout the week! This week will be epic and over-the top with energy; your students will not want to miss it.”
