Youth


 

Teenagers are naturally seeking to find out who they are, what they believe, and where they belong. Here at First Baptist of Mount Olive, we strive to help teens find the answers to those questions. We hope that each student who takes part in our ministry will realize they are a loved child of God. Our goal is to teach youth the importance of faith and to help them develop a long lasting Christian faith.

The key focus in our youth ministry is building strong relationships. During our activities we work to help teens discover and grow a relationship with Jesus Christ. Being a Christian is more than reciting a simple prayer. As a youth group we desire to give Jesus full access to our lives. This requires that our relationship with Jesus becomes a part of who we are as people and as a group.

Not only is our relationship with Jesus important, so is our relationship with others. We want to be a community that welcomes everyone as they are and loves them as Jesus does. Like our church we follow the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. We have students of all kinds ready to welcome you. If you are looking for a place to belong we hope you will consider joining us for a youth event.

Some of our favorite events include lock-ins, trips to the movies, eating together, summer camp, mission projects, and hanging in our new youth room. You can find us at any of these activities. Check out the rest of our website for details. We look to forward seeing you at First Baptist of Mount Olive.
