The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Athens seeks to 

partner with parents to raise teenagers who know, love, and serve Jesus. 

Our goal is to encourage teens to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ as they grow in relationship with one another.
 
At FBC, we seek to develop creative worship experiences in which students encounter God. We also desire to equip and inspire parents as they seek to raise Godly teenagers. Our focus is on spiritual transformation and character development rather than behavior modification. We encourage teens to live out their faith through service in both their church and communities.
 
First Baptist Athens is committed to providing a biblically based, vibrant ministry to our students.  We meet every Wednesday at 6:00 pm to fellowship, worship, and study God’s Word. Pastor Drew preaches expositional messages through books of the Bible. Wednesday Night is our main time together as a student ministry. 
 
On Sunday Mornings, students have their own age graded small group to attend. Our Sunday morning groups are led by qualified adults who love students and teach God’s Word. We being at 9:30 am in the activity center as one group, and then break up into smaller classes after some large group time together. Any student in 7th-12th grade is welcome to attend. 
 
In addition to Wednesday Night and Sunday Morning, we plan special mission projects, retreats, camps, and other opportunities on a regular basis.  Our youth have many opportunities to grow and serve.
 
The First Baptist Youth Ministry is for all students in grades 7-12. We meet in the church Activity Center for all of our gatherings. Come join us for times of fun, worship, teaching on the Word of God, and special events throughout the year. For any questions about student ministry, please contact Pastor Drew.
