The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Church, Hillsborough exists to reach youth with the good news of Jesus Christ, that they may be mentored in their relationship with God and glorify Him with their lives as they fellowship with one another and serve others in Christian love.
This mission statement is meant to be in conjunction with the overall church mission statement. In it, you will find the aspects of testimony, discipleship, worship and fellowship. Our youth activities are consequently planned around these aspects of ministry to support a well-balanced youth program. Every month, we have an activity strictly intended to promote fellowship. This may include a trip to the movies, bowling, lock-ins, etc. We also have monthly testimony activities. This can take on the form of a mission project like painting someone's house, visiting the nursing homes or raking the yards of senior adults. The monthly testimony activity can also be more of an outreach event in which we are trying to get inactive youth involved, reaching out to the unchurched in our community or heading off to Summer Camp to do mission work. Every Sunday morning, Sunday night and Wednesday nights, we have times of discipleship in the form of Sunday School, Youth Bible Studies and Missions Education. We welcome any youth to join us as we seek to join God in His ministry.
On October 5th, 12th, and 19th, the Youth Ministry Team presented and summarized an important book about Youth Ministry called Almost Christian:What the Faith of Our Teenagers is Telling the American Church by Dr. Kenda Creasy Dean. Below are the powerpoint presentations we presented to the parents and congregants of the church. Please feel free to ask any one of us any questions you may have after reading and reviewing one of these sessions.
