The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Arlington ministers to students in 7th through 12th grades and their families to help them build the foundation of their lives on Jesus. We want to help students enter into a relationship with Christ, connect to a small group of peers, grow in their knowledge and understanding of Jesus, and to engage the world around them in order to make a difference because of their faith. We want to partner with parents to help them to be the Godly parents that they are intended to be and to help them lead their children to be formed into the image of Christ.

Expectations of each team member:

  • Growing, personal relationship with Christ.
  • Seek to build depth in your relationships with students.
  • Prepare for each week for your specific responsibility.
  • Connect to students outside of our church campus.
  • Be committed to fulfill your responsibility by being present and on time each week.
