Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
We desire that the students of the FSBC Student Ministry be taught and equipped to be holistic disciples of Christ through the investment of time and effort by older believers and other students. These teachings include the gospel of Christ, the divine nature and inerrancy of Scripture, and the identity of the Trinity. Furthermore, healthy spiritual lifestyles and habits are to be modeled and encouraged by those investing in younger believers.
Student Bible Studies
Get Connected. Go Deeper.
In our twice weekly Bible studies we help students grow deep roots of faith and build friendships with one another.
A couple of times a year, our students participate in a Serve Week. During Spring Break and a week in the summer, our students help work on projects as a mission trip. This allows them to bond as a group and learn new life skills. Biblical teaching and fun are also fundamental to these weeks as well.
Each summer the students attend Super Summer, a week-long camp at Webster Conference Center in Salina. It is a fun-filled, spiritually-enriching environment where students are challenged to grow in their personal walk with Christ. Students also enjoy the ropes challenge courses and spend time with their friends.
The Student Ministry of FSBC exists for the purpose of reaching, teaching, and equipping young disciples of Christ who will go on to further the Kingdom through their words and actions. We do this in accordance with, Titus 2, 1 Timothy 4:12, Ephesians 4:14-15, and Matthew 28:18-20. The primary goal of the FSBC Youth Ministry is to live life together while searching for opportunities to encourage, counsel, and model godliness as stated in 1 Corinthians 11:1 and Galatians 6:2. Additionally, we seek to engage with the community and school system surrounding FSBC to gain opportunities to show the love of Christ to more students. In all of this, we seek to create a safe and welcoming environment in which the students can find shelter and rest from the struggles of this world in the presence of God as stated in Matthew 11:28-30. The primary goal is for students of FSBC to graduate with Biblical literacy, sound theology, healthy spiritual habits, and a supportive community.
The leaders of the FSBC Student Ministry desire students to become holistic disciples of Christ in soul, heart, mind, and action. Christ instructs all believers to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” as well as to “love your neighbor as yourself.” in Mark 13:30-31. We believe this is best developed through an environment matching the instructions of Paul in Titus 2. As such, we expect older men who are clear headed, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness to be teaching young men how to be true men of God. Likewise, we expect older women who are clear-headed, respectable, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness to be teaching young women how to be godly women. Furthermore, we desire that all those involved in volunteer aspects of the FSBC Student Ministry believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-8), that the Scripture is inspired by God thus free from error (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and that God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
