Second Baptist does student ministry a little differently than some places. There’s less emphasis on having a flashy program, and more emphasis on building relationships and equipping our teenagers to build habits of faith for a lifetime.
That’s not to say our students don’t have fun. Our students have taken mission trips to New York and South Africa, ski trips to Colorado, and retreats all around the state. They play ultimate frisbee together on Sundays at Macarthur Park among other opportunities for fellowship and fun here at home. But these activities are just a means to an end of challenging them to have a deep faith, and to live lives accountable to one another and God.

Ultimately it is our desire for every student in our youth ministry to have vibrant and active relationship with God, providing them a source of identity in Christ that will shape every part of who they are and allow their faith to 'stick' as they leave home and go out into the world.
