Elder: Pastor Bryan Patrick
MISSION STATEMENT: To develop a foundation rooted in God's Word with personal accountability and meaningful fellowship through the building, maintaining, and strengthening of Christ-centered relationships among our youth and their families.
Psalms127:4 Behold, children are an inheritance of Yahweh, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
High School and Middle School Ministries
It is the mission of GHBC to show your teenagers where they can find absolute truth. This comes from Scripture. We gear the Youth ministry to move them from the Bible stories they learn as children to understanding why they believe these truths for themselves. We engage them to think and ponder upon God and His Word in hopes that their faith is their own and not a false hope.
Surge is our transitionary stage from the children's ministry to the youth ministry. It covers the 5th and 6th grade levels, and is designed to move them deeper in the personal study of God's Word. In Surge the students are introduced to hermeneutics, systematic, theology and prepare them for the transition into the youth ministry program.
Y2F - Youth Family Fun
We hold an evening of fun and fellowship every other month. These are designed to bring families back together, where youth and parents eat, fellowship, study God's Word and play games together. These events are open to all family members of youth and youth leadership.
Nothing seems to grow students more than getting away together, to struggle, compete, serve, and worship God along side each other. Each Year GHBC takes the students on a trip to fellowship and grow in Christ. It has always been the goal of GHBC to choose camps which are theologically sound and provide safe organized events. This year we are offering two camps. First will be our annual Williamsburg retreat open to both Jr and Sr youth, here we facilitate the teaching and most activities and it has become a great bonding experience over the years. We also are offering another trip this year open to the 9-12th grade only. Wayumi, is a ministry of Ethnos 360 and provides an immersive introduction to long term over seas missions to unreached people groups. If you would like more information about either of these trips please email Pastor Bryan.
