Youth

 

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.

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.

Youth Studies

Teachers: Pastor Bryan Patrick, Zach Turner, Javier Owens

Sunday Morning: We are currently teaching through Genesis, focusing and talking through the many issues that arise surrounding Genesis as we go through roughly a chapter a week. This is more of a group discussion here we really encourage interaction. @9am in the Youth room in the Family Center.

Anchored: We meet on Wednesday night at 6:30 for fellowship and study. GHBC offers some fun games, and then a study of God's Word. Currently, we are studying 1 John.  Wednesday night studies are geared towards delving deeper into theology and doctrine as we exegetically go through Scripture.    (We meet in the youth center on the church campus @6:30pm

Youth Camps

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, these have have included Fuge camps and D3 among others in previous years. It has always been the goal of GHBC to choose camps which are theologically sound and provide safe organized events.
