WELCOME TO GRAY ROAD STUDENT MINISTRIES
Student Ministries can be one of the most important and dynamic ministries in an entire church. Young minds are fertile soil to plant the seed of God's amazing truth and that is our purpose here at Gray Road Baptist Church. We desire to assist parents in raising their students in the nurturing and admonition of the Lord. Our youth staff is committed to teaching Biblical truth through a clear explanation of the Scriptures, exemplary living and service. If you desire for your student to be in a place where God is honored and His Word is cherished, I invite you to visit the youth ministry here at Gray Road.
Gray Road Student Ministry exist to Glorify God by:
1. Exalting Jesus in Passionate Worship.
2. Equipping Christians for life and service.
3. Encouraging one another in meaningful fellowship.
4. Engaging the world with the Gospel.
God Bless, Steven Smith
