Youth Group

Welcome to the Student Ministry

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 nurture 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 exists 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.

Upcoming Teachings


Wednesday Nights (7:00 - 8:30 pm)

6-12 grades meet together on Wednesday nights. We sing praises, read a text of Scripture, then break out into small groups to discuss the lesson and pray. In the fall of 2023, the Youth Group will be studying Leviticus, and by spring of 2024 the Youth will be studying Romans.


Sunday Mornings (9:30 - 10:15 am)

The middle school and high school have separate classes on Sunday mornings. Middle School is 6th - 8th grade, and high school is 9th - 12th grade. Both classes will be studying through catechism questions to review foundational, Biblical truth and how it shapes our faith.
