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.

About the Youth Staff

My name is Jordan Tyra and I am the Director of Student Ministries at Gray Road Baptist Church. My wife, Shayna, and I met at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky and were married in May of 2018. Shayna is currently serving in GRBC’s school ministry as a Pre-K teacher’s aide. 

As a couple, we love to read, explore cities, and invest in relationships with those around us. God has brought us from Louisville to Indianapolis to invest in the lives of the youth and point them to our only hope of salvation: Jesus Christ. We are overjoyed to be ministering in this way, and we look forward to growing in fellowship with the church body of GRBC and the community surrounding us.



Feel free to contact us for any reason.
