Welcome to our
On Sunday evenings, youth gather for small groups led by adult volunteers. Two small groups—girls & boys—meet at two residences from 6:30 -8:30 p.m. They study Scripture together, pray with and for one another, and share life with each other.
On Wednesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. in the FAB Lab, the youth get together as a combined large group for Bible Study & various mission projects.
Annual youth events include senior & junior high conventions, a ski trip, an outing to a local corn maze, and FAB Camp, during which we honor our graduating seniors and welcome our incoming 6th graders.
To serve the Huntington community in creative ways, our youth participate in projects like Rake & Run, Grow & Go, and snow shoveling. Each December, our youth take under-served children Christmas shopping and serve them lunch afterward. We also travel on national and international mission trips, completing construction projects, leading Vacation Bible Schools, and sharing the love of God with others.
We regularly get together with other youth groups in the West Virginia Baptist Convention for discipleship and fellowship—and an annual game of Broomball, held at an ice skating rink in Charleston.
Our youth attend weeklong camps held throughout the summer at Camp Cowen, youth conventions held in churches throughout the state, and other events that feature engaging guest speakers, uplifting music, and unique opportunities for spiritual growth.
Many of our youth serve in leadership roles with the West Virginia Baptist Convention’s YLC (Youth Leader Core) and YMPT (Youth Ministry Planning Team).
Youth are more than the future leaders of the church; they are leaders today also. Our Youth Leader Team is a group of primarily high school students who have been equipped by FAB and WVBC leaders to lead in areas of Bible study, worship, missions, and other ministries. The Youth Leader Team meets monthly to be equipped with new skills to lead in our youth ministry.
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." -1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
412, our youth praise band, aims to lead others in worship across all generations in a God-honoring way. Guided by 1 Timothy 4:12, our hope is that we set an example for other believers through the gift of music.
