The Race:

From Here to Eternity

”Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

Hebrews 12:1-3

fab cAMP 2016

FAB Camp was held July 29-31 at Guyandotte Baptist Association Camp in Ona, WV.  Students entering 6th grade in the fall through 2016 graduating class participated.  "Knot Alone" was this year's theme with a Celtic flavor.  The four clans battled it out in various activities like Highlander games and Knockerball; small groups met to study and discuss Bible passages; the Southern Ohio Boys (with FAB's own Dylan Bentley and Nick Duffield) led us in music; some used their creative side in the craft corner; we held vesper services; had alone time with God; sang and prayed around the campfire; welcomed new sixth grade students, and said farewell to our class of 2016 seniors. It was a great end to the summer and a kick off for back to school time.  Plan to be there in 2017 - typically the last weekend in July.

Colossians 3:12-14

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Small Groups

On Sunday evenings, youth gather for small groups led by adult volunteers. Two small groupsgirls & boysmeet 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.
