OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF:

STARTING MONDAY AT BRAMY’S HOUSE!


#1? Seriously! You are!

Barna statistics confirm that the number one influence in the student’s life is not the youth pastor or the Sunday school teacher, but the parent.  The numbers tell us that the student (when leaving home to enter the college or career environment) will most likely follow what their parents modeled in the home. 

GBYouth exists to supplement parental discipleship.

We provide a church environment for students to further connect, study, disciple and serve. It is our goal to work with you to help students become Bible literate, doctrinally sound and service-ready for the Kingdom.

We are parent-friendly.

We want you to be a part of your child’s growing experience in GBYouth.  Come worship and study with us!  Use our podcasts and notes at GBYouth.org to supplement your family worship and devotion time.

Read. Read. Repeat.

The greatest challenge for the modern church is Bible illiteracy. Simply put, Christians aren’t reading their Bibles and consequently have difficulty understanding (and defending) what they believe.

It is our desire for our students to be Biblically proficient.

The easiest way to accomplish this is following our Daily Bible Reading Plan. With this plan, our students read approximately three chapters (15 minutes) a day, completing the entire Bible in a year. If our students do this every year from 6th-12th grades, they will have read the Bible six times upon graduation. Now, that's a Bible that can be talked about!

For our new GBYouth parents!
At the beginning of each school year.

You will love our August Parentnar!  This is an evening that is set aside for parents of 6th graders and other students who are new to GBYouth.  Parents enjoy a casual sit-down meal with the youth pastor as we discuss the ministry direction, the week to week, and the big events.  We share with you all that you need to know and answer any questions that you may have. Childcare is provided for your convenience.
