Our Purpose is to Expose students to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Equip them for Christ-like maturity; and guide them to Experience God’s purpose for their life through ministry.

Welcome



Welcome!

I wanted to take a second to share some info about our youth ministry here at Country & Town Baptist Church. The name of our youth ministry is Student Impact. We consist of grades 7-12. Our ministry for youth strives to Expose students to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Equip them for Christ-like maturity, and guide them to Experience God’s purpose for their life through ministry.

We aim to achieve this through various aspects. For example we facilitate the opportunity for youth to connect with other christian youth in Biblical studies, small groups, fun day trips, summer missions, service projects, retreats, and camps.

We also firmly believe that those who can have the greatest impact on the lives of our youth is those in the home, and so it is our desire to always become partners with parents and guardians. We encourage an open environment for parents/guardians to freely and accessibly reach out to the youth ministry for assistance. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Feel free to find us on Facebook @ Stu Impact

God Bless,
Jacob Shetron
Youth Ministry Associate
