Student Ministries

We are dedicated to providing a place for students to connect with God, with other students, and with committed leaders that are dedicated to seeing students grow closer in their relationship with Jesus and equipping them to be the spiritual leaders of tomorrow. We believe that you can't do life alone, and that our students are at a unique time of life where they can grasp the gospel and the impact of having Jesus in their lives.

We provide a place where students can be honest, open, heard, accepted, and equipped to live as a light for Jesus. We do this by...

Reaching Students
  • By extending the love of Jesus to friends
  • By being a light to those in darkness
  • By igniting the passion for God in each other
Teaching Students
  • By increasing in knowledge of God's Word
  • By growing in the character of Jesus
Equipping Students
  • By serving the church
  • By serving the community
  • By serving each other and the world

Student Ministries

Our Student Ministries are 7th through 12th grade. Wednesdays are Student Event Nights and Sunday evenings are Bible Study Nights. We also have Discipleship Circles for those students wanting to dig deeper in a smaller group setting with an adult mentor.

Mission San Antonio

This upcoming summer we will be heading to inner city San Antonio to restore homes for elderly, disabled, and low-income residents living in substandard housing. This will be a 6 day long mission to share the love and grace of Jesus as we seek to meet the physical need of home repair. While serving those in need, students will not only learn about, but live out the call Jesus gave us in Matthew 25 - to serve those in need. Although the trip is geared towards helping others, much of our time will be fun in nature, with recreation times and a full day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Why Mission Not Camp?

Camp and missions alike provide wonderful environments for friends to have fun and learn about Christ. Great worship, great speakers, friendship bonding, and fun are all key facets to both trips. The main difference is that while camp hosts recreation, missions host serving those in need. There are great positives to both, and both are very healthy for spiritual growth.

The past year our students have been learning about the life of Christ, how he lived, and ways to grow in him. In all of this, there has been a constant emphasis on becoming like him and living out our faith. This summer we wanted to provide an opportunity for students to experience first had the needs around us and how we can live out what we are learning.

Who Will We Be Working With?

Blueprint Ministries is the nonprofit organization that will be hosting us and leading us. They partner with volunteers from across the nation to provide servant leadership training for youth and adults while restoring urban San Antonio homes for elderly, disabled and low-income residents. Blueprint strives to create a safe camp environment for both students and adults. Blueprint is a state-licensed youth camp, which means they have yearly inspections of the facilities, policies, procedures and paperwork. FBCLG will be joining 4 other churches from around Texas, but will only be with our group at worksites.

What Kind of Work?

The main goal of the repairs is to make homes warmer, safer and drier. The projects can consist of anything from roof repair, floor repair, and drywall repair to painting, wheel chair ramp construction and bathroom updates. Blueprint Ministries accepts applications from homeowners who live in substandard housing, live inside Loop 410 and own their home. All work is done without a fee, but homeowners are encouraged to participate if physically able.

When Is The Trip?

June 16th – June 21st . We will depart the morning of Sunday, June 16th and return in the evening of Friday, June 21st.

Facilities

Blueprints facilities are at the intersection of I-10 and I-37 in south central San Antonio and can accommodate up to 140 people. There are 3 dorm rooms for males and 3 dorm rooms for females. Blueprint provides the beds; each student is responsible for linens. The entire facility is self-contained with dorms, dining, recreation, and worship all in one location. The food is very good and the staff are wonderful.

Cost

The 2019 cost is $350.00 per person. This covers all lodging, food, tools, materials, programming, recreation, and a t-shirt. Students will be guaranteed a space with the completion of the application and upon receiving a $50 deposit per person. Space is limited.

We will host a drive thru dinner fundraiser in the spring to help cover this cost. Anyone going on the trip will be required to participate in the fundraiser. This includes selling tickets and hosting the dinner. The amount of funds raised per person will directly reflect the number of tickets sold by that person.

Please contact Seth Gordon for more information or you may call him at 979-220-9691. 

Discipleship Circles

Senior high students discover the story God has written for you. We believe each story is breathtaking when we encounter Jesus and His plan for our lives. 

Student Outreach Night

This is a time to just have fun, fellowship and invite your friends. Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm.
