About

DESIGNED WITH TEENAGERS IN MIND

As the student ministry of First Baptist Tulsa, we exist to help students begin and grow a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.  We do this by providing weekly and yearly programming that is both engaging and purposeful.

Each week students are encouraged to participate in our student worship service {ELEVATE} and our midweek small groups {CGroups}.

We also provide students with the opportunity to attend yearly events that are designed to help students build community, express worship and go deeper in their relationship with Christ.  Highlights in our calendar include Falls Creek, Winter Blast, Mission Trip(s) and Fall Retreat.

So if you are a teenager or know a teenager in the Tulsa metro that is looking for a fun, welcoming and exciting place to grow in their faith, we would love to serve you in any way possible.

#LIVETHEMISSION

2016 Student Ministry Mission Trips

 

Our student ministry is participating in several different missions opportunities in 2016.  While we do have ongoing mission activities throughout the year, we also offer three unique mission events during Spring Break.  Outside of camp, these trips are the most life changing moments our teenagers experience. If you are considering a mission trip in 2016, we would love to have you participate with us! 

 

Our international mission trips are designed around helping plant a new church in the region we go to and sharing the gospel.  Our teenagers undergo a 4 week evangelism training course to prepare for the trip.  Once on the ground, our students share their faith door-to-door and face-to-face.  We have watched these experiences change our students, and they return home different. 

 Guatemala Mission Trip: March 12-18

 Click HERE to see the highlight video of our 2014 trip. 

 

We also offered a shorter and closer mission trip designed specifically for middle school students.  This trip focused on serving a small rural church in Oklahoma through work projects.  

 Calvin Mission Trip: March 12-14

 Click HERE to see the highlight video of our 2013 trip. 

For those unable to travel over Spring Break, we offered a three day missions project right here in Tulsa.  Students met from Noon – 4:00pm each day where they engaged in a variety of service projects.  They finished Wednesday by eating dinner and watching a movie together. 

 Mission Tulsa: March 14-16
