Open Door Baptist Youth

Calling All Teens!

Grab your Bible and bring your friends and come join us at Open Door Baptist Church.  We are raising the bar of excellence and excitement in youth ministry!  Teens, you need the specific instruction of Bible truth that is offered in the ODBC Teen Ministry to help you be all that God wants you to be.  The Youth ministry welcomes all students from 6th grade to 12th grade.

Youth Ministry Highlights

Edification not Entertainment in Youth Ministry
We believe in raising the bar of excellence in Youth Ministry!  The next generation is in great need of God's eternal truths, which are found in the Bible.  They need edification, not entertainment to become all that God desires them to be.   At the Open Door Baptist Church teen ministry we focus on the Bible, the Church, the souls in need of Christ, and the great work that God gave to the local New Testament church to do.

Sunday Bible Hour
Life is hard by God is Good!  God has given us in the Bible all the truth and help we need to overcome all of life's challenges.  Come join us at 9:45am every Sunday morning for an in-depth time of Bible instruction that is directed right at the issues that teens face every day.  

Wednesday Teen Time
The entire youth department meets together on Wednesday evenings for a mid-week Bible boost!  We meet at 6:45pm for a time of Bible study followed by a time of fellowship and fun activities.

Teen Bible Time | Teens Reaching Teens
As an outreach to our local Middle and High Schools we host an after school Bible study as well as a soul winning outreach during the school year. 

Teen Missions Project
The teens of Open Door have a heart for missions and missionaries!  Each year they select a missionary family to specifically support and pray for.  We communicate regularly with that family though skype and letters to stay connected to them.
