About Us

The Student Ministry of First Baptist Opelika exists to partner with families to help students grow in a personal relationship with God (walk); develop Christ-centered community (love); and engage the world around them with the truth of the Gospel (shine). walk | love | shine

The Student Ministry of First Baptist Opelika consists of grades 7-12. We have weekly Bible studies, times of worship, and small group discipleship. We also have special events including mission trips, camps, disciple now's, and other fun events. Each of these elements work together to help students grow in their faith, and become life long followers of Christ. In all that we do, our focus is to lift high the name of Jesus. He is truly the center of all that takes place within the Student Ministry. 

Teenage years can be difficult for both students and their parents. We want to be a safe place where students can come and learn about Jesus, have fellowship with other students, and spend time with caring adults. We also want to partner with parents and help equip them to disciple their students. Our desire is for all students to feel welcome and included in all that we do. If you're new to the area, or looking for a place to get connected, come join us! We would love to get to know you!
