We’re honored to have an opportunity to partner with a ministry called Whirlwind Missions, located in Atlanta, GA. We will be working with missionaries Tim Cummings and Ashley Kendall – two believers who are absolutely passionate for spreading the Gospel. Pastor Jeff, Shane Kyles and many other FBCO members have partnered with Whirlwind Ministries in the past and have loved the experience that they offer for students. 


Some of our ministry opportunities include working in several apartment complexes, building relationships with families through hosting VBS and other community oriented projects. Our prayer is that we would have the chance to share the Gospel with people from many cultures and backgrounds. 


A few of the week nights, we’ll be leading a worship service/community block party in those same apartment complexes. We’ll also participate in some whole group service projects. Since we will be in the Atlanta area, we will attend church at Passion City Church, then go to a Braves game Sunday afternoon!


We’ll depart from FBCO on Saturday, June 2 around lunch and return the night of

June 7. This trip is open to students 7th-12th grade.


We will be staying in the Clarion Hotel a few minutes from Whirlwind Mission’s main church partner, First Baptist Doraville. The cost of the trip is $350 for the first student, and $300 for every additional sibling.


Registration for the Atlanta Mission Trip is now open, and will close on Easter Sunday, April 1.

We are so thankful that our students have the opportunity to engage in Gospel-centered conversations with people from all different religions and backgrounds in hopes to reach them with the Good News of Jesus. This is a very unique chance for students to experience international missions without even leaving the United States!

Parent Meeting:

life groups

Life Groups are a crucial part of who we are as a Student Ministry. The Bible stresses the importance of having others hold us accountable and walk with us through the Christian life.

Life Groups exist for three main purposes:

•discipleship: having an older believer being intentional and modeling a personal growing walk with Christ

•accountability: helping students understand and live in obedience to God’s word with the help of their peers

•relationships: showing students they have fellow believers that love and care about them

Life Groups meet on Sunday nights at 6 pm at FBCO.

    A retreat to help middle school students grow in their personal walk with Jesus and grow in community with each other. The theme of the Weekend was “Views”. We used the story of the Prodigal Son to help the students see what is filling their view. Ryan Snell & Logan Creasy led the weekend.

  • Summer camp 2016

    We had an amazing week at camp in Ocoee, TN. Several students made decisions to follow Jesus with their lives. Our theme was "Ascend" and we studied the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7.  Watch our recap video belwo

  • Disciple Now 2016

    Check out the highlight video

    With “Relationship Goals” as the theme of the weekend, Andy Blanks taught us what it looks like to have godly relationships with our boyfriend/girlfriend, our parents, our friend groups, and how to have a healthy relationship with God. Ryan Snell and his band did a great job of leading us in worship. 

  • summer camp 2015


    Watch the highlight video on the media page

    We had an incredible Summer Camp experience in Ocoee, TN. We zip-lined through the Smoky Mountains, rock climbed, and white water rafted down the Ocoee River, and we had times of worship and Bible study, learning about how Jesus illuminates our lives. We had 20 students make decisions to surrender their lives to Christ!

  • miami mission trip

    Multiply Miami

    Watch the highlight video on the media page

    Our students and adults were the hands and feet of Jesus in Miami, FL. Some highlights of the trip were definitely singing at the Miami Rescue Mission to 200+ men, prayer walks at the port, singing at the Florida Baptist Children’s Home, building and experiencing community among the youth group, and we can’t forget the countless dozens of Krispy Kreme donuts that students passed out each day. Working alongside Christ Centered Church and helping them spread the word about their new church coming to the Doral community was an eye-opening experience to many of our students. It was a reminder of how blessed we are to live in an area with many Bible believing/teaching churches.

  • disciple now 2015

    Community Weekend

    Watch the highlight video on the media page

    Disciple Now 2015 was a weekend full of community building and a time of learning and experiencing what the church should look like, according to Jesus. Our D-Now speaker, Adam Robinson, lead us through Scripture and helped us see what it looked like to have a Student Ministry rooted in Christ, and how to love each other with a sacrificial love. The reality is that we gravitate to being friends with people who are just like us. We invest our time into people that have similar interests, hobbies, goals, and personalities. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but when we close ourselves off to people who are too different or people who are unlike us, we aren’t loving people like Jesus commands us to. The bottom line is we need each other. Jesus says that everyone has different strengths and weaknesses and that if we are a unified body, we will work more effectively for His kingdom.

  • Middle School mania

    We had a blast at Middle School Mania this year! This event is for 7th-8th grade students. We had inflatables, pizza, dodgeball tournament, games, prizes and giveaways!
