middle and high school students

Welcome to the Student Ministry of First Baptist Church of Bryson City! We want to partner with families in providing a safe and encouraging environment for the faith formation of students.

on mission

Students are on mission at home and at school every day!  We look for ways to be faithful witnesses to God's love in all we are doing. 

Each summer we alternate between regional Mission Trip and Retreat experiences. In the meantime we emphasize regularity in local missions, personal retreats, corporate worship, and private devotion.

Upperclassmen can participate in the Keystone Mission Experience, an international or in country cross-cultural experience designed to integrate student learning with faithful hands-on action.
