Summer 2019, our students who have completed at least one year of grades 9-12 will be going to Mission FUGE. We will be going to the Ridgecrest Conference Center, July 15-19, 2018. Every year, this trip is a life changing for our students! We leave early Monday morning, July 15, and return the evening of Friday, July 19.

Total cost for this years camp is $330, and a $50 deposit is due anytime after registering to hold your spot. It is going to be an amazing time of worship, bible study and fellowship for our high school students and the adult volunteers who will be going. Daily as they go into the community to do mission work, we know these times are life-changing! If you have any questions, please contact Bro. Andy, or the church office. Join with us as we pray expectantly for the work God is going to do through this event!

After signing up, you will be able to pay weekly or monthly for the trip, to help spread the cost out over the whole year in order to make it less of a burden on your family!

Who We Are

Immanuel Baptist Church’s youth ministry is known as the #412StudentLife. We firmly believe that our students from sixth grade through Senior’s in High School, when they give their lives to Jesus Christ and accept the free gift of salvation, are the church! We believe our students are capable of fulfilling the message of 1 Timothy 4:12.

We believe that if our students embrace God’s calling on their lives even as they are young that they can set the example for other believers with their lives, setting the example as stated in scripture!

What We Do

We have been blessed with the most amazing students, families and devoted youth workers. Our ministry serves students as they begin sixth grade in middle school and goes all the way through their senior year in high school. Evangelism and discipleship is the key! Our most important relationship is a saving relationship in Jesus Christ! These students are discerning God’s call on their life. We give them an opportunity to live that out, not just sit in the background.


We meet on Sunday mornings at two different times. There is a small group for everybody from sixth grade through Senior’s in High School. Our first Sunday school meets at 9:15 a.m. during the Contemporary Worship Service, and our second Sunday school hour meets at 10:45 a.m. during our Traditional Worship Service.

Our mid-week service meets Wednesdays for fellowship from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. Our worship service starts immediately after that at 6:15 p.m. and gets out at 7:15 p.m.


We meet in the The REFINERY. The REFINERY is in the basement below the sanctuary in the main building on our campus at 2351 Mahan Dr. Malachi 3:3 says "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness".


All of our events and signup links will be posted below. This includes Discipleship events such as DNOW weekends, winter retreats, summer camps, weekly fellowship events, and most importantly, opportunities for our students to serve others!
