We call our youth ministry the “Youth Family” because we strive to create a safe space for students to be who they are while discovering and forming new pieces of their identities.
Just like a family, we see each other at our best and at our worst, but we continue to love one another and we share life together. We love discipleship, fellowship and social activities like mission trips, youth camps, and annual retreats. Choir, group games, shared meals, and hanging out are all important parts of our time together!
Our Youth Family is made up of youth from grades 6 through 12, adult volunteers, college volunteers, and staff. If you are looking for a place to belong, come give the Youth Family at First Baptist Church Greenville a shot!

Youth Trips & Retreats
Throughout the year, we get away from the business of school, sports, extracurriculars, and summer schedules to just spend time together. In the summer, we join other churches at Unidiversity Youth Camp and our high schoolers embark on their mission trip. During the school year, middle schoolers have a weekend-long missions blitz, we welcome new sixth graders at the merge Retreat, and we all get away for our Fall Retreat over Labor Day weekend.
Each of these retreats and trips create core memories for our whole Youth Family. In addition to having lots of fun, we also get to dig deeper into Bible study, discipleship, and missions – all essential topics for spiritual formation that are easier to explore when it’s just us, on retreat..
We love all the time we get to spend together, on regularly-scheduled Wednesdays and Sundays, but we find that the students who choose to travel with us for extended periods of time grow closer to one another and closer to God. If you’re looking to dive deep into the Youth Family, your faith journey, or just friendship and community, we hope you will travel with us!
