“Growing students in Christ through personal relationships with Him and His creation”

We are a ministry of Park Hill Baptist Church that reaches out to middle school and high school students. Our goal is to reach students and grow them in Christ through personal relationships with Him and His creation. Many ways that we do this is through corporate worship services on Sunday mornings with the entire body of the church, and on Wednesday nights with a worship service just for students. We also have small groups for the students to get plugged in better with more personal relationships with each other and with their leaders. These small groups happen on Sunday mornings in Sunday School, and on Sunday nights with a more in depth Bible study. We also have a brief time on Wednesday nights for small groups.

What’s the good word?

This section is dedicated to be a snapshot of whats happening with the youth at PHBC

During the Sunday School hour we are going through the a curriculum created by Pastor Craig that takes the students into a deeper application of the previous weeks sermon. This is allowing the students to dig deeper and really grasp the message that was preached the week before. Stacia and Luke are leading out in this study!

Wednesday nights are BREAKOUT Nights. We are, for the second time, doing a breakout study. This is breaking us out of our regular Wednesday night routine and taking us into small group classes. Students get to pick from one of four classes being taught for a 4 week period. After the 4 weeks are up there will be a review week and then they pick another class! Breakout classes being offered this year are… Parables, Witness Training, World Religions, and Spiritual Gifts.

The youth have decided to take a break from the Gospel Project Curriculum and are joining Pastor Craig and the adults for his “Word of God” series on Sunday nights.




We want the youth to be ROOTED in the love Christ before anything else! After being ROOTED in God’s love and starting to understand just how amazing that love is (see Eph 3:17-19: our theme verse) the natural outflow of that will be worship, discipleship and spiritual growth!



The youth’s summer mission trip to Houston went great! We got to experience so many different forms of ministry while helping spread the gospel and the Word! Hanging out and working with the Church in the Center was a huge blessing and we can not thank Stephen Ray enough for hosting our group! Please take a few minutes to look at the pictures below and ask a student about his/her experience!


We had an amazing time at Bogg Springs this year! We took a group of 18 students and sponsors. Over the course of the week we studied on what it meant to be a “TRADER.” We saw what it took to trade in the American Dream for a life the pursues Christ and His Kingdom. During camp one youth came to know the Lord as Savior and several young ladies make commitments to pursue ministry! Praise God!
