From Our Youth Pastor

It is said by many both in the secular and in the Christian world that this generation is lost. I beg to differ. In fact this generation is not lost, instead they’ve found what many have lost and that’s a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Instead of judging this generation let’s figure out what is inside of them and embrace their creativity as the Lord uses them to take his word across this nation.

It is our job to train, educate, motivate and encourage our youth to do better for the cause of Christ. It’s now time for a modern day Martin Luther King, Jr., a new Michael Jordan or Mahalia Jackson. It’s a new season and a new day, and it’s our job to help our kids realize that God is on their side. Pray for this Youth Ministry as we work hard to develop our new and upcoming leaders.

Peace and Blessings,
Min. Stephen Turner

Our Mission

The St. Matthews Baptist Church Youth Ministry program is designed to prepare students for effective ministry from elementary, middle school and senior high school, within the context of the church organizations.

We reach out to the youth with the love of God as revealed to us in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our job is to help the youth grow as individuals while exploring ideas, values, and faith within the context of a supportive community of peers and adults.

the Glory of God.
