Youth Ministry

The Youth Ministry at GFBC is focused on students who are in 6th-12th grade.  Our staff is comprised of myself, my wife, and other volunteer leaders approved by church leadership.  It is my desire as the Youth Pastor to see life-changing growth in our students and their families.  I believe this happens through providing an atmosphere where Christ is our primary example, where we learn and grow together.  Our goal is to build Christ centered relationships with youth and their families, accepting them where they are, serving them with love, and encouraging them to walk with Jesus!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    -Youth Pastor, Michael Calquhoun

We meet Sundays from 9:00am-10:00am for Sunday School and Tuesdays from 6:30pm-8:30pm for Youth Group (not October 15th or November 26th) at Gladstone First Baptist Church!  Download a Youth release form
