Youth (7-12)

LogoConnecting Our Youth to Christ

Twelve:2 is our youth ministry here at Grace Baptist Church. Our goal for our teens is to "not be conformed to the pattern of the world, but transformed."  Our desire is to connect teens to Christ and His Church in their teen years, so when they go out into the world they will be ready to live out their faith.

We offer a variety programs and training opportunities for teens in grades 7-12. We invite you and your teen to visit us on Sunday or Wednesday night to get a better sense of what we are about.  You can get directions to Grace Baptist here


Our Youth Ministry Purpose

We want every teen who engages with our youth ministry to:


the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.


into committed disciples of Jesus Christ.


spiritual leadership in their church, school, and home. 


into the world, making disciples in their sphere of influence. 

Sunday Morning Bible Study - 9:00-10:00am


Grace Baptist Youth Bible StudySundays are a time when our youth ministry comes together to learn and explore God's Word. Here is where students learn how to apply God's Word to their daily lives. Teens are currently studying the book of Ephesians.

We currently have a class for students in 7th-12th grades. 



Wednesday Youth Group - 6:45-8:00pm

Wednesday nights are full of worship, games and applicational Bible study. Our youth group wraps up each meeting with small group discussion and prayer.

This is the night where our entire Youth Ministry comes together to connect through Christ. 

Growth Opportunities

Monthly Activities - In addition to weekly activities we also have monthly activities to help connect, grow, and serve together.  Some of our favorite activities include:  Scioto Hills (winter retreat), Service days in Cleveland and Refuge of Hope, and Paintball at Camp CHOF.


Leadership Training - Many of our teens also serve during the school year through our "Teens on Mission" program.  Through this opportunity, teens work side by side with adult leaders in the Awana program, Sunday School, and technology to develope leadership skills.


Summer Trips - We alternate between mission trips and adventure trips for our summer trips.  In recent years our teens have been to Baltimore (helping with a church plant), West Virginia (rafting), and Canada (adventure trip).
