Exalting His Name, Exulting in His Son,
Equipping His people, Evangelizing His world

FUEL: A Student Ministry

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." -1 Peter 2:9

FUEL, the student ministry at First Baptist Church Cherokee, exists to exalt God and engage teenagers with the word of truth in order that they may discover the supreme joy of knowing Jesus Christ. It is our practical goal to evangelize, equip, and encourage teens at this phase of life.

We evangelize lost teens so that they may embrace the worth and beauty of Jesus Christ.

We equip believing teens that they may grow in the grace, knowledge, and joy of Jesus Christ.

We encourage believing teens to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, and gentleness in their daily struggle to live out the surpassing beauty and worth of Jesus Christ. 

Student ministry is always an adventure in grace at FBCC! All 7th-12th grade students gather for worship with the praise band and weekly messages from Brother Steve on Wednesday nights. We offer Sunday School for teens on Sunday mornings and Drama Team practice on Sunday evenings. Throughout the year students are engaged with conferences, retreats, and various opportunities to minister.
