Ministries / Students

    Our aim in Student Ministries is first and foremost to glorify God by coming alongside the families of GIBC in the shepherding of their children.  We firmly believe that the only means by which hearts can be challenged and changed is through the Word of God and therefore everything we do as a ministry centers around the faithful teaching and applying of scriptural truth to the lives of the students.  That is why we offer two formal teaching times per week on Sunday morning and Wednesday night, as well as Wednesday night small group time, and many opportunities for discipleship and counseling.  There are also numerous events throughout the year, such as; retreats, summer camp, outreaches, and various activities.  All of these events are meant to exalt Christ and His Word as well as build relationships between the leaders and students.  As a leadership team in Student Ministries we are committed to serving, loving, and pouring into the lives of the students the Lord places under our care. 

    We meet twice a week:
    Sunday Morning
    We begin our Sunday morning sessions together in the Southwest Fellowship Hall then split into the Jr. High and Sr. High groups. 
    Jr. High Sunday School: 10:45 am; South Fellowship Hall
    Sr. High Sunday School: 10:45 am; South Fellowship Hall 

    Wednesday Evening 
    Jr./Sr. High Bible Study: 6:30 - 8:30 pm; Room 205
