Youth Missions

At First Baptist Church of Big Spring, we greatly value the commission that we have been given by Christ to be missionaries both at home and abroad.  Below you will find information about the multiple opportunities that our students have to impact the world both here and abroad. 

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; 

and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." 

~Acts 1:8~

Graceworks Alaska

JUly 17-24, 2022

Come and join us next summer for an incredible mission trip to Anchorage, Alaska.  Anchorage is a city of great diversity.  There are over 100 languages spoken in  Anchorage schools.  From the GraceWorks website:

"Partnering with local churches here, we facilitate mission volunteers and church teams working direct with non-churched children, youth and adults in local parks -- feeding meals to the hungry, backyard Bible school, sports, games and crafts. Most of the neighborhoods we work in are amazingly multi-ethnic. Three out of the top five most diverse communities in America are in Anchorage, Alaska and we work in all three. Our goal is nothing less than a multiplying, church planting Jesus Movement here in Alaska."

GraceWorks is a cooperative mission program between Alaskan Baptist Churches and the North American Mission Board.  We intend to make this a partnership between our church and GraceWorks

We will be working in parks and neighborhoods using music, games and Bible stories to teach children and youth about the transforming message of the Gospel.  this trip isn't about painting and building and roofing, but rather about relational ministry.  Talking and interacting with people and sharing the great news about Jesus.

This trip is open to youth, families, college and Adults.  Please sign up at the youth table in the back hallway or in the youth room.  If you have any questions, please contact our youth pastor, Roger Stafford, for more information.  

Cost is $700 plus airfare.  We are working to secure the best possible rates for flights.  We will begin fundraising very soon, so get signed up now for this incredible opportunity.

Campus Missions

Every day we send out missionaries.  Each and every day during the school year you go to the biggest mission field in America.  Your School

According to the Barna Research Group, 94% of people make a decision to follow Jesus before they turn 18.  It is more than important for us to reach out to our friends who don't know Jesus,.  It is imperative.   Jesus said to us:

"I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields!  They are ripe for harvest."  

~John 4:35~

Our call with Campus Missions is to equip and encourage our students to be the hands and feet and voice of Christ in Algebra and English; on the field and on the court; in the band hall and in the cafeteria.  

Our goal is that every student in our  ministry would take every opportunity to tell the transforming and life changing message of Jesus to every person that God places in their lives.  To this end we will be training up leaders to be disciple makers and to be about the business of Kingdom Expansion.
