PFBC Student Ministry exists to partner with parents to raise their teens to be worshipping, evangelizing, learning, and loving disciples of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe

The Pickens First Baptist Church Student Ministry is working to change the culture of our community. We want to see students come to Jesus, serve in the church and enter into adulthood equipped to be Christian leaders.

Sunday School

Sunday school for youth is at 9:15am located in the Xchange. We meet as a large group for prayer and announcements. We then divide up into the following small groups:
  • Co-Ed Middle School: Taught by Chip Dunn, Pamela Clarkson, and Jennifer Payne
  • Co-Ed High School: Taught by Bruce Anders, Renee Anders, and Lynn Williams

Sunday Night Worship

Our Sunday Night Worship begins at 5:00 PM and lasts until 6:30 PM. This is a time of worship, led by our student praise band, and focused Biblical teaching. During the 2022-2023 school year, we will be looking at the life of Christ and how we should emulate him. 

Wednesday Nights

We have discipleship groups that meet every Wednesday night from 6:30pm-7:30pm in the Xchange. Each session has
a video that is watched together and is followed by smaller discipleship groups. 
  • Co-Ed Middle School D-Group: Taught by Jeremy and Emily Simmons 
  • Co-Ed High School D-Group: Taught by Colton and Lauren Ashley
