College Ministry takes on a unique twist at First Baptist as the church becomes a laboratory for young people to be equipped and empowered to serve others in Christ’s Name now, this moment, today.

You don’t have to put off doing what you love to do until after college. You can make a difference immediately.

The young people in our church are not simply a snapshot of what the church will look like tomorrow. The young people in our congregation represent the church of today. Our College Students and 20 Somethings are part of a cadre of hope and enthusiasm, leading our After School Ministry, serving as camp counselors in our comprehensive Summer Explorers Ministry, leading in worship, teaching our children and teenagers, and shaping the vision and direction of our church’s ministry.

At First Baptist, we are proud to report that the vast majority of our church’s paid leadership are under the age of 25. We believe our young people make us strong—today and tomorrow.

Pastoral Ministry Internships

Consider serving with us while you are at Western Carolina University, Southwestern Commmunity College, in seminary or during your summers between semesters. You have something to offer our world and we want to equip you to do it. Even better, the relationships that you make along the way will enrich your life with an abundance of laughter, learnings, encouragement and support.
