About LGBC Youth Ministry

LGBC Youth Minister - Andy Walters

Andy and Kristy Walters – LGBC Student Minister

The youth ministry of Lynn Garden Baptist Church exists to partner with parents in teaching and showing students how to live a godly life. We accomplish this by coming together weekly to study God’s Word, traveling to various events, providing outreach activities at the church, and engaging the students themselves in service. 

Being part of a good youth group is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things for a young person to do! And it all happens within a safe and positive environment where students can benefit from peer and mentor relationships, biblical teaching, and people who genuinely care about their lives. What better place for teens to spend their time?

Student-Led Worship Services

Our youth sometimes lead the worship services and they do a great job!  On Youth Sunday the youth lead the worship service, so the old way of doing things is gone and the new way has begun. The music is new and there is a different energy in the room.
Come and watch how the LGBC Youth worship our Lord!
