About Our Youth Ministry

LGBC Youth Minister - Andy Walters

Andy and Kristy Walters –  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?

Come and watch how our Youth worship our Lord!
