Ed Newton” I have had the privilege throughout the years to see the behind the scenes of these events, therefore, I can honestly attest that the men and women who serve in these roles have the ‘kingdom of God’ being advanced as the highest priority.”

“GBC Youth Ministries was invaluable to me during my time in youth ministry.  From Christ-centered camps and events, to effective ministry training, to day-to-day encouragement, GBC Youth Ministries made me a better disciple and a better disciple-maker.”

Matt Peek

Pastor – First Baptist Church, Pelham, GA

“Having been in Georgia now for over 11 years as a youth pastor, I can’t imagine doing ministry this long without the encouragement and support I’ve found through the Georgia Baptist Mission Board youth ministries staff and programs they lead. They have a clear mission to love and disciple teenagers for Jesus. I’d trust them with my own 2 teenagers at any event they’re leading.
