I am very excited to share what God has been doing in our student ministry at Second Baptist Houston West Campus this year.
We have really focused this year on creating an environment that teenagers get excited to invite their friends to. Both on Sunday morning and Wednesday nights at LIVE.
LIVE is our “Open Door” to our student ministry that happens on Wednesday nights. We have created a space that students can invite their friends to, and can experience God in an amazing way. We do this through worship; with Biblical teaching and a variety of music led with a full band.
The goal of the entire night is that God is glorified through all that we do, from the lighting cues during the walk in, to the final song they hear as they walk out. We have worked hard to be excellent in every detail of the night. We believe that the more prayed for and prepared we are for each night the more opportunities we have to see God move.
Each and every space that we have people come into we do an invitation for people to accept Christ for the first time. Then we meet with each student as well as follow up with them and encourage them to take their first step in obedience to the Lord through baptism.
So far this year from October 1st we have seen 222 teenagers baptized on Wednesday nights & Sunday morning. We also have an amazing summer camp called Beach Retreat that we saw 244 students baptized.
This year total evangelism Student ministry at Second Baptist Houston – West Campus since October 1st.
Junior High – 123 BR – 137 outside Beach Retreat Camp
High School – 121 BR – 85 outside Beach Retreat Camp
222 – Total Outside of Beach Retreat 244 – At Beach Retreat Summer Camp 466 – Total Baptisms
This is has been an amazing year so far, and it is all through the students inviting their friends to church and God changing their life. Then those who accepted Christ and started to invite their friends and the ripple effect continuing on.
This video shows it perfectly, these are students from our ministry who have personally seen God work in their lives, through a simple invitation.
