Hello and welcome to the G412 Youth Ministry of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church!

The purpose of this ministry is to build youth of purpose, power, and praise. The knowledge of God's word will empower our youth to stand strong in the face of the many challenges of life. We offer  worship services tailored to their level, small group bible study and Sunday school classes, and ongoing relevant events and activities by grade level that give them experiences that last a lifetime. Our main focus is to ensure that our youth learn and grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We invite all parents and youth to yoke up with this ministry as we press forward in the kingdom of God!
