Ministry Overview


We exist to glorify God by reaching students for Christ. We teach what it means to be reconciled and recreated into His image. We intentionally connect with and equip students through Bible-centered teaching, while also showing them what it looks like to be gospel-centered disciples of Jesus Christ.   


As with all programming for minors, all regular volunteers have been screened via a background check and have been trained regarding best practices for safety and security.  Our Pastor of Student Ministries is Jacob Boyd (bio page).

Sunday Mornings

9:15AM-10:15AM:  During this hour, students begin with snacks and are then divided into age-graded classes to learn biblical truths about God, Christ, and how they should live in light of the gospel.  We have a great team of committed teachers that invest each week in our students during the Sunday morning Bible study hour.

10:30AM-11:30AM:  Our students participate in the entirety of the corporate worship service each week, at times playing significant roles as volunteers.  

Sunday Nights

6:00PM-8:00PM:  On Sunday nights our students have their large group gatherings.  This includes a time of organized games, worship through song, Bible study, and small groups.  Sunday nights are a great time to bring a friend and to experience community and grow in knowledge of and love for God.  

Wednesday Nights

6:45-8:00PM:  On Wednesday nights during the school year, our student ministry meets to have fellowship, eat pizza, and discuss what it looks like to be a disciple of Christ. The students are learning what discipleship is all about to strengthen their own faith and to learn how to disciple others. Wednesday nights are a valuable time of relationship building, spiritual growth, and practical servant leadership.  

Special Events

Our student ministry participates in numerous special events, retreats, and mission projects/camps. Some of these projects are done in partnership with the local Northstar Church Network of Northern Virginia and other events are just for FBC Springfield students.  Fun events include REC Weekend (Click here for pictures of REC Weekend 2020), game nights, and escape room adventures. Additionally, our students regularly serve in the broader life of the church through events like VBS and the Easter Egg Hunt. Last summer, our students participated in MFuge Summer Camp @ Carson-Newman University in Jefferson, TN. Stay tuned for the next major trip!
