Meet Youth Pastor - Philip Melton

Our mission as the youth ministry of FBCJ is to create Bold, Confident, Disciples of Jesus Christ who are prepared to be Servant Leaders in an ever changing world. 

If I had to think of a word to describe our youth ministry here at FBCJ, it would be family. This is the type of atmosphere we desire to create at each of our student worship services, Bible studies, and ministry activities. So come and be our guest - you have a place here!

Our youth ministry is built around seven foundations that we desire each student be firmly grounded in by the time they graduate High School.

1) Faith that is Real - "Trusting in God"

2) Spiritual Disciplines - "Digging a Spiritual Foundation"

3) Boundaries in Relationships - "Establishing Biblical Moral Limits"

4) Healthy Friendships - "Choosing the Right Friends"

5) Wise Choices - "Making Wise Decisions"

6) God's Authority - Finding Freedom in God's Authority"

7) Putting Others First - "Serving Others"

If you have any questions about our Youth Ministry or if you need information please e-mail me at

  • Large Group Teaching and Worship

    Sometimes following God feels a little complicated. With so many rules to remember, prayers to pray, and guidelines for how we’re supposed to live, it’s easy for it all to feel overwhelming. In this series, as we look at how Jesus kept faith simple, we’ll see that it’s really all about doing one thing—the greatest thing.

    Sundays, 5:30 - 7:00 pm in the Youth House

    During  Recharge (5 Weeks August - September 2018)

  • Coming Soon... "I Have Questions"

    Got questions? Whether we’re asking them out loud or swirling them around silently in our minds, the truth is, we all have questions. In this short series, we’ll address two of these questions head on. Because when it comes to tough questions, it’s time to start talking.

    Week 1 Race: Because of Jesus, we can be one when we’re not the same.

    Week 2 Self-Harm: Hiding grows harm, but honesty helps heal

    Sundays - 5:30 - 7:00 in the Youth House
