passionate about Jesus Christ
Elevate Student Ministry is for any student from 6th grade to 12th grade who has a desire to grow and know more about Jesus! Students today are going through life much differently than before. With social media, television/radio, and peers, often times students struggle to discover who they are created to be. Our vision is to help students find their identity in Christ and our goal is for students to live a life on mission for Christ and fulfill the Great Commission given to us in Matthew 28:16-20. This is “why”. Throughout the year, we dive into scripture and enter into deep conversation about the gospel in our small groups; we worship through music and song; and we believe in serving in the church and outside the church.
Each month, we have “Game Night,” which is an opportunity for students to come and relax, have fun, and fellowship with one another. In the fall, Junior High students have the opportunity to attend our Junior High Retreat, and the High School students enjoy the High School Retreat in the spring.

Youth Minister Jared Holmes
Hey friends! My name is Jared Holmes and I am the Youth Minister here at FBC. I have been in ministry for many years, starting around the age of 16 as a volunteer in the church I grew up in, Calvary Baptist Church, in Odessa
Texas. I went on to become the Children’s Ministry intern at Life Change Baptist church in Odessa Texas and served there until God called me to go to Dallas Baptist University. While at DBU, I served as a Children’s
Ministry intern at the Oaks Baptist Church in Grande Prairie. I served at the Oaks Baptist church until God provided an opportunity to serve here in Bridgeport. I served here as an interim Youth Minister for a few months
and became the full time Youth Minister in October of 2015.
