Metropolitan's Approach

At Metropolitan Baptist Church our Youth and Young Adult Ministry provides a Christ Centered, word based, youth focused ministry that reflects biblical standards and principles centered around the Word of God.  Our mission is to provide a wholesome all inclusive ministry consisting of Dance, Arts, Drama, Instrumental, Devotional Worship & Praise, Nursery programs, Prayer and Word Based relevant ministry that will be attractive to all youth ranging from babies to young adults.

A Strong Foundation

The Ministry is first and foremost set upon a Strong Foundation and that is the Word of God. For a house built on a solid foundation shall stand but all other ground is sinking sand.  The ministries for our Youth require youth engagement, youth focus and parental support/commitment. We will bridge the gap and work with parents to enhance their child’s overall spiritual development and growth by staying connected by means of communication in all facets of Youth Ministry.

At Metropolitan Baptist Chuch we believe in Bringing Families Together around the Word of God.  In our Youth and Young Adult Ministry, we believe in you child. Let's start building your child’s personal relationship with God.
