For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach. Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:10-12
Our student ministry is called the Revolution Student Ministry because it seeks to do more than make a change, but rather to make a powerful and dramatic impact upon our culture, community, and church, turning them upside down for God’s glory. Students in the 6th to 12th grades are encouraged to join us as we seek to draw closer in our relationships to Christ and seek opportunities to serve. 
 
Our mission, is to partner with parents making disciples of students who will love and serve others and one another as Christ Followers.

Our vision, is to seek, through Bible study, small groups, activities, and events, to guide students into a personal, growing relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ so that they might become true Christ followers. It will endeavor to build personal relationships with students, coming along side each one in order to encourage spiritual growth and leadership development. It will seek to assist students’ as they transition into the adult ministries of the church becoming its future leaders.

Every Sunday morning, beginning at 9:30 AM, the teenagers of Rockwood First Baptist meet for a time of prayer and Bible learning. We gather for prayer then divide into two groups, young women and men, where we dig deep into the issues facing our teenagers using the Word of God as our foundation. Each group is facilitated by faithful adults; however, teenagers are encouraged to speak up and out during each meeting. This is not a time of lecture like most traditional Sunday schools. It is a small group dedicated to growing spiritually by building meaningful relationships and study of the Word of God together. We meet in the teen room upstairs in the education building.
Sunday Night Live, or SNL, is a bi-weekly gathering which meets at 6:00 PM on Sunday nights. This is a time of fellowship, team building games, service project opportunities, hang time in the gym, snacks, worship, teaching and small groups. Dates for SNL are announced on the church’s app, online calendar, youth ministry social media accounts, and Sunday morning bulletins.
Every Wednesday evening, teenagers gather together for prayer, worship, Bible study, and a time of fun. We begin at 6:00 PM in the church Sanctuary and move to the gym in the fellowship hall where we are served a hot meal and have a time of fun. Students in 6th to 12th grades are invited and encouraged to come and be a part of our Wednesday evening service and activities

For students, a week at camp is exciting, fun, loud, and sometimes even messy. But those things don’t bring about life-change on their own. Every moment spent at FUGE is intentional. Camp programming is designed to take students out of their normal routine and place them into an environment that is focused on life-change through relationship with Christ.
