About our ministry...

The First Dallas Student ministry welcomes teens from all backgrounds and walks of life. We desire to encourage your student to be a Christ follower, worshipper, and a lover of God's word. Your student will always walk away challenged.

Through Biblical, practical teaching, we will help your student grow, equip them with the truth and give them opportunities to share it. Our doors are always open, and we are passionate about pointing your teen to Christ. Ultimately, we desire to know God and make Him known!

For more information contact the Student Ministry at 214.969.2451 or check out First Baptist Dallas Student Ministry on Facebook.  


Students meet on Sunday mornings for worship and biblical, practical teaching followed by small groups according to grade and gender. Each group is led by a teacher who is passionate about helping teens know how God wants them to live.

We meet at 9:15am on level 4 of the Horner Family Center (The Loft).

Current Sunday Morning Series

Why Church? (Church): The question may not be verbalized, but it can be seen in our culture, “Why church? Why do I need to go? Why does it exist?” The book of Acts gives us great answers to all of these relevant questions. As a community that supported one another and was committed to the scriptures, the early church provides a good example of the importance of church for teenage Christians in a pagan world.
