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!

Current Sunday Morning Series

Fan or Follower? (Spiritual Life): Are you a fan or a follower? What’s the difference? A fan is someone who identifies with a team or a person because of the benefits it provides. However, as soon as trouble arises he jumps on another wagon. A follower is someone whose identity doesn’t depend on the circumstances. Jesus said in Matthew 16:24, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus Christ?
