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!

9:15am | The Loft (Horner Family Center, level 4)

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.

Current Sunday Morning Series

Explore GodWe all have questions, and The 7 Big Questions series covers some of the biggest questions surrounding God. This series is great for just about anyone who has questions about God, and the truth is: that’s everyone! None of us has it all figured out, and this series is designed to tee up great conversation around these big questions.

Behind The Scene

Sunday, Dec. 6 | 9:15am | The Loft

We’re bringing "Behind The Scene" back for a look at the characters behind the nativity scene such as the shepherds, Simeon, and Anna in order to learn from their example of worship, obedience, and faith in God. This timely series will also serve as a reminder to keep the true meaning of Christmas at the forefront of the holiday season.

The struggle is real

New Series Beginning Jan. 2016

We all struggle with something. You may be surprised to know that the end goal isn’t necessarily to eliminate struggles or temptations but to learn how to struggle well. In The Struggle Is Real, we will explore many relevant topics such as dating relationships, sex, social media, homosexuality, drugs and alcohol, suicide, depression, and many more in an effort to help teenagers understand that we can’t avoid struggles, but we do have a loving Father that provides for us in our struggles.

Collision Sunday

Collision occurs one Sunday a month at 9:15am with the purpose of growing teenage disciples of Christ. Your teen will understand how to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the teenage community in DFW. Your student is encouraged to bring friends and classmates for a time of amazing worship and to hear the gospel.


One of the most recognizable things about downtown Dallas are the famous “Avenues” like McKinney, Swiss, Greenville, etc. Now the McKinney Avenue Trolley will be running right in front of our church.

Not only are avenues very prominent streets in Dallas, they are also a means of getting from one place to another. In fact, one of the primary definitions for “avenue” is “a way of achieving something or reaching a goal.” We want Wednesday nights in First Dallas Students to be a way for students to reach deeper fellowship with God and each other in order that they might have a greater impact for His kingdom.
