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

Second Nature (Spiritual Life): When we hear the word “discipline” we typically think of a correction due to one’s action(s). However, spiritual disciplines work just the opposite way. Spiritual disciples are habits that should become second nature to remain in the center of God’s will. Join us as we discover how spiritual disciplines such as bible study, prayer, memorization, and more can become like second nature in your walk with God!

Collision Sunday with I Am They

Sunday, October 11 | 9:15am | The Loft

Invite friends for Collision with Ed Newton and then lunch and a DJ following 10:50am worship.

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.
