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!

Beach Camp

Watch a recap of what God did at Beach Camp.


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

Lenses: Cults of the World (Worldviews): There are many belief systems in the world that are more than simply “religions” or “sets of beliefs;” they are cults. In this series of Lenses students will see the errors of these false religions. Our intention is that they will be better equipped to engage the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ as a result of this series.

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. 

New Series

PAC - Purpose and Creation of Men and Women: Our culture is incredibly confused and hypocritical about what makes a man a man and a woman a woman. There’s even a movement to remove the idea of gender all together. Genesis 1:27 specifically tells us that God created male and female. Why did He do that and what does it mean for us? Come to The Avenue to find out the purpose behind God’s design and how to become the man or woman God created you to be!
