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

Mission 1:8: What does it look like to live a life of generosity? Does it mean that I have to give a lot of money or my possessions? Does it mean that I have to give of my time and energy for a good cause? In Mission 1:8 we are going to talk about how we ought to live a life of generosity because we serve a generous God."


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. 

here's what's happening...

First Dallas Girls Broken Conference

Saturday, October 25 | 9am-8:30pm | The Loft

Worship with Jourdan Johnson
Hear speaker Kate Downing
Cost is $30. REGISTER HERE

From fingernails and eyeliner pencils to promises and relationships, broken things are unwanted and painful. We live in a world of broken families, broken ideas of who we are, and a broken relationship with our Creator. In the midst of all this, there is hope and a future found in the God who was willing to be broken for us. 

Spend the day worshiping with Erin Wilson and recording artist Jourdan Johnson. Discuss issues like dating, frenemies, depression, and other real life topics. Learn how God can turn our brokenness into something beautiful.
