Youth Ministry

Our desire is for youth to have an encounter with the Living God, which leads to a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ. This relationship inspires them into service, urges them to dig deeper into scripture, draw closer to the Creator, and encourages them to love with a Christ-like love.

Pathways Baptist Church offers multiple opportunities for youth to engage in ministry. From camps and retreats to small groups, there is a place for everyone to come together in ministry! Won’t you join us?


Grow: Camps, Retreats, and Conferences

"For where two or three gather together in my name, there I am with them." Matthew 18:20

Throughout the year we have opportunities for our youth to grow together in fellowship, community, and service. Subscribe to the youth weekly e-mail and check out the Pathways Baptist Church calendar to see the upcoming events the youth can participate in.


Dig Deeper: Bible Study, Walk tHIS Way, and Youth Small Group

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

There are multiple opportunities for youth at Pathways Baptist Church to dig deeper into scripture and grow closer to God through discussion. The youth Bible Study engages youth grades 6-12 and meets on Sunday mornings at 9:15am in the Fellowship Hall.

Walk tHIS Way is Pathways Baptist Church’s large youth ministry time. The youth meet on Sunday evenings at 6:30pm in the Gathering Area for games, fellowship, and Bible Study.

Pathway’s Youth Small Group meets on Wednesday evenings in room Chapel 4 at 7pm and roughly follows the MCPS school year. Please join us for this time of discussion, as well as fellowship!
