Mission 

GBC Students exists to glorify God by serving students and partnering with their parents to teach them to be lights for Jesus Christ.

Gashland Baptist Church Students is a ministry for students who are in 6th-12th grade that aims to help them follow the Light (John 8:12), and be the light (Matthew 5:14-16). We do this primarily through the weekly expository preaching and teaching of God’s Word, singing, prayer, small group discussions, and relationships, as well as through monthly service or fellowship events. Over spring break we typically go on a mission trip and in the summer we go to MFuge summer camp.
