Common Ground Youth Ministry of Keltys First Baptist Church exists to cultivate students to


  • KNOW God by loving Him with all of their heart
  • GROW in Christ Jesus through discipleship and fellowship
  • GO reach lost students with the gospel of Jesus Christ by going into our world

Our department seeks to minister to youth from 7th through 12th grade within the confines of the local church.
