Teens For Christ


The Pleasant Beach Baptist Teens for Christ is an exciting ministry for young people in the seventh through twelfth grades. We encourage teenagers to reach all the potential God has given them and to live their lives with faith in Christ and a genuine concern for others. We provide a positive peer group to support, encourage, and pray for each other.


Sunday School

The youth of Pleasant Beach Baptist Church are active in serving in various ministries of the church. During the Sunday School hour our youth are divided into classes as follows:

  • Jr High Girls - Jean Tipton & Tawana Holland
  • High School Girls  - Linda Vaughn
  • Youth Boys  - Kevin Vaughn & Dustin Hensley


Wednesday Evening

Pleasant Beach Teens for Christ meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. The focus is on how to help teens grow into spiritual leaders at school, home, and in their community. Each week young people have an opportunity to share prayer request and praises with their peers and leaders. During their Wednesday night meeting a lesson is given from the Word of God to challenge and to strengthen their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.


Teen Choir

Every young person is encouraged to participate in our Teens for Christ Youth Choir. Throughout the year the Youth Choir has an opportunity to sing in the regular services and for special youth services. Seeking to honor the Lord and to exhort believers, the Youth Choir sings hymns and old fashion Gospel songs.


Ministries and Activities

Our young people are challenged to serve God in the days of their youth. Many are actively involved serving in the nursery, singing in the choir, ushering, working with children and a variety of other ministries. We are attempting to instill in them the principle of serving others, instead of seeing what others can do for them.  


The youth enjoy exciting activities throughout the year. Basketball, volleyball, cookouts, skiing, bowling are just some of the activities they enjoy. Trips to Carowinds, various cities like Washington, DC, and mission trips are a highlight of the year. Our annual trip to Crown College’s Young Congress is a spiritual challenge to all who attend.
