Baptist Youth Fellowship (BYF)
We have a very vibrant and growing youth ministry at FBC Nitro. We meet regularly on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Our Sunday evening program is a more seeker friendly style of worship and study. Our Wednesday evening program is a more in-depth Bible Study.
We also participate in activities of the West Virginia Baptist Convention. We have 4 major conventions that we attend each school year through the WVBC. We also encourage our students to attend summer camps at Camp Cowen.
We participate in many other activities throughout the year. We have a strong focus on missions. Our youth group has traveled to Tennessee, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and several other locations during the past several years. We also have students who have participated in international mission trips, and we are always looking for mission opportunities within our community and state. We typically do a Fall Retreat, VBS, and many other activities that help our students develop a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ.
