Who We Are

The Youth Minstry at Centerview Baptist Church is made up of students from grades 7-12. The ministry program includes Sunday School, AWANA (24/7), Wednesday S.A.Y. meeting and various other ministry opportunities, fundraisers, and fellowships throughout the year. 
We try, with God’s help, to live out our Bible verse and our purpose statement.  Our S.A.Y. (Set Apart Youth) ministry provides a safe haven for youth to come and fellowship. We want to develop our own personal relationships with the Lord and grow in our biblical knowledge through the various programs offered. Through community outreach and fellowship, it is our goal to share the gospel with others and to learn more as individuals.

Our Bible Verse

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and in your purity.”  - 1 Timothy 4:12 (NLT)

Purpose Statement

S.A.Y. strives to surrender to God’s will by studying His Word and living it through our service and speech to
glorify God in all we do.

Our Youth Ministry Programs

Sunday School
Our Sunday Morning Bible Study focuses on Christ and His Word with an emphasis on imitating and following Him. We study topics from the Word of God that apply to real life. We strive to live the life that Christ has called each of us to and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ to do the same.

AWANA (24/7)
AWANA (24/7) is our Sunday evening program that meets throughout the school year. We focus on all aspects that youth really get into…food, fun and fellowship. The food is memorizing scripture, the fun is game time and the fellowship is a Bible study. There is also personal Bible study for you during the week as an added bonus to learning to live the Christian life.

Wednesday Night S.A.Y. Meeting
Wednesday night S.A.Y. meetings allow us to come together in a casual setting. We share about our week and study the Bible in a practical way that can be applied to our daily lives.

youth hangoutS.A.Y. Hang Time
Wednesday night S.A.Y. Hang Time is when we come together for a time of fun.  We hang out and play games, listen to music, talk or just relax.  We meet in Room 403 in the Youth Annex.

Summer S.N.A.C. 

S.N.A.C.  stands for Sunday Night After Church. We usually have 6-8 meetings during the summer months. This is a time of food, fun and fellowship. We have a Bible study from 6:30-7:30pm. From 7:30-10:00pm, we eat, play games and enjoy each other’s company. These nights usually have a theme that ties everything together. This is a great time for fun and we would love for you to join us.


 Youth Camp
We attend camp during the summer. These camps are ministry based where we can serve the Lord. There are many ministry opportunities to choose from and this week is also filled with quiet time, Bible study, worship, and fun. We have served in New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and North Carolina thus far. This week is a lot of fun and much spiritual growth occurs among the participants.

Words From Some of Our Youth

-“The atmosphere and energy in this God-fearing group of people is truly amazing. God is put first and foremost in everything we do. Because of this, the ministry opportunities are all the more impacting.”
-“They are friendly, open-hearted, very loving, welcoming and fun.”
-“The people here are really nice and caring. They all make the youth group really fun.”
-“One thing about this youth group is that it has no cliques…everyone is welcome.”
-“Our youth group is a family. We all love each other despite our shortcomings. We love to joke around, help each other and minister to our community. We are extremely willing to welcome and adopt new family members.”
-“…warm-hearted people who love God and love to have fun.”
-“I love the fact that our youth is more than a group of teens…we are more of a family united in Christ.”
