We have about a dozen students for Sunday School and run between 30-50 students on Wednesday.  This fall, we have opportunities in both programs and will be dividing the program into middle school and high school age groups.  Opportunities include developing a student worship team for Wednesday as well as teaching and small group opportunities for both Sunday morning and Wednesday night.  We will provide you with meaningful ministry opportunities and all of this is customizable to your gifting and level of experience. Isaac and our Student Ministry Team will walk with you every step of the way providing valuable feedback and mentoring. Want to do more? Additional ministry opportunities will become available as the year develops.



    •        Sunday Worship - interns participate in regular worship services and body life.
    •        Be available, prompt and prepared for your ministry integration whether Sunday or Wednesday
    •        Provide your own transportation
    •        Participate in other Student Ministry Opportunities and gatherings as time allows




    We know that being a college student can be challenging and you probably miss your home church.  Well, we can be your church family while you are at LBC!  Along with the valuable experience you will gain in ministry, you can also take advantage of these opportunities:

    •        Making friends throughout the congregation and especially in the Student Ministry Department
    •        Frequent invitations for a home cooked meal and to hang out with a BGF church family
    •        Prayer support
    •        Gas money to help with travel expenses
