Youth Team

WebsitePic1Association Youth Team Members:  Pastor Brent Metcalf, Mr. Billy Ragland, Mrs. Mandy Bentley


The Student Ministry Team had an event for Youth on Friday, March 31 called “Late Night Transylvania.” There were approximately 150 in attendance coming from Temple Baptist, Gladys Branch Baptist, Grace Baptist, Brevard Community, and First Baptist Brevard.  Youth also attended connected to Next Church, FCA and Young Life Transylvania.

We reached out to several other churches but for one reason or another they were unable to be part of this event.  Hopefully in the future we have laid a ground work for future participation and partnership.

The event was an all night event.  We charged each student that was able to pay $20.  Every student that attended received a t-shirt.  The event started at the Boys and Girls Club in Brevard.  We had dinner provided by Next Church and had music, games, and a Gospel presentation.  By the time everyone that showed up we had approximately 150 High School Student and our leaders for the event.  After we finished at the Boys and Girls Club we traveled to Launch Trampoline park in Arden.  As students entered Launch the Young Life Committee of Brevard handed everyone Krispe Kreme Doughnuts.  After the trampoline park we traveled to the Hendersonville YMCA where we used the swimming pool and gym.  Grace Brevard hosted a coffee bar in the lobby of the YMCA.  After the YMCA we traveled back to Brevard to Rockin Bowl where we all bowled.  After bowling we traveled to the Coed movie theatre and watched a movie.  To conclude the evening we returned to the Boys and Girls Club for Breakfast provided by Brevard Community Church.  Transportation for the event was provided by Emma Bus lines out of Asheville.

We appreciate all who supported us through prayer and for all who helped in a multitude of ways.  To God be the Glory!

Community Ministry Project Ideas

In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Jesus does not promise that we will not be burdened; He promises that the burdens we carry will be light as we come to Him. As we are not alone in our burdens, we need not forget our neighbors who are weighed down with various circumstances in life. The following are some project ideas that can help you address different needs in the community.

Card Ministry

A word of encouragement goes a long way to comfort those who are sick or grieving, celebrate a joyous occasion, and share God’s love. A card ministry allows you to show that you care even when you are not present physically.

Goodie Bags for School Teachers

There is a metaphor in the Chinese language that likens teachers as “engineers of the human soul”. Teachers are often like our second parents; they contribute so much to our lives, but we do not appreciate them enough. Making goody bags for teachers is a fun and creative way to show respect and gratitude to our teachers.

Host a Block Party

A block party is a positive and powerful way to bring the community together. It breaks down barriers and is a great opportunity to fellowship with your surrounding neighbors.

Lunch for Habitat for Humanity Workers

Habitat for Humanity (HFH) is a nonprofit Christian housing organization that provides affordable housing for people in need. HFH operates through volunteer labor in nearly 90 countries. As homeowners and volunteers sweat through hundreds of hours in building houses, a great way to give back is by preparing or providing lunches for them on various build days.

Park Cleanup

Park cleanup is a great project for church and the community to join forces in order to beautify a public area. Like the roadside cleanup, cleaning up a park is a great project for all ages.

Prayer Walking

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings should be made for everyone…(1 Tim. 2:1)

Roadside Cleanup

Littering is illegal in many states, but often we pass by unsightly trash by the roadside. Cleaning up a roadside is a great project for all ages. By picking litter along a highway or park area, you can keep the community clean and beautiful. You might even help brighten the drivers’ day as they travel on a pristine road.

Shelby Mission Camp


The goal of the Shelby Mission Camp is to involve churches (men, women and youth) in missions. As we serve together, using our God given skills, God will open doors for many spiritual needs to be met. Construction, and other projects are planned well in advance of your mission trip. In preparation, the camp director will meet with local churches, associations, and community leaders. Evangelistic opportunities such as Backyard Bible Schools, Sport Camps and other community ministries can also be set up by the camp director if the team desires.  Eddie and Martha Williams serve as our mission camp coordinator. They are looking forward with great anticipation to serving with thousands of you who want to come on missions to Shelby area and help build God’s Kingdom!  Please come join us!

Red Springs Mission Camp

Red Springs Mission Camp is a 52,000 square foot facility operated by North Carolina Baptist Men. The newly remodeled facility can house over 200 mission volunteers. The purpose of the Mission Camp is to provide a place where volunteers (men, women and youth) can use their God-given skills to rebuild homes and touch lives in the name of Christ. Most projects involve the building of new homes and renovation of existing ones in and around Robeson County. Working with local government, local churches, and other individuals, projects are identified by the camp leadership and preparations made for each team’s service. Other evangelistic and outreach ministry opportunities may be set up as well upon prior arrangement with the Mission Camp director.
