JG Youth Ministry
OVERVIEW OF SBC YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAMS
The Springfield Baptist Church (SBC)Youth Ministry, known as “JG” (JOSHUA GENERATION), is a ministry dedicated to the sole purpose of connecting our youth to the Kingdom of God. This ministry is available to every member of Springfield Baptist church that are in 6th-12th grade. Our Purpose is to commend youth into the saving faith in Jesus Christ, and to train them for leadership within the Kingdom of God. SBC believes that our youth must be thoroughly equipped to rely, maintain and defend their faith.

Worship in The “REFUGE” (Youth Church, 6th-12th grade)
Youth Church is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday at 11AM in the Springfield Activity Center (SAC). This service is dedicated solely to our youth and is lead by our Youth Pastor ~ Pastor D’Ondre Mapp. During our time in the Refuge (JG’s Sanctuary) we promote TRANSFORMATION through selfless service, with the PROCLAMATION, EXPLANATION, and APPLICATION of God's Holy Word. Our time together is also used to build, mold and shape our teens into being an instrument of God's REDEEMING, RECONCILING, RESTORING, and REVIVING power…visible Worshippers that will go beyond the walls of the church and help build Christian communities and schools, that will reflect the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Over the years, God has increased our ministry by adding the following components…
MIDDLE SCHOOL MINISTRY
This Ministry is in place to be sure that the transition from our Children’s Ministry (Kingdom Kids) to our Youth Ministry (JG) is seamless and productive. The Tween Ministry is designed for Middle School Youth only.
The Youth Council is “the Voice” for JG’s student body. JGYC represents a community of youth who refuse to conform to what the world says that they should be. They are great examples of SERVITUDE.
ACTING OUT & MIME
This Ministry communicates the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the medium of theatrical production. SBC believes that the inclusiveness of dramatic art form is a fundamental part of the worship experience.
This Ministry is a vehicle for the preservation and promotion of our Christian witness through the application of media technology. The Youth of JG believes that the effective use of technology enhances the opportunities to spread the good news of the gospel to all nations and generations.
VOICES OF JG (Praise Team and Choir)
This Ministry provides a quality music ministry that trains individuals to use their God-given talents to be a witness of God’s goodness. SBC believes that praise and worship that builds body and lifts up the name of Christ while glorifying God.
DANCE & STEP MINISTRIES
This Ministry is an instrument of the Holy Spirit so that, through dance we will worship and praise the Lord, encourage the saints, and introduce the unsaved to the Savoir. SBC believes that worship through dance has the ability to minister to the saved and unsaved.
This Ministry serves as doorkeepers in the House of God, while promoting selfless service as gracious hosts and hostesses. SBC believes that, the selfless acts of service to others, demonstrates God’s love.
