Student Ministry

The First Pres student ministry focuses on middle, high school, and college students, and provides opportunities for youth to go deeper in their relationship with God as well as their relationships with others. Most student ministry programming takes place in Allen & Yowell Hall.

DR Mission Trip • Jun 10-16

FPCO works under the leadership of partner Mission Emanuel in the community of Cielo, Dominican Republic. Student Ministry leaders as well as Family Pastor Bret Allen takes adults and children to the DR to serve. We spend almost a week building houses and relationships. This trip is a great first-time mission experience for many individuals, families and small groups. The trip is discipleship-based, so it is intended for more mature Christ-followers. Each high school student must apply. 

Trip frequency change: Starting this summer, we are only offering the trip every other year. So come with us this year! 

Cost? The cost of your trip is $1350, and does NOT include the cost of your flight. Each student can book their own flight once their application is approved by SM staff. Flight cost is looking like about $400-500 right now. So the sooner you apply, the cheaper!

DR Trip Application

Camp Twain • Georgia • July 24-28

Who: All middle and high school students (rising 6th grade to graduated senior)

**More details will be on the way soon!
