I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:2

Purpose Statement

The Student Ministry at First Baptist Dexter exists to connect students to God, the Church, and each other.

Secondary Title


First, we believe that students need to be connected to God.  He is the beginning and the end of everything.  If we are not connected to God, then this life can easily and quickly overwhelm us.  Second, we believe that students need to be connected to the Church…the whole church.  This starts first and foremost with the family, but also includes the entire community of believers within the church.  Third, they need a place to connect with each other.  They need that positive peer pressure to stay true to their commitment to follow Christ.  In Refuge we are Biblically Based, Christ Centered, Grounded in Grace, Authentic in our Walk, Passionate about Prayer, Committed to Community, and Committed to the Uncommitted.
