COLLEGE AND YOUTH

TEXAS A&M / BLINN

 As you pray through where the Lord wants you, here in Bryan/College Station… here are a few highlights about us: At Faith Bible Church we want more than anything for you to all fall deeply in love with Jesus Christ and radically surrender to Him. As a non-denominational Bible church, we preach through the Bible (sample) to see what Jesus has to say to us, and we sing (hymns and new songs—sample) to exalt the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We highly value community—deep relationships between all ages and backgrounds. People often say “It just feels like family.” We want to be your family away from home. We believe it is important for you to have community with your peers (who are going through the same stuff you are) and with older people (who have already been there). We have opportunities for you to mentor, be mentored, and serve. In short, we want you to love God (seek Jesus daily), love others (peer and intergenerational community) and go out (service, discipleship and missions). Here’s some of the stuff we have going on:

  1. Sunday Morning Bible Study 9:15am (college only)

  2. Various Mid-week Home Groups (college and intergenerational)

  3. Free College Lunch – 1st Sun. each month 12pm 4915 Park Land, Bryan

  4. Opportunities to be discipled and make disciples/mentor/teach K-12.

  5. Various Mission Trip Opportunities (Kansas City, El Salvador, Romania, etc.)

So, welcome to Bryan/College Station! We’d love to meet you. And remember, as you look for a church home, just relax, pray and listen to Jesus… He’s already got this thing all figured out. If you want to try carpooling with our other collegians from campus or have any questions at all that you want to text or discuss over a meal or coffee, contact: Andy Vanderveer (Student and Worship Pastor) (979) 571-5780 andy@brazosfaith.org or Kristin Vanderveer (979) 571-5789 kristinvandy@gmail.com.

“LINK” 7th – 12th GRADE

Whether you believe what we do or not…whether you feel near to God or like a stranger… whether you’ve been in church your whole life or not at all…we wanna hang out with you and get to know you. We don’t want to try to make you a better person who has all the right answers and never messes up. We want you to meet and fall deeply in love with Jesus. God loves you. Jesus died for you. His Holy Spirit lives in you who believe — and that links us together (Romans 12:5). Join us for LINK, Wednesdays 6-8pm at the church (map), where we hang out, eat, and study the Bible together. Then we divide into small groups for discussion led by a college student, who wants to hang out with you and get to know you. Also, join us Sundays 9:15am at the church (map) for group Bible study and discussion. If you have any questions at all, call or text me. – Andy Vanderveer (979) 571-5780 andy@brazosfaith.org.
