J.A.M. Youth Ministry

Jesus Alive in Me "...it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me..." Galatians 2:20

J.A.M. exists to see the truths of the Bible become a reality in the daily lives of every teenager. Our desire is to see teenagers:


Saved - call upon the Name of the Lord (Romans 10:13). 

Surrendered - completely committed to the Kingdom of God and the cause of Christ. 

Sanctified - compelled to become like Christ by studying His Word. 

Sharing - communicating their experience with a loving God to a lost and looking world. 


We seek these goals by assisting parents in discipleship, teaching Biblical truth, involving ourselves in worship, service, and fellowship. Our prayer is that God will be glorified in the youth ministry at Midway Baptist Church.

Testimonies

Check out this section to see what teens are saying about JAM!

  • CAris k.

    “JAM has had such a big impact on my time here in Navarre. We have opportunities to make friends, serve, worship, and be fed with God’s Word. The main reason I love JAM is because it feels like home. Everyone involved in JAM is family and I am beyond grateful for how God has been using each and every one of them to impact His Kingdom” 

  • George s.

    “JAM is a place where people that go to different schools and come from different backgrounds come together and have a great time singing, learning about God, and talking with each other!”

  • Olivia t.

    “I love our youth group so much! When school suffocates me with negativity, this youth group never fails to lift me up. I have not only found my closest friends, my family, but I have found Christ through this ministry.” 

Events

Midway Baptist loves teenagers. We believe that it is crucial for teenagers to make new friends, have opportunities to serve, be involved in worship, and just have fun! There's always someone going on for teens at Midway. The following is a list and description of just some of the things we do in J.A.M. Stay informed with the calendar and social media and don't miss a thing!

  • J.A.M. Wednesday nights

    Wednesday's are awesome at Midway. The youth usually meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center, but will meet under the FLC overhang by the picnic tables for the next couple of months. The night begins with a game, followed by musical worship led by our band, and then Bible Study. These meetings times are designed to be fun, informative, and encouraging. 

  • j.a.m.-in

    Each month we gather on a Sunday afternoon to hang out and have fun. 


    We meet in the Family Life Center from 5:30-8:00 p.m. for a time of games, food, and fellowship.


    A J.A.M.-In is a great opportunity to meet new people and make friends.



  • retreats

    Each Spring and Fall we get away from the distractions of everyday life and spend a couple days focused on God and His Word. 


    There will be games, worship, preaching, prayer, a bon-fire, and more!

  • mission trips

    Here at Midway we believe that the Word of God is to be practically applied to our lives.

    Mission trips are great opportunities for teens to apply the truths of the Bible that they learn throughout the year.


    We go to different places and participate in many different types of missions. From VBS, Basketball Camps, to construction. We desire to Glorify God while we spread the Good News while we serve. 

  • j.a.m. camp

    Youth Camp is a huge part of the youth ministry at Midway Baptist.


    Our camps are week long opportunities to leave the distractions of this world and focus on Christ.


    Simply put, our camps are awesome. There's exciting games, new friends, dynamic worship, applicable teaching, impactful preaching, and just an all around great time.
