First Presbyterian Church’s Student Ministry focuses on discipling our young people so that they will love Jesus Christ more today than they did yesterday. Through the regularly ministry of the Word as well as through fellowship and service projects, students from seventh to twelfth grades are challenged with the Gospel of God’s grace to see themselves as Christ sees them—loved by the Triune God—and respond to that love in trusting obedience. Led by our minister of students, Rev. Ben Griffith, and assisted by male and female interns, we host Bible studies and youth retreats; we do fall and spring service projects; we work on Backyard Bible Clubs in east Hattiesburg; and we have regular Sunday evening fellowship times in partnership with area PCA churches.
