As the student ministry of First Baptist Tulsa, we exist to help students begin and grow a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.  We do this by providing weekly and yearly programming that is both engaging and purposeful.

Each week students are encouraged to participate in our student worship service {ELEVATE} and our midweek small groups {CGroups}.

We also provide students with the opportunity to attend yearly events that are designed to help students build community, express worship and go deeper in their relationship with Christ.  Highlights in our calendar include Falls Creek, Winter Blast, Mission Trip(s) and Fall Retreat.

So if you are a teenager or know a teenager in the Tulsa metro that is looking for a fun, welcoming and exciting place to grow in their faith, we would love to serve you in any way possible.




ELEVATE is our version of church for Teenagers and it is one of a kind in Tulsa! Students from all over the Tulsa metro gather for passionate worship, outrageous games and videos, relevant teaching and discussion groups.

Breath is vital not only for us to survive but also for us to thrive.  In the same way, we need the breath of God in our lives to thrive spiritually.  Join us each Sunday in June as we unpack the importance of God’s breath in our lives.

Midweek Small Groups


CGroups are our midweek small groups that meet in homes all across the Tulsa metro area during the school year.  We believe that God designed us with a desire to experience community with those around us.  If you are ready to take the next step in your faith journey, consider getting plugged into a CGroup this year.

2017 Student Ministry Mission Trips


Our student ministry is participating in several different missions opportunities in 2017.  While we do have ongoing mission activities throughout the year, we also offer two unique mission events during the year.  Outside of camp, these trips are the most life changing moments our teenagers experience. If you are considering a mission trip in 2017, we would love to have you participate with us! 

 Middle School Students are invited to join us this summer on mission trip designed just for them to Medford Oklahoma.  We will be working with FBC Medford on several work projects as well as participating in youth and adult worship.  

Middle School Mission Trip – Medford – July 22-24 


Our international mission trips are designed around helping plant a new church in the region we go to and sharing the gospel.  Our teenagers undergo a 4 week evangelism training course to prepare for the trip.  Once on the ground, our students share their faith door-to-door and face-to-face.  We have watched these experiences change our students, and they return home different. 

 Guatemala Mission Trip: March 11-17

 Click HERE to see the highlight video of our 2017 trip. 


For those unable to travel over Spring Break, we offered a three day missions project right here in Tulsa.  Student meet Monday 10:00 – 12:00, Tuesday 9:00 – 11:30 and Wednesday 2:00 – 5:00.  They finished Wednesday by eating dinner and watching a movie together. 

 Mission Tulsa: March 13-15
