Youth Ministry

Donna Dallas, Youth Director

1 Timothy 4:12 – “Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith and purity.”


To All of our youth and to the parents, we want you to know there is a place for you at First Corinthian.

Our goals is to reinstate what we were doing PRE-COVID and build from that including:


  • Developing a Youth Registry
  • Presenting Fourth Sunday Youth Explosions
  • And taking advantage of every youth opportunity that we possibly can
  • We want to see Youth in every ministry of our Church from the Choir to the Usher Board
