“And [God] gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God…” (Ephesians 4:11-13)
The Young Adult Ministry of Temple Baptist Church (20's-30's) is committed to making disciples of all nations. Our desire is to see every Young Adult: 1) mature in Christ, 2) live on mission in the home/workplace, and 3) be equipped to do “the work of the ministry.” To accomplish this goal, we provide several opportunities for education and discipleship of young adults. On Sunday mornings, we offer Young Adult Sunday School classes at both 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (see below for more details). During the school year, we offer several small-group Bible studies on Wednesday nights and other week nights. More information on each of these weekly offerings is listed below. We would love for you to come grow with us and join what God is doing in our Young Adult ministry here at Temple!
