The Student Ministry of ESBC exists to glorify God by bringing students in through intentional evangelism, build them up through Biblical Discipleship and send them out in accordance with the Great Commission.
Each year our students are able to experience exciting, yet intentional events which aid in drawing them closer to Christ. Some of these events include our Disciple Now Weekend which takes place each January, Centrifuge Youth Camp which happens every summer, and our High School Leadership Retreat that comes around during our students' Mardi Gras Break.
Here are a few of our regular meeting times that take place each week.
Weekly Events and Times:
REPLICATE (Wednesdays 6:30-7:30)
Replicate is an exciting, high energy time of worship for our students. Our students engage in a time of corporate worship as they are led by our student praise band. There is also a Biblical message presented by Josh each week. This semester our students will be looking at real life issues that teenagers face in our all new series, APPLIED.
Our current series in Replicate is "Becoming The Church". Following Christ ascension, He gives His followers some specific directives on how and where to deliver the Good News of Salvation. Jesus opens up heaven and the family of God to all people and He uses the weakness of man to display His power and faithfulness. You will not want to miss this unbelievable series.
Life Groups (Sunday 9:00am)
Our life group classes meet each Sunday morning at 9:00am for a brief time together. Our students are then divided into a number of age based small groups. Currently, our students are going through The Gospel Project during this time of Bible Study.
Youth Choir (Sunday 5:00pm)
Our Youth Choir is much more than a choir. Each year our students travel around the country, sharing the Gospel with the homeless, the helpless, the incarcerated, and anyone else they may encounter along the way. The students are truly living on mission. Join Tony and the youth choir each Sunday evening in the choir room.
