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.

*The Underground is located on the 1st floor of the Student Center



Join us Sundays at 9:45am in the Student Center as we take a look into one of the best know characters in the Bible!



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.  

Join us downtown on August 30th at 6pm for our Group Launch party!  You will meet you host home leaders, get direction to your CGroup and hear all about what is in store for CGroups this year!

2018 Student Ministry Mission Trips


Our student ministry is participating in several different missions opportunities in 2018.  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 2018, we would love to have you participate with us! 

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. 

In 2018 we will be offer two unique international mission trips for high school students.  Our Spring Break trip to Guatemala will be designed but not limited to high school students who have never been on an international mission trip.  This trip will be limited to 30 participants.

 Guatemala Mission Trip: March 17-23

New in 2018 we will be offering a second international mission trip to Ecuador.  Unlike our Guatemala team, our summer team will be designed but not limited to for students who have previously participated in a another international mission trip.

 Ecuador Mission Trip: July 19-25
