C. Dennis Edwards I, Senior Pastor

To All of Our SJMBC Parents/Guardians,

I am elated about the work of God that is taking place in the SJMBC Youth Department. As you peruse through this packet it is our prayer that you find the information provided insightful and beneficial.  We look forward to partnering with the Parents/Guardians of St. John in a co-jointed effort to equip, empower, and enrich the spiritual development of our youth. 

In Christ,
Pastor Palmer


~ Our Mission ~

To advance the kingdom of our Savior through the preaching of the Gospel, the  support of missions, and other acts of charity while helping all who come to believe to  become fully developing disciples of Jesus Christ by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

 ~ Vision Statement ~

We envision a church living up to the challenge of the Lord Jesus Christ to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, and that is an agent for renewal and development of the surrounding community and beyond.

This site is designed to inform you of what our ministry is all about!

We use the acronym, SHAPE, to describe our work here. Just as the potter shapes the clay, so God wants to shape our lives. We here at St. John Missionary Baptist Church, want to be used by God, to help in shaping the life of your young person.

We want to guide them into a relationship with Christ.

We want to teach them how to honor and worship God.

We want to give them an opportunity to fellowship with other young Believers.

We want to instruct them and disciple them from God's inerrant and Holy Word.

We want to train them to go and Tell the Gospel of our Lord.
