Young families, kids, and student ministries at First Baptist are GROWING! This is an incredible answer to prayer as we seek to reach the next generation in Jacksonville for Christ.  Yet, to meet these growing needs we need to update key NextGen spaces that are over 20 years old and no longer work for our ministry needs.  Will you help us and invest in the next generation?

Our Goals

  • Add adult-use bathrooms on the 2nd floor and update the kids-use bathrooms.

  • Bigger spaces with room for growth

  • Beautiful and clean spaces for growing young families.

  • Replace aging technology and sound system past its lifespan.

  • Provide more space for growing ministry.

  • Beautiful, clean, and inviting spaces for students.

  • Replace East building AC units to provide cool, pleasant ministry spaces.

Pray for the NextGen

We invite you to join us in dependent prayer for this vision.

First Kids

  • This ministry space would be used to disciple hundreds of children and teens in the next 10 years.

  • That God would strengthen and bless the church’s partnership with parents in reaching the next generation.

  • We would see a significant increase in new families visiting and joining our church.

    First Students

    • That God will continue to bring new students to our ministry. 

    • That the funding for these projects will be met and exceeded.

    • Scores of students will hear the gospel because of the faithful giving from our church.
