Youth and

Children’s Ministry


NLBC has a great group of young people. While we believe the father and mother are the primary disciple-makers of their children, we understand that the Lord uses various other means to impact young persons in a Christ-ward way. For this purpose, we seek to offer opportunities such as Small Groups on Sunday morning, occasional fellowships after church on Sunday evenings, Fall Fusion (a fall youth conference), Winter and Spring Renewals, and an annual Summer Camp. The name of this ministry is “Four-12 Student Ministry” after 1 Timothy 4:12, which says, “Let no one despise your youth be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” Our prayer is that each young person would become an entirely devoted follower of Jesus Christ.  


NLBC kids is our midweek program designed to be fun, educational, and Scripture-saturated. Our primary goal is to teach the children about the Gospel and what it means to follow Jesus Christ. We have an excellent team who works each week faithfully to plant and water the seed of the Word in our children’s hearts. The children also learn rich songs and hymns that they will occasionally sing on Sunday mornings as a part of the worship service.
