E3 Student Ministry
E3 is the Student Ministry of First Baptist Church of Jacksonville for students in grades 6-12. E3 exists to love all students into a growing relationship with Jesus by Encouraging, Equipping, and Evangelizing students for the glory of God.
E3 is a place where students want to be and need to be! Students are weekly exposed to who Jesus is and are challenged to sell out for Him. E3 is a place where lives are changed, friendships are built, and disciples are made.
We have 3 distinct environments for students that promote spiritual growth. The three environments are:
Middle School | 4:30pm-6:15pm
High School | 6:45pm-8:30pm
The life of a student is fast. Every day, students are pulled in multiple directions while our fast paced society is vying for every second of their time. Week after week, students come in masses to LIVE and every week, students learn about Jesus. Our goal at LIVE is to provide a place for students to escape, a place for them to feel connected, and a place for them to find purpose. LIVE begins with hang time where students can play video games, shoot pool, play ping pong, get sandy with volleyball or simply chill out with friends. During this time, the Café is open providing students with a meal option and snacks at a low cost. After hang time the main event of the night begins, LIVE Worship! From the moment they are rushed through the doors students are engaged with live music, high impact videos, student testimonies, and a practical message from the Word of God. Students leave each week knowing that they are loved and that there IS a living God! LIVE is for students grades 6-8 (4:30 - 6:15) and 9-12 (6:45 - 8:30).
Saturdays 7:00 pm | Sundays 9:45am & 11:15am
As E3 continues to grow it is crucial for students to become connected to a LifeGroup. LifeGroups are grade specific, small groups that discuss real life issues from a biblical perspective. LifeGroups help lay a biblical foundation for students to build upon for the rest of their lives.
Students evangelizing and serving others for the glory of God is the end goal for E3. Each week students can be seen serving in the children's environments , youth environments, or helping with adult ministries. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to serve the community every other month with the love of Jesus.
