The student ministry of Ankeny Baptist Church is committed to building intentional relationships with students and families for the purpose of developing spiritual leaders

Our youth group is a place where teenagers can belong, have fun, and figure out what’s really important in life. We understand the teenage years are some of the most formative years in a person’s life, and we’re here to help build them into who God made them to be.

Throughout the year, our teens get involved in the community at both local and global levels. They regularly participate in service activities such as serving meals at centers for at-risk kids, hosting games during community events and decorating cemeteries for Memorial Day. Each year, the high-school students travel on a missions trip to serve in vacation Bible school ministries, community outreach, facilities maintenance and more. In the last several years, the teens have traveled to Cleveland, Salt Lake City and Peru.

Colossians 1:9-10 For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God.



Bible Study

Sundays at 9:30, 7th-12th grade
Each week, we provide an in-depth study focused on expanding students’ Bible knowledge in an interactive setting. We don’t just want our students to know the Bible. We want them to live it. We don’t just want our students to quote their parents’ beliefs. We want students to make Biblical truth their own conviction. Our study offers separate groups for middle school and high school, which allows our discussions and content to be relevant and applicable to each student’s life.

Youth Group

Wednesdays at 6:25-8 pm,  7th-12th grade

Teens find activities, food, theme nights, and topical Bible lessons during our Wednesday night sessions. We’re passionate about relationships and growing in God’s Word. And we believe you can have fun while doing it. Wednesday nights have a kicked back feel, full of interaction and activities. Students will also meet in small groups, which serve as a place to make new friends and find accountability and support.
