Gayton Student Life

Gayton Student Life


Gayton Student Life is the student/youth ministry of Gayton Baptist Church ( ) for students in grades 6-12. The vision for Gayton Student Life is to lead students to know and follow Jesus Christ; and to experience LIFE in HIM through:


Discipleship:             in worship, prayer, and the studying the Bible


Community:             in friendship, large & small gatherings, support & encouragement


Leadership:              in opportunities for initiative, serving, and discovering/using spiritual gifts


Action​:                      in outreach, volunteering, mission work & daily living for Christ


To reach these goals, Gayton Student Life includes weekly LifeNights, Bible studies & “check-in’s” plus special events, like retreats, socials, outings, and mission trips/camps. All activities are well-chaperoned by ministerial staff and adult volunteers from Gayton Baptist who have had background checks and who are invested in this youth ministry with their time, hearts and prayers. If you have questions about Gayton Student Life, contact Rev.
