Brandywine Students is the youth ministry at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware. We have programs and events for both middle school students (6th-8th grade) and high school students (9th-12th grade). Check us out! Brandywine Students is a place for students to establish Godly friendships, build a strong foundation and grow in their faith.
From weekly and monthly events to retreats, all-night events and service opportunities, there are tons of places for students to get involved.
One of the best ways to keep up with the student ministry is our free app for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and Android devices! It has photos, videos, our podcast, upcoming events, updates, and more. You can find it here.
To keep up-to-date about upcoming events, subscribe to our twice a month email updates, listen to our high school teaching (podcast), watch video highlights, see photos and more! We use Facebook a lot, so there are tons of photos, updates, event highlights, videos and more there (you don’t need to have a Facebook account to see them). Check out our Facebook page.
Student Quest meets every Sunday morning from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Students who get there early can spend time in the Lounge eating snacks, drinking coffee, making new friends and catching up with other friends. Students then move to the gym for a time of student led worship. After announcements, the middle school and high school students split up for a time of teaching and growing closer to God.
Student Small Groups: One of the cornerstones of our student ministry program is weekly small group meetings. Small groups are created based on grade and gender. The evening starts with some fun activities and then moves into group Bible study and prayer. This is a great way for kids to build and strengthen friendships with other Christian kids as well as go deep in the Word. Small Groups meet during the school year on Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Special Events: Brandywine Students hold special events and service opportunities throughout the year. Some of the past activities have included retreats, all nighters, amusement park trips, concerts, beach trips, games, sports, volunteer opportunities and much, much more.
