The Office of Collegiate & Student Ministries partners with Alabama Baptist churches and associations in ministry with middle school and high school students. Our goal is to fulfill our one mission – the Great Commission – by training and equipping student ministers, providing youth events such as the annual Youth Evangelism Conference and Super Summer Alabama Camp. Contact us to see how we might assist you as you minister to students, their families and leaders.

As leaders in Alabama Baptist youth ministry, we desire to serve local churches and associations as they accomplish the Great Commission in and through the lives of youth and their families.

We recognize that there is no prescribed means for accomplishing this mission. Each church must identify their own needs and seek resources and strategies to meet those unique needs.

The following are youth ministry values that we affirm as a part of the larger family of Southern Baptist youth leaders:
