Welcome from Minister to Families, Rev. Drew Phillips

Welcome to Third’s Youth Page!

We care about the welcome youth receive, their own spiritual formation, and their participation in the local body of Christ that is Third Baptist Church.

Our youth represent families and schools from all over the metro St. Louis area.

We place a high priority on our youth’s spiritual formation and have been engaging in the ancient practices utilizing labyrinths and Lection Divina.

We ask, “What do our youth need to know and believe as they prepare for adulthood?”

In answer to that we have devoted Sunday School time to a Third specific curriculum grounded in the historic faith.

We have fun, too.

Please check our schedule for activities, events, camps, missions opportunities, and more!

I’m grateful for a people that invest in the young and am thankful that we can grow together!

If you have questions or would like to chat, please don’t hesitate to reach out:
