GRACE PLACE STUDENTS
It is our desire here at Grace Place that our student ministry makes much of Christ.
The aim of the student ministry is to teach students who Christ is, how to serve Him, and how to serve others. Our hope is that students will graduate into adulthood with an understanding of what it means to walk the faith well.

Super Summer 2022
Super Summer exists to inspire and equip students as Kingdom leaders focusing on 6 core values; spiritual growth, Spiritual Disciplines, Leadership, Evangelism, Discipleship, and Service/Ministry. Our belief is by equipping the leaders in our student ministry, they will be in a position to make a significant impact in the life of Grace Place. In order to do this, we ask that only leadership students be allowed to attend. To help with this, we have set guidelines to help evaluate a student’s readiness concerning attending Super Summer. During the required interview process such as completing this bible study reading plan, attending small group on Sunday’s at 9:45 a.m. and Mid-Week Service at 6:45 p.m., and exemplify leadership characteristics in our student ministry.

Mission Trip 2022
The reason students are encouraged to attend our Mission Trip is that we believe it’s what Jesus called us to in the Great Commandment to make disciples of all nations.
You will get to love our communities that we serve in by conducting a “Camp Inside Out” which is essentially a Backyard Bible Club which consists of games, songs, Bible stories, testimonies and lunch!
In the afternoons, we will partner with one of our communities or ministry partners in the Tulsa metro area to do projects that will help clean up an area or move a ministry forward.
Where: Tulsa Metro Area
When: June 26 – July 1
Falls Creek 2022
Falls Creek Youth Camp exists to support Grace Place Student Ministry’s efforts to reach lost students in their communities and to raise up a generation of teenagers with an authentic walk with God and who actively share their faith.
The yearly theme is selected from a three-year cycle emphasizing root issues in the Christian student’s journey:
(1) Knowing the Character and Nature of God
(2) Spiritual Disciplines
The morning schedule is designed for believers. We hope to challenge them to walk with God, share their faith in Christ more consistently, and to know God more deeply through relevant worship and creative Biblical teaching. The afternoon schedule is designed to involve students in a myriad of activities which engage them physically, socially, and spiritually. These activities are designed to help students interact with one another in both fun and contemplative ways. During the evening tabernacle services on Tuesday through Friday nights, the gospel will be clearly presented and students will be provided with an opportunity to respond.
Throughout the week of camp, there is a high priority on Scripture, worship, relationships within the local church, and opportunities for students and sponsors to sharpen their skills and prepare to consistently serve God after camp. Falls Creek is a camp designed to reach and equip the students of Oklahoma, but it is open to churches across the nation who share the Biblical values of the churches of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.

Sunday @ 9:30am
(Located in Student Building)
Sunday morning Bible study is a great opportunity for our students to hear truth and discuss how that applies in their lives. Our groups are divided by age and gender for the purpose of aimed and open discussion.
Sunday @ 10:45am
(Located in Worship Center)
We encourage our students to be a part of the corporate worship. It is our desire that they engage, find fellowship by worshipping alongside their families, and those who are not a part of the student ministry. Students can learn a lot by watching those around them worship.
Wednesday @ 6:30pm
(Located in Student Building)
MidWeek Worship is the best way for your student to engage others here at Grace Place. This night consists of games, sometimes food, worship through music, and a text-driven bible lesson; all of this is aimed to connect students to each other and to Christ.
What role do you play in your student’s spiritual formation?
Woven throughout the Bible we see parents as the primary disciplers for their kids (Prov. 1:8; Ps. 78:1–8; Eph. 6:4). The single most important social influence on the religious and spiritual lives of adolescents is the parents. The best social predictor, although not a guarantee, of what the religious and spiritual lives of youth will look like is what the religious and spiritual lives of their parents do look like. Our goal is to equip parents to produce equipped teenagers who will eventually parent in a similar fashion. Multi-generational discipleship until Christ returns—that’s the end goal.
