We have chosen AWANA as a tool to continue to develop children. Even though we do not endorse all that AWANA suggests, we follow this ministry in many areas. The AWANA group meets on Sunday evenings during the school year from 6:00 - 7:30p.m. and has classes for ages 2 years old through 6th grade. Visit the Facebook Page, blog or email Bruce and Darby Smith at

Leadership TrainingFaith Bible Church is committed to training the next generation of Pastors, Deacons and Church-Planters through leadership training that is truly church-based. The model is local church leaders training other men in the context of ministry, focusing on character development and ministry skills, as well as sound theology. We offer intense leadership training simultaneously at various levels. Currently we have men who have gone through our training that we would consider sending out to churches that have leadership needs. Contact

The Gospel Project is used on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings to tell the story of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelations, through mutli-media presentations and other visual aids. The weekly lessons are accompanied with take homes for the children to work on and review throughout the week.

The sessions last 30-45 minutes and involve sharing of prayer requests, singing, and a lesson from God’s Word.

MissionsThe missions policy at Faith Bible Church is founded on God's revealed plan to redeem mankind and reestablish His sovereign rule within their lives. It is our desire to raise up servants from within Faith Bible who have faithfully ministered within this body. Our goal is to train, equip, support and send out individuals and teams committed to sharing God's good news of redemption. We consider it a high privilege and awesome responsibility to be a "sending church" in planting churches among other ethnic groups of the world. (Visit our Missions Page.)
