The teen years can be quite challenging, confusing and crazy! A solid foundation is a must for successfully navigating this time. At Cleveland Baptist Church we believe that the only foundation for life is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Cleveland Baptist Church has been introducing teenagers to the Lord for 54 years. During this time we have had just 4 youth pastors!
Teens will be strengthened through a weekly Bible Study time with other teenagers at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday morning. The High School department meets in Room 202 and the Jr. High department meets in Room 201. There is also a monthly activity that is planned for teens in the youth department. In addition to this each year’s summer calendar is packed with three exciting events: Youth Camp, SMITE (missions trip) and the Great Lakes Youth Conference.
Come join us this Sunday. We hope to see you soon!
Teen camp is held each year at Camp CoBeAc in Michigan. Next year’s camp will be held Monday, June 9 – Saturday, June 14. Our guest preacher for the week will be Evangelist Adrian Burden. Join us for a great week of games, activities, competition, preaching, singing and good Christian fellowship. Check out this video from a past teen camp…

Training Teens for Christian Work
A positive approach to the positives and negatives of the Christian life
Are you tired of teens that don’t know why they believe what they say they believe? T.T.C.W. can help you take your teens from a head knowledge to a heart knowledge of Scripture. This program is designed to help young teens understand the why’s behind the Baptist faith and encourage life-long dedication.
A comprehensive plan for success
Today’s youth are faced with many perplexing temptations. The only answer is turning to God’s Word, for therein lie the answers to every problem. In the midst of lowered parental standards, watered-down preaching, increased school and social pressures and a new generation of looseness, we want to introduce this program.
In today’s world, we must know how to measure sin—hence, the Ruler of Christian Living. In Year One of the program, your teens will learn how to decide for themselves whether something is sin or not based on the principles found in God’s Word. The idea is not just to present “rules” of the Christian life, but the “why’s” and principles upon which to base all decisions in life.
Each sin discussed has a positive solution presented. Daily application of the Ruler of Christian Living will assist each one who learns it to live a life that pleases the Lord. Our goal is to inform and admonish young teens to live a more godly, sin-hating, Christ-honoring life. These lessons were developed by Evangelist Hal Webb. Dr. Webb has been a world-renown evangelist for over 50 years. His wisdom and years of experience have added to the success of this program.
Just as a battery needs positive and negative terminals, so does the Christian if the power of God is going to flow out to others. There is a great lethargy and lukewarmness today toward the fundamental, proven requirements of obedient, godly living. All Christians know they should pray, study God’s Word and witness to others. Millions, though, are too busy, lazy, careless or whatever to keep these vital avenues of relationship with God and man open and paramount in their lives.
It is our prayer that this program will urge many teens to be “doers of the word, and not hearers only.” James 1:22
