DIRT (Disciples In Real Time)

First Baptist Student Ministry exists to . . .

  • Reach youth throughout the Golden Strip with the Gospel of Christ
  • Help youth understand and apply Scripture
  • Minister to youth and families
  • Lead youth in worship while providing fellowship and opportunities for service



If you're in 6th-12th grade, this is your time! We meet each Wednesday night in the College Street Cafe at the Downtown Campus (6:30-7:30pm) and in room W-102 at the West Campus (6:15-7:30pm). We have live music, videos, games, and a great time of study. Come and be a part of what God is doing.

Connect4 Small Groups

Downtown Campus

A great time of fun and Bible study at 10:00am. We have classes for all youth in our new Student Building across the street from the Family Life Center. This is an excellent time to come and learn with your friends. Do not miss Donut Day on the first Sunday of each month.

West Campus

Youth small group classes begin at 11:15am. High School students meet in W-102 and the Middle School students meet in W-107.


If you are ready for a challenge, join a discipleship small group for a weekly time of small group study with other students and an adult leader. This is for ALL Downtown and West Campus students 6th-12th grade. We meet Sunday nights at 6:15pm in the College Street Cafe on the Downtown Campus.

  • Student Discipleship will meet for the Fall Sunday, August 23 - Sunday, November 29
  • Student Discipleship will meet for the Spring Sunday, January 3 - Sunday, May 22 

Student Reach

If you're in 8th-12th grade, you may participate in Student Reach on Tuesday evenings. During this time, students receive evangelism training- an awesome time to learn how to share Jesus with your friends, family, and anyone you meet. We also connect with other students who have visited First Baptist Simpsonville.

  • Student Reach for the Fall will meet Tuesday, September 15 - Tuesday, December 1
  • Student Reach for the Spring will meet Tuesday, January 12 - Tuesday, May 3

Registering Online

Thank you for your interest in attending a student event at First Baptist Simpsonville! We are in the process of transitioning all of our registrations online. We want to do our very best to make event registrations as easy as possible. Below you will find a step-by-step guide for how to register and pay for any student event. It may take some time to work out all the kinks, but we feel this is the best way to make sure we do not lose any information or payments. The benefits of online registration are that you can pay with your debit/credit card, see what events you have registered for, and track your payments. If you choose to pay with cash or checks (which you mail or drop off at the Church Office at 3 Hedge Street Simpsonville, SC 29681), we will input this information into the system, and it will appear on your account as well.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to strive to do things with excellence!
