At GBUMC Student Ministries, you matter, you are loved, you meet Jesus and grow in your walk with Him.
Join in as we seek to transform the world by becoming disciples of Jesus Christ in our schools, our homes, our sports teams, workplaces, and our friendships.
Students in middle school and high school in the Gulf Breeze, Tiger Point, Pensacola, and Pensacola Beach areas.
We also welcome student visitors who may be vacationing here for a short or extended time!
It’s an exciting time to be a teen - there is much opportunity and information at your fingertips and we want to walk alongside you as you grow and discover your unique gifts and purpose in this world.
It’s also a difficult time to be a teen - there’s so much fear, misinformation, confusion, and rapid change that it feels unsafe and overwhelming.
By focusing on Safety, Substance, and Scripture as our guides, we navigate the difficult, joyful, and exciting aspects of this season of your life with hope and healing, with each other, in the light of Christ.
