College Ministry

foundation-logo.jpgFOUNDATION is the College Ministry of First Baptist Church Texarkana. If you are a College student who is looking for a place to plug in while attending College, then Foundation is a place for you. Or if you are a college student looking to learn more about Christianity, Jesus, the Bible, etc., then we believe Foundation is a place for you. We believe that through life on life relationships and discipleship, that students can build a strong, healthy, and firm foundation in Christ that impacts the rest of their life. Foundation exists to:

Connect College students to Jesus, but also one another. This includes weekly events for fellowship, along with opportunities for someone who is investigating Jesus to come and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus.

Equip College students in practical ways to grow in your relationship with Christ while you are in school. We want to help you better know Jesus and make Him known to others. There are weekly small groups that you can get plugged into for discipleship, fellowship, and accountability.

Mobilize College students into opportunities post-grad. We want you to flourish in your relationship with Jesus long after college, regardless of the career path you choose. We want to serve you and help you tread the sometimes murky and difficult waters of adjusting to life after college.

We spend much of our time on the campuses of Texas A&M - Texarkana along with Texarkana College. We want to be where the students are, so we will have weekly and monthly events to serve college students. The best way to stay updated on all of our events is to follow our social media pages. We will post frequently to inform students of the various events and bible studies we have available throughout the Fall & Spring semesters. 

Events & More

College Lunch

Attention incoming Freshman and returning college students! We want to invite you to our Fall semester College Lunch. This is a lunch we host to invite college students in Texarkana to come and learn more about our College Ministry: Foundation. We do this to serve the students of our city/church, and to meet new incoming students. This is a great way to meet our staff, hear from our Pastor, and learn about how we plan to help college students flourish in their relationships with Jesus. We invite you to come, enjoy some free food and fellowship, and hear more! Invite your friends! 


College sunday school

We meet on Sunday Mornings for our College Bible Class at 9:15 AM in the Annex. The College Bible Class exists to help college students grow in a knowledge of God through His Word, to learn about different topics in our culture from a biblical perspective, and to serve as a place for college students at FBC Texarkana to fellowship with one another. 


Foundation Dinners are a monthly All-Campus Bible Study we host for college students to connect with other students from across campus, enjoy a free meal together, and hear a short talk over a passage of scripture that is relevant to college students who are seeking to either: investigate Jesus, or grow in their relationship with Jesus. These dinners happen the first Wednesday of every month with the first of the Fall Semester happening Sept 4th at 7:30 at FBC Texarkana.
