FIRST SERVE - LOCAL MISSIONS

While First Baptist supports a number of our own missions, several other organizations around the city are already reaching areas in need. FBC partners with these ministries to support their missions. If you'd like to get involved, call the Ministry Coordinator listed for more information!

ESL: English as a Second Language

The "International Friends" program at First Baptist teaches English to the many refugees moving to Amarillo and shows Christ's love in practical ways. Our classes meet on Sunday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Over 300 students from sixteen countries are enrolled. They come from Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Sudan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Congo, India, Vietnam, Liberia, Panama, China, Burundi, and Peru. Thirty volunteer drivers bring students to classes, and forty-two volunteers teach classes ranging from basic ABC's to advanced conversation to GED preparation. Sundays also include classes for elementary school children, tutoring for middle school and high school students, and help for those preparing for their citizenship test.

PRISON MINISTRY

Our prison ministry teams work through curriculum designed to help men in both Texas Department of Criminal Justice units to become authentic Christian men.
