Student Ministry

Burkemont has a long history of exciting ministry to youth, grades 7 to 12 and singles 18 to 26.  The purpose of this ministry is three-fold:

1)  To introduce young people to the Lord Jesus Christ through a clear presentation of the Gospel.

2)  To build young Christian lives by helping them to become mature disciples.  The objectives are met through Christian Discipleship classes, weekly age-graded Bible studies, mission service, fellowship, and leadership opportunities.  In addition to these regularly scheduled activities are Summer Camps, Mission Trips, Fall Retreat, Winter Ski Retreat and Disciple Now Weekend.

3)  The third facet of our Burkemont Youth Ministry is the ministry to parents.  Parental involvement is a welcomed and necessary ingredient to what we accomplish.  Monthly planning and informational meetings are scheduled to allow parents to volunteer services or give helpful feedback.  These meetings are on the 1st Wednesday night of every month at 7:00pm.

Mission work is a vital part of the Burkemont Baptist Church Student Ministry. Throughout the year, students and adults in the ministry help to support the people of Morganton and Burke County in many different ways.

Mission Madness - Students come together on their summer vacation, and throughout the year, to help paint, repair, clean up and minister to any needs that are in the community. This is a hands-on mission opportunity for the students and their families.

Samaritans Purse - Before Christmas, students drive up to Boone to the Samaritans Purse distribution cent to help pack up all of the shoeboxes to send to children around the world.

Habitat for Humanity – The Student Ministry at Burkemont was instrumental in the construction of the 100th Habitat for Humanity house in Burke County. Over the past few years, construction, painting, and landscaping have continued throughout our county as students continue to volunteer.

World Changers – Morganton has been blessed to host World Changers. For the last several years, Burkemont students and adults have served the work crews and continue partnerships beyond the week of World Changers.
