REAL STUDENT MINISTRY
Emory Baptist Church Student Ministry
Philippians 1:9-11 says,
"And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God."
Paul prays that the Philippians' love for Christ would produce in them "epignosis," or "real knowledge." Paul's word implies a real sense of genuine knowledge and understanding that (as Paul continues) helps the Philippians know the right and best way to live. My vision for ministry is that I personally would live with this compass of knowing the things that really matter and living according to the leading of the Spirit. Further, I want to help others to find this depth of knowledge through obedience to the Spirit of God and the Word of God.
We have named the student ministry at Emory Baptist Real Student Ministry because we want to lead students to love Christ with a devotion that leads them into the "epignosis" of a life surrendured to Him.

Camp Zephyr 2023 - July 17-21
Emory Baptist Church is once again going to Camp Zephyr in Sandia, TX. It is near Corpus Christi and it is such a good experience. It is a tremendous opportunity for students to get together and study the Bible with each other, encourage each other, and build relationships with other Christian students.
EBC is going to Camp Zephyr July 17-21. Students can sign up now for this summer's camp.
More info is at CampZephyr.org
