Student Ministries

 Our Youth Group

6th-12th grade students meet every Sunday and Wednesday night at 7pm in the youth room, located upstairs of the fellowship hall.

The ministry is a place where there is sound doctrine, theology, and Christian apologetics taught on the student's level.

It is a place where they can have fun and fellowship while receiving the truth of Jesus Christ. 

Our youth group also has different get together thoughout the year along with their annual summer camp at Look Up Lodge, located in the mountains of Greenville County.

Meet Our Student Minister

Hi! My name is Matt Mahaffey and I am the pastor of student ministries at Northside Baptist Church. I started attending church when I was in the 5th grade where, not long after, I accepted Christ at the age of 10 and later felt the call to student ministry while I was in middle school. 

I've been a student leader within my own youth group growing up and have interned under youth pastors to grasp and learn everything I could about working with teenagers and to gain more knowledge of Jesus and his ministry. I believe God lead me to Northside Baptist Church at a time where they needed that leadership for the students. My ultimate goal is for students to come to know and have a personal relationship with Jesus. I want them to be able to understand the gospel and teach it to them in such a way where they can understand it and are able to take it home and to their schools to share with their family and friends. I believe that through Christ I can reach this generation to ultimately reach others for Christ within their church, their community, and the world.
