Young Adults Common Ground
In February of 2023, we did a deep dive into the financial aspect of all ministries. We asked every minister to review how and where all monies were being spent. We then asked them to consider where the Lord might lead them in the future. After reviewing all the available information, we discussed the proper allocation of funds. As you review the expenses for the 2023-2024 Ministry Plan, you will notice:
• Administrative and personnel needed to increase due to inflation. However, we review all systems to find cost savings and manage expenses.
• Many of the changes in line-item ministries reflect the reallocation of funds. We believe recategorizing many of our expenses will help focus our efforts on ministering directly to people.
• Going through this process, we also realized that we must continue caring for an aging facility while planning to maximize its use. That is why we have dedicated almost 3% of our budget to capital improvement.
Frisco First Baptist Church is a church on mission to invite people into relationships with Jesus and each other. Through providing Gospel centered worship services, LIFEGroups for all ages, and opportunities to serve in your area of giftedness, we believe Jesus will use us to reach Frisco for Him.
But we can't do it without your help...

Partnering with Mission Arlington
Co:Mission Conference 2022
Over 300 students and leaders from seven different campuses gathered in Frisco, TX the last weekend of September to learn, be encouraged, and fellowship at the Co:Mission Conference. Nick Gainey Band led worship and Austin Wadlow from the Salt Network spoke on counting the cost of following Jesus. Nick Cooper challenged students at our second session and Paul Worcester, collegiate director for the North American Mission Board, closed the weekend out. Students chose from ten different breakout sessions with topics like relationships, mental health, and discipleship.
On top of all of this, our students were challenged to contact friends and family to raise money to start a new Co:Mission campus. In just 24 hours, the students raised over $21,000! Thank you for your prayers for Co:Mission Conference 2022! Praise God for always doing immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine!
Student Mission Trip Reports
Far Away From Home in Zambia, Africa
18 college, high school, and adults traveled to Zambia with J-Life ministries to share the Gospel and help with construction at the Ministry Center for pastors. The team visited churches, orphanages, and schools, sharing the Gospel through singing, skits, and preaching. Many came to know Jesus during their time! This was a life-changing trip for the team as well, as they were immersed in the culture of Zambia. The Student Ministry has continued the partnership with believers in Zambia by raising funds for a greenhouse that will built at the end of year.
Touching Lives in Tulsa
75 middle school students traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma to minister in the inner-city with an organization called John 3:16 Ministries. Students volunteered at a VBS, shared the gospel parks, me the needs of homeless people, supported food banks, and helped out at a rehabilitation horse ranch. Student were bold in sharing their faith each day. Students followed up with several food banks in the area by donating funds once they returned home.
Working Hard in West Virginia
61 high school students traveled to to share Jesus in the poorest county in the United States, Welch, West Virginia. Some of our students provided a week-long VBS for a church in Twin Branch, West Virginia, while other students opted to do some city revitalization work in Welch. Eight kids professed Jesus at VBS! Our students cleaned, painted, and installed flooring in several buildings so that a church could be established. Students continued their partnership with believers in Welch by raising funds for a new pregnancy resource center.
Serving at Home: Mission Arlington
21 high school students traveled to Mission Arlington to work with children in apartments, organize food and clothing donations, and distribution of personal care items to the community in need. Blue students have partnered with Mission Arlington for the past 16 years!
