The Friendship Baptist Church Children & Youth Ministry, (flo), empowers our Children & Youth through encouraging positive choices and confronting challenging issues.   We promote spiritual maturity and community leadership, by implementing life enhancing programs and activities with a goal of building Christian leaders for the next generation.

 Mission Statement:

To translate the present vision of the present church into a language that the next generation can (flo) with.

 Vision Statement:

To cultivate a community where Christ-like character is our priority.  This is accomplished by inviting the presence of God to live and dwell among us by creating an atmosphere under the anointing of the Holy Spirit that will allow for God's direction and purpose for our lives to be recognized: working from the principles received from the revelation.
