Welcome to the Student Ministry

Welcome to the Kingsland Student Ministry – the KSM! Our goal is to partner with the greater mission and vision of Kingsland Baptist Church by raising up students who experience true fulfillment in Jesus Christ, one home at a time. We want to see students rooted and grounded in the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ, to come alongside families in blessing their teens, and to inspire students to be disciple-makers in the world. We can’t wait to meet you and hope you find this information helpful to getting connected. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the KSM office - 281-675-7839.
