Student Ministry Curriculum

OUR CURRICULUM

We partner with parents towards getting the church and the home on the same page. We use a proven national strategy called “Orange”. When “red” (the family) comes together with “yellow” (the church) the combined influence creates a major impact orange. We aspire for students to discover God, take ownership of their faith, and become positive influencers among their friends.

BEAUX & DEBS

This hallmark event in the life of Concord began over 38 years ago under the leadership and vision of our founding pastor, Dr. E.K. Bailey along with Sister Mae Frances Smith, Sister Peggy Caldwell, and Sister Frances Riley. Pastor Bailey’s vision was to highlight the accomplishments of our youth and prepare and present them to Christian society. At Concord, we not only present them to Christian society, but we also present them to the Lord!
