In the Mid-1980's, the Lord laid it on New Manna's heart to begin what is now know as the New Manna Youth Choir. God began blessing and the Youth Choir had the privilege to sing at various Youth Meetings, Camp Meetings, Revivals, etc. This fed the church's desire to have more for their teenagers. In 2000, the Lord called Bro. Tony Shirley to be the Youth Pastor. He served faithfully in this position until January of 2004 when he became Pastor of the church. Later that year, Bro. Jason and Sis. Trisha Garner moved their family (Michael, Trason and Kayleb) from Maryland to Marion, North Carolina.
In the years following, the Youth Ministry of New Manna Baptist Church has seen the Lord do many great and wonderful things. They meet on Wednesday nights at 7:00 for Teen Service. This allows the teens to hear preaching geared towards their environment. Also, at 10:00 each Sunday Morning, the church offers Teen Sunday School for young people ages 12 to 18. Bro. Jason and Bro. Josh Jarrett teach the Young Men and Sis. Trisha, Mrs. Krause and Mrs. Styles teach the Young Ladies. Each week, the teens have various events such as Teen Soul Winning, Teen Night at the Garner's House, Youth Choir Trips and Teen outings. Throughout the year, the Youth Ministry does special events such as the New Manna Youth Rally, Teen Camps and the Public School Revival.
We invite your teenagers to come be a part of what God is doing in the New Manna Youth Group. For more information, please feel free to contact Bro. Jason at one of the following:
