Youth Music

Youth Choir

The First Baptist Nashville Youth Choir is a dynamic ministry open to all students in grades 7-12. 

Our Youth Choir provides ministry and fellowship opportunities designed to glorify and praise God through the use of music in our worship services, as well as ministering in prisons, nursing homes, hospitals, and soup kitchens. 

Our annual Youth Choir Mission Tour has afforded our students many life-changing adventures to places including New York City, San Diego, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and San Antonio. Students are not required to be members of First Baptist Nashville in order to participate. 

Rehearsals are held at 5 p.m. Sunday. We also enjoy a time of fun and fellowship, complete with a complimentary Snack Supper, immediately following rehearsal.
