Simply put, Basement412 Student Ministry is the youth group of Providence Baptist Church in Meadville, Mississippi. Our focus is on youth from 6th Grade through the 12th Grade. The Youth Pastor is Bro. David Pender.
We have a designated meeting area, The Basement. Which is...well...the old church basement that wasn't being used. The youth and other church members worked to get the basement cleaned, painted, and ready for use as the "youth basement". So now, you're beginning to understand where our name comes from, right?
The rest of the ministry name refers to a verse of Scripture, specifically, it is referring to 1 Timothy 4:12, a verse which is painted on the wall of The Basement in huge letters.
This verse reads as follows: "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." (1 Timothy 4:12 NIV).
This verse is also the motto for our student ministry. Often, youth feel that they are forgotten about, or not taken seriously by adults. This should not be the case. Our youth will be the leaders of our country one day. This motto reminds youth that they are important, and that they can be an example for others in the way they live.
The worship music we generally have is contemporary in style. We believe we should praise God with all of our heart, soul, and mind. And worship should be from the heart and full of joy and energy.
The messages are focused on the issues that teens face in today's world and how the Bible gives us the guidance on dealing with those.
