RELAUNCH: FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

Welcome to Relaunch! Here you can find information on the Relaunch Campaign, and our current efforts to create an engaging and practical space for ministry to Middle School Students. You can find information such as total amounts given, building progress, pictures, updates and more.

The next generation has always been important to the people of Olive Baptist. Our history has been one of the older generations building up and handing off the ministry to the coming generations and the Middle School Ministry Building is an outgrowth of that ministry philosophy. This new building while multi-purpose and multi-generational in its usefulness has the primary focus of educating and discipling those in the critical years of middle school. It will be through the use of this new facility that the people of Olive will seek to instill in middle school youth the values and virtues of our Lord Jesus Christ so that they too will grow as believers and one day pass on their spiritual heritage to a new generation.
