For over 25 years, First Priority has worked to see the Hope of Christ in every student across the Greater-Birmingham Area. During this time, we have seen hundreds of thousands of lives transformed for the Kingdom. We thank God for His great power and we give Him all the praise and glory for these changed lives.
Wow, what another incredible year of First Priority and FPKids! First Priority has middle and high school clubs in 120 schools across Greater Birmingham. During the 2016-2017 school year, out of the schools that reported, approximately 13,000 students attended First Priority and FPKids every week when school was in session; and we are excited to announce that over 550 students made a decision for Christ on their school campus. There were countless more salvation decisions at First Priority sponsored events throughout this school year as well. These students were followed-up with to be discipled and become involved with a local church. Our God is good!
FPKids was a hit again this year with nearly 4,000 students in attendance each week. We have 44 FPKids clubs in elementary and intermediate schools across central Alabama. FPKids is a weekly curriculum that exposes children to the Biblical teachings of what “Jesus Said.” The FPKids curriculum consists of four parts that are repeated every month: Read It, See It, Live It, Tell It. Our mission is to reach students with Christ at a younger age.
The public school is the largest mission field in America. Students on our campuses work each week to ensure the Gospel is spread throughout their school. They are unashamed and eager to share their faith and help their friends mature in their relationship with Christ. The desire to see their friends accept the love and message of Jesus Christ is evident in the number of salvations reported for this school year. While students are reaching students, God is at work shaping lives.
In my 20 plus years of working with this great ministry, I can tell you that First Priority works and that lives are truly being changed. I am very blessed to have witnessed the incredible transformation of students first-hand. With this movement, all it takes is one student and an entire school and generation can be changed for Christ. God is truly amazing and we know He can do anything. We can’t wait to see how He is going to move in our schools and through our students in the years to come.
