Authentic Youth

The Student Ministry of FBC Athens (Authentic Youth) exists for students and their families. We seek to provide an authentic place to grow, live, and struggle with faith. This is a safe spot for students to be real. We embrace our imperfections but believe God is calling each of us to a different way of being in this world.
