The Friends In Christ Ministry is team of Christian Mentors that acquaints new members (ages 17 +) with the current ministries and Services of New Gideon Baptist Church. We guide new members along a path of spiritual friendship to meet the immediate need of connection in a new church home. We pray that these connections blossom each individual into active membership where their spiritual purpose and passion is exercised with enthusiasm for the glory of God.


Our mission is to welcome new members of New Gideon Baptist Church with loving arms, encouraging them in the Word, and placing them where the Lord leads for active fulfilled membership.

Ministry Information

Friends In Christ and TLC meetings are conducted in a workshop type atmosphere where we learn about how the Word responds to the situations of the world and how best to help our members maintain a closer relationship with God foremost and how that relationship blossoms into the building up of Christian discipleship. We meet every Second Saturday at 11:00 am at New Gideon Baptist Church. We ask that all team members are amiable and led by the Spirit in service and in love. If you would like more information or have questions about joining this ministry, please contact Anteja Black at The Friends In Christ Ministry also works hand in hand with the TLC Ministry as they provide mentor program for those ages 17 and younger.
