BBYC is an annual youth conference hosted by FBC the beginning of November. The dates for this year’s BBYC are NOVEMBER 4-5 with registration beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, November 4. All junior and senior high youth are invited to attend (grades 7-12).
The cost for each attendee is $30 with two sponsors attending at no charge. Additional sponsors will be $30 each. Included in the cost is a conference note book, three meals, and some great surprises. We are excited to have Matt Stahlman as as our guest speaker this year. Matt is the director of Beyond Borders Ministries that strives to prepare the next generation of foreign missionaries.

Bible quizzing is a great way for youth to have fun and learn God’s Word. We trust that you will get involved in the quiz this year. It does not cost anything extra! Quiz teams are as big as you choose for them to be, however, there can only be five team members or less quizzing at one time. The extra team members will be “on the bench” until put into play by their team captain or until one of the other members “quizzes out” (answers 20 questions correctly). The winning team will take home the Traveling Trophy and a group gift!
Quizzing Scripture: Acts 1-5
Memory verses: Acts 1:8, 11, 14 / 2:4, 17, 41 / 3:6, 13, 19 / 4:4, 12, 20 / 5:3, 29, 41
Some things that we do to prepare for a quiz are as follows:
Our teens write practice questions and use these questions to quiz each other. We occasionally have the quiz team meet for a mock quiz using the practice questions. We assign specific verses to each team member but encourage all members to memorize all verses.
Please note that there will be group photo opportunities at this event. The motto for the day is “dress your best”!
- Boys: dress pants and shirt with tie
- Girls: dresses or skirts (non form-fitting, below-the-knee and no low necklines in front or back)
GAMES & ACTIVITIES
There will be some outdoor activities so teens and sponsors will need to dress appropriately for outside weather. No games will be so aggressive as to require girls to wear pants.
Boys: dress pants and shirt with tie
Girls: dresses or skirts (non form-fitting, below-the-knee and no low necklines in front or back)
Thank you for helping our young people in presenting a Christ-like appearance. Please help us by making sure your group complies with these dress code guidelines.
Join us this year in our video skit competition. All youth groups are encouraged to participate!
Each skit must be on video or DVD and is not to exceed 5 minutes in length. The theme must correspond with the conference theme—SPEAKING THE WONDERFUL WORKS or ACTS 1-5. The conference dress standards apply to the video skits. There is no registration needed, just bring the DVD/video with you to the conference and turn it in when you register on Friday afternoon. The possibilities are endless! Use your imagination, write a skit, and film it.
We had a great time last year watching the skits that were prepared. We would love to see yours, also! If you would like to participate this year, please contact your youth sponsor.
GOSPEL TRACT CHALLENGE
Each teen is encouraged to design their own gospel tract. It can be hand-drawn or computer generated. We are looking for a design idea that will draw someone in to read and see the plan of salvation. There are no layout restrictions.
