1st Alliance youth

we love because he first loved us

1 john 4:19

This verse captures the focus of 1st Alliance Youth’s mission: seeking to live by the life-changing, obedient, vast, and emboldening love of God because He 1st loved us. Here at 1st Alliance Youth, we are not satisfied to stop at a shallow knowledge of God. Instead, we desire to grow in enjoying Him fully as our Lord and Savior, sharing Him with a desperate world, glorifying His name with our lives, and being equipped as critical thinkers who stand firmly on the truth of His infallible Word. Each week, our youth come together in a healthy environment for fostering godly community and for digging deeper in their adoration of the one true Living God.

What do we do when we meet?

On an average Wednesday night, we enjoy snacks, games, and fellowship before diving into worship and an in-depth study of God's Word.

When and where do we meet?

6-8pm during the school year
6-8:30pm during the summer

Director of Youth Ministries

Meet our Director of Youth Ministries: Nathaniel Smith! Nathaniel has been involved in First Alliance Church of Franklin's youth group as both a youth and as a volunteer leader for nearly 8 years before he took the job to become the new youth director in the summer of 2022. Originally, Nathaniel intended to become a high school teacher with his dual degrees of history and education, but God led him to be the minister of our youth here at First Alliance.

Part of his mission as the youth director is to guide students to (1) enjoy and love God fully as their personal Lord and Savior, (2) live completely to glorify His name, and (3) be equipped as critical thinkers who stand firmly on the truth of His Word.

Nathaniel has called Franklin home for 16 years and is soon to be married to his lovely fianceé Sarah-Jane Bowman.
