All about First Priority West Georgia...

Our goal 

To touch the life of every student on every campus in every community with the love and message of Jesus Christ before graduating High School.

The network
It's what First Priority is, a network of students, youth leaders, pastors, faculty sponsors, parents and local leaders. Through networking, we can do what we can't do alone. Things like Student Leadership Training, See You at The Pole Rallies, School Assemblies and CityWide Events, can only happen by working together.

Students
First Priority campus clubs are always student-initiated and student-led. That means the heart, desire, burden and direction come from the students themselves. While they can, and most times do, have adult guidance, students make up the leadership team for their school's campus club. Using the GO Strategy, the bless, pray, serve, and tell teams plan and promote club meetings and provide on-campus ministry.

Faculty sponsor
Campus clubs must have a faculty member who volunteers to assist the student leadership as needed. Some faculty sponsors are very hands-off while others are involved on a daily basis. They assist with facilities needs and problems that may arise there, and act as a liaison to school administrators. As you can see, the faculty sponsor is a very important part of the network.

Campus coach
Most times, a volunteer youth pastor serves in this capacity. But the duties of a campus coach are often filled by a senior pastor, parent or a teacher. Meeting with the student leaders, the campus coach gives direction, helps maintain focus and balance, and provides insight and ideas for club meetings and ministry initiatives. He or she is invaluable to the students in information and resourcing, and as their representative to the church community.

Local church
An important goal of First Priority is to provide community and ministry to our Christian students while at school. But an equally important goal is to help kids from the school campus locate and connect with a local church. Having local churches and their staff involved in The Network makes that possible. The local church can also provide resources and equipment, both for on-campus and after school ministries.

Community
Communities who support campus ministry have learned a great lesson: an investment into campus ministry is an investment into the future of the community. Every city impacted by strong campus ministry can see the benefits in better part-time employees today and better citizens for their future. We are proud of our relationships with Christian business leaders who support with their finances and with their time, with pastors and ministry teams who come alongside to offer their resources, and with parents who appreciate the impact campus ministry can have on our families. Through them, The Network is ministering to the parents, business and community leaders, teachers and pastors of tomorrow.
