Connecting young people with opportunities for spiritual growth and personal development is the main focus of the crew. Under the direction of Youth Pastor Justin Tarpley, Beyond Belief Youth have regular youth activities, as well as encouraging FPCO youth to reach out to their friends with the good news of the gospel! Area youth rallies and summer youth camps add an extra dimension of fun and excitement to the slate of regular scheduled youth events.
Created to reach out to college students, PYF is a chartered organization at the University of Mississippi. Led by PYF Coordinators Justin and Ginger Tarpley, students come together in a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy conversation, snacks, games, and Bible study. During the Fall and Spring semesters, PYF meets regularly in the Student Union on the beautiful campus of Ole Miss.
The FPCO family cares about our community, including those dealing with substance abuse and life-issue problems. Since 2008, we have partnered with Spirit of Freedom Ministries to offer Bible based guidance and instruction geared to bring self awareness and understanding to hurting men and women. CIP classes are offered at FPCO on a revolving schedule every Sunday afternoon at 4:30 pm. Participants may enter the class at any time, and, upon meeting the requirements of the 20 week program, receive a certificate of completion. View the Spirit of Freedom Ministries website.
Led by Audrey Sibley, Becoming! is a ministry focused exclusively on meeting the needs of ladies.
