First Baptist Church Minnesota Ave


”Let your heart retain my words; keep my commands and live. Get Wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:4-7 (KJV)

In support of the Pastor’s vision for First Baptist Church, the Strayhorn Educational Outreach Ministry will plan and implement a supplemental bible-based program of training and educational empowerment for First Baptist Church congregants and the broader community.


The Strayhorn Educational Outreach Ministry will provide experiences and opportunities that will lead program participants from educational failure to educational success, from economic dependence to self-reliance, from feelings of hopelessness to confidence in possibilities for achievement, and ultimately from joblessness to employability. These experiences/opportunities may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Elementary and Secondary Seminars for Students and Parents
  • SAT Preparation Sessions
  • The Marshall Heights Community Development Organization (MHCDO)
  • Scholarship- Investment Program (SIP)
  • Community Homework/Tutorial Center
  • Cultural Enrichment Activities
  • Opportunities for Community/Volunteer Services
  • Character Development Contest & Workshops
  • Job Readiness Program
  • Job Fair
  • College Tours
  • College Fairs
  • Adult Basic Education
  • Computer Literacy Classes
  • Other
