The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia understands that the majority of Youth ministry happens through the local congregation.
As a state organization we seek to provide resources and programs needed to enhance the work of the local church. CBF/GA currently provides the events listed below for your church youth group to participate in. We also offer networking opportunities for youth ministers throughout the year. For resources or networking opportunities please see our Staff Networks page.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect many of our partner congregations and their communities, CBF/GA, along with many other CBF states and regions, partnered with PASSPORT Camps to produce “WAKE UP!”
WAKE UP is a missions retreat curriculum that can be adapted to your youth ministry needs, whether you are looking for a weekend retreat (similar to CBF/GA’s March Mission Madness) or a one-day missions day for your community. Included in the WAKE UP curriculum are Bible studies and materials, worship gathering prompts, and suggestions for how to utilize the resource.
The Best Part of This New Curriculum is that it is Free!

CBF/GA is pleased to announce that Megan Turner Doud became the CBF/GA Coordinator of Young Baptist Ministries, effective February 1, 2021.
The search committee and Coordinating Council believe that Megan’s ministerial acumen, deep-rooted connectedness in CBF life, her engaging personality, and her wholehearted commitment to the Gospel will greatly benefit CBF/GA in this new position. Megan is tasked with developing and leading a CBF/GA-branded collegiate ministry as well connecting other collegiate and young adult congregational ministries with partner congregations in CBF/GA. She will coordinate, resource, and support ministries, ministers, and programming for both youth and children among our state congregational partners as well.
Megan, Brian, and their daughter Caroline will move to Macon this summer from Aiken, South Carolina, where she served as Minister for Students and Missions at First Baptist Church. She previously served as Student Ministry Resident at First Baptist Church, Huntsville, Alabama. Megan has a Master of Divinity degree from McAfee School of Theology and served as Student and Children’s Ministry intern at Johns Creek Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, where she was ordained.
She graduated from Carson Newman University and grew up in First Baptist Church, Knoxville, Tennessee. Megan has served on the Coordinating Council for CBF South Carolina, is past president of the CBF Youth Ministry Network, and currently serves on the CBF Ministries Council.
