Heart of the South is a ministry of Peoples Baptist Church, bringing together like-minded churches with the purpose of influencing the next generation for the cause of Christ. Our Teen Explosions are excitement-packed events full of games and skits, singing and preaching, and great food with new friends, providing opportunity for fellowship with others who share their faith and promote their desire to know Christ better.

Hosted at Peoples Baptist Church by Dr. David McCoy (pastor) and Bro. Nathan Rickner (youth pastor)

Guest Speaker

Dr. Johnny Pope

Dr.Johnny Pope has been a friend of Peoples Baptist Church and of teenagers for many years. A favorite preacher for many, Dr. Johnny Pope is in constant demand in churches and conferences across the country. With dynamic preaching and edge-of-your-seat storytelling, he makes the Word of God come alive for his listeners. Having pastored in Houston for the last 37 years and having preached for even longer, he has proven his love for God and people. It is our privilege to have him with us for Teen Explosion.

Next Teen Explosion

Tuesday, June 4 @ 7 PM

Churches these days tend to err toward trendy. Malls are trendy; churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there's still a church that feels like a church. It's not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It's timeless, as in 2000 years ago.
