the Shield: FBC Elmore City Student Ministry

"In every situation take the Shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one." - Ephesians 6:16

The student ministry here at FBC Elmore City seeks to lead students to having a strong
foundation of faith in Jesus. With that foundation we seek to help our students to be
strengthened and used by the Lord to do incredible things in His name.
The name “the Shield” comes from Ephesians 6:16 referring to the Shield of Faith, which
is used to extinguish all the flames of the evil one. Students these days face many situations
where the evil one pushes them away from Jesus. However, we want to help build such strong
faith in the hearts of our students that when they face evil, they can not only stand strong in
their own faith in Jesus, but alongside their brothers and sisters in Christ as well.
