ROB Student Ministry Schedule

Youth Bible Study: Sunday Mornings from 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

The Gathering: Wednesday Nights from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Renovation of the Heart - High School Boys Bible Study

When we become a follower of Christ the development doesn’t end there.  We go through a process called “sanctification” or becoming more like Christ.  We don’t flip a switch and instantly become super-Christians, we must begin the procedure of renovating our hearts to be more like Christ.  This is something the Holy Spirit does in us and alongside us as we put on the character of Christ.

If you are a high school young man or the father of a high school young man we invite you to join us for this weekly study every Sunday evening at 7:00 PM in the youth room at ROBC.  If you have any questions, please email Christian at

We promise to feed your bellies, your hearts, and your minds!

“And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25


Christian Johns, Minister to Youth/Students


Share a bit about yourself. 

I grew up just south of Houston in Texas City.  My father was (and still is) the youth minister at First Baptist Church there in Texas City.  Some would say that my ministry started way back then with the hours I put in constantly at the church.  Officially, River Oaks Baptist is my first staff position, I started in September of 2018.  I received my undergraduate degree in Finance & Accounting at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and followed that up with recently graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX with my Master of Divinity, or MDiv.  A few things I enjoy doing are going to concerts, musicals, and sporting events!  I am a huge Houston Astros fan, so it is great to be back in the area where there are others like me!

What do you enjoy most about youth ministry?

Youth ministry is great because I get to hang around with students all day and pour into their lives.  I mentioned above how I enjoy going to concerts, musicals, and sporting events, and I didn’t just mean professional ones!  I enjoy seeing students who are passionate about what they do.  My hope is to ignite that same passion for Christ in these students.  The youth ministry of today is soon to be the adult ministry of tomorrow.  Eventually, these students will be the ones to lead our churches in both ministerial and layperson roles.  My desire is for these students to build a solid foundation of faith and community that will carry them through their whole lives.
