The vision given to our church from God was “Take Back Ground,” by preaching and teaching the uncompromising gospel of the Lord. Under the teachings of our current pastor Dr. Bobby Sanders, Corona First Baptist Church has been successful in bridging denominations and cultures by destroying racial barriers in the Mt. Juliet community. But being a church of change and excitement, Pastor Sanders saw the need to do more. He had a vision of one day creating a way to future education and sowing into the lives of our youth and adult students. After two years of prayer and seeking the Lord’s guidance, Pastor Sanders was given the okay to proceed with his vision. In 2011,Y.E.S.U (Youth Enrichment Summer University ) and the Furthering Your Education Scholarship Program was established.
The Y.E.S.U program was created with a desire to inspire and engage our diverse community of children ages 5-13 to ensure continuously academic achievement and personal growth. Our Christian education department also assist college bound high school seniors through our scholarship program, to meet the needs they face while aspiring for higher education. We have been blessed to have sponsored 20 students moving on to higher education. With your support and prayers we hope to assist many more.
In the four years of our existence, we have been successful in raising funds to assist in the cost of a higher education. We established Spring N2 Action, our semi-annual 5k walk-a-thon to raise funds while encouraging better health and education . This is only a portion of what we have planned to futher this goal.
We must start somewhere
Let’s come together and Sow Good Seed
Our Children Are The Future
So we must consider their need
Of love and full commitment
We must nurture them so that they can grow
It’s our place to give support
And to teach them what they need to know
So that they will one day stand
And tell others of their story
They’ll tell of how it started here
And with pride. Give God The Glory
We are a 501(c)(3) organization that is seeking your support in helping our youth and adult students aspire for higher education. Through your donations and prayers, you will be allowing us to sow into the youth if our future
