In 2015, Christian Education Council started the year with a brand new focus. With direction

from Pastor Walton, our name was officially changed to the Christian Education Ministry (CEM).

Along with a new name came a new mission statement: The mission of the Christian Education Ministry (CEM) is to provide strategic direction for Christian Education within First Baptist Church of Vienna. The ministry will advocate and promote the Word of God through Bible-based teaching.


We aim to:

– Determine the form and content of the teaching arm of the church.

– Provide continuity between educational materials and curriculum so that it is

consistent in its content with Bible-based teaching and the theme of the church.

– Review religious educational materials used within the church.

– Support church-wide programs, workshops, and meetings by reviewing surveys,

evaluating data, and providing feedback to the leadership of the church.
