Kurt Copeland

Role: Youth Pastor - Franklin Road Baptist Church

Kurt was born in Pekin, IL on February 23, 1971. He is the youngest of four boys. Kurt trusted in Christ as his personal Savior on January 11, 1982 at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Mattoon, IL. Pastor Norm Amstutz led him to the Lord.
The Copeland family moved to Murfreesboro, TN in December of 1985. While working as a Ranch Hand at the Bill Rice Ranch during the summer of 1986, Kurt surrendered to full time Christian service. Kurt graduated from Franklin Road Christian School in 1989 and enrolled at Pensacola Christian College for the fall of 1989 majoring in Missions. After graduation in December 1993, Kurt and Christy (Payne) (also from Murfreesboro, TN area) were married on January 1, 1994. After serving 2 years as a youth pastor in Florida, on June 1st of 1994, Kurt answered the call to return to Franklin Road Baptist Church as Youth Pastor. Kurt was also able to earn a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies from West Coast Baptist College in 2009 and an earned Doctorate Degree in Pastoral Ministries from Bethany Divinity College in 2017.
God has given the Copeland’s two beautiful daughters, Angel Dawn was born on October 9, 1997 and then their second little girl, Gabrielle Daye, was born on November 7, 2000. God has blessed the Copeland family tremendously!
God has also blessed the youth ministry of Franklin Road Baptist Church. Since the spring of 2008, the youth ministry had experienced a strong touch of revival. With an average of over 200 teens in attendance each Sunday, souls saved weekly, and teenagers surrendering to the Will of God; the touch of God has been very evident. It is Kurt’s desire to see teens saved and surrender to live for the Lord with their life. After 26 years of serving in youth work together, Kurt & Christy feel God’s call to reach teenagers for Christ.

One of the "hot button" areas in ministry all together, but especially in youth ministry. This session is designed to give a loving and caring approach to building strong Biblical convictions and standards in the hearts of teenagers.

The main focus of this session is targeting the home of the youth pastor. All too often we are programmed to present ourselves in public one way, but can live a totally different life in private - where it matters most - in the HOME! However, we will cover other relationships we encounter. We will cover the relationship with the pastor, fellow staff members, and youth workers.

We never want to face the issue of how to handle a teenager that fails in a public way. However, if you have been in ministry anytime at all, you will know this happens to the best of us. How can we Biblically and practically help a teenager that has failed? What is our responsibility? This session will cover some practical helps reaching the hurting teenager.

If I had to pick a topic that is one of the most important missing elements in most youth ministries, it would be the relationships with parents. This session will cover the teens relationship with their own parents as well as the youth pastor's relationship with the parents of the teens he is called to pastor.
