Heart of the South is a ministry of Peoples Baptist Church, bringing together like-minded churches with the purpose of influencing the next generation for the cause of Christ. Our Teen Explosions are excitement-packed events full of games and skits, singing and preaching, and great food with new friends, providing opportunity for fellowship with others who share their faith and promote their desire to know Christ better.

Hosted at Peoples Baptist Church by Dr. David McCoy (pastor) and Bro. Nathan Rickner (youth pastor)

Guest Speaker

Dr. Lou Rossi

Dr. Lou Rossi has had a heart for teenagers since he got saved at the age of 19. Over thirty-five years ago, he and his wife stepped out together to reach the teens of Baltimore, Maryland. As God blessed their explosive youth ministry, the Lord began to open doors around the country. Since that time, he has served in full-time evangelism and has pastored two great churches, the Forrest Hills Baptist Church of Atlanta and the Granite Baptist Church of Baltimore. Itís our privilege to have him with us for this yearís Teen Explosion.

Next Teen Explosion

Tuesday, June 12 @ 7 PM

Churches these days tend to err toward trendy. Malls are trendy; churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there's still a church that feels like a church. It's not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It's timeless, as in 2000 years ago.
