SMITE is a ministry of Central Baptist Church designed to train young men and women so they in turn can reach boys and girls with the gospel. This week-long training institute every summer in May doesn’t have traditional activities associated with “camp;” instead, we provide tiered levels of training taught by instructors with a heart for ministry and a passion for seeing lost children come to the saving knowledge of Christ. During the afternoons, our students have the opportunity to put this training to practice through backyard Bible clubs in the neighborhoods in the surrounding areas. Each evening, we hold services that are both a time of rejoicing and praising God for what He has done and a time for preparing our hearts through the teaching and preaching of God's Word. We seek to cultivate a heart and desire to listen to God, honor Him, and serve the Lord with our lives because of a love for Him.

Our Mission

God has given us a clear commission – to reach every creature with the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our special mission for those involved with S.M.I.T.E. is to evangelize every child. In the last ministry year, our students and workers were able to reach over 12,000 children with this precious message! We hope you decide to take part in this amazing week!

Mark 16:15

“Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
