Since its inception 13 years ago, the Kingdom Seekers Youth Group of First Baptist Church of Park Forest have praised God through song and dance. The Kingdom Seekers range in age from 3 years old to young adult. This youth group provides music for Sunday worship services every third Sunday and provides leadership and music for worship services every 5th Sunday. The Kingdom Seekers have been invited to sing at several churches throughout the area and have participated in numerous musical concerts. The youth are involved in various activities within the church, such as, praise dancing and performing Easter and Christmas presentations. Kingdom Seekers are also involved with community outreach through the annual giving tree in which hats, scarfs, gloves and toiletries are donated to local shelters.
Jasmyne Brown Roberts served as the Kingdom Seekers musical director, musician, choreographer and counselor from 2003 until 2011. Lisa Lewis assumed the role of youth coordinator in 2011. The group is currently under the directorship of Melissa Richards. Other directors within the group are Francesca Robinson, Joycelyn McCall and Brianna Mays.
Through the grace of God, the Kingdom Seekers continue to thrive as they continue to worship and praise God in their own unique way.
