EBK (Eastland Baptist Kids)

EBK (Eastland Baptist Kids) is a ministry of Eastland Baptist Church with the purpose of sharing Christ with children through God’s Word. Our Children’s Pastor Jack Bradford oversees this important ministry, he is assisted by his wife Rachael and their three children.

EBK has three different areas of particular ministry.

Sunday School

Our Sunday school classes are separated by age and gender. The classes are separated as follows:

1st & 2nd grade boys; 1st & 2nd grade girls; 3rd, 4th & 5th grade boys and 3rd, 4th & 5th grade girls. Sunday school provides a small group setting where children can ask questions and interact with others in the class.

Children’s Church

Children’s Church worship hour takes place during our Sunday worship service. Our lessons and music are geared toward children in 1st through 5th grade. Games and activities reinforce the scriptural truths making Children’s Church an overall good spiritual time for the kids.”

Fishermen’s Club

Jesus said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Join us on Wednesday nights for fun in Christ. Brief lesson focused on following Jesus, games and crafts focusing on fun. Fishermen’s Club is directed to share with kids that Christians can have fun in the name of Christ! Our Fishermen’s Club runs in correspondence with the school calendar.

Bible Camp

Each summer we take a group of students to Bible camp. For over 20 years we have attended Trinity youth Camp in Melrose, Florida. This time provides an opportunity for kids to “get away” from the world and get alone with God through Bible teaching and the fun that goes along with camp. Bible camp is for students going into the second grade though the sixth grade.


The ELITE of Eastland Baptist Church are composed of those who are 50 years of age and older. ELITE stands for Encouraging Laborers Involved Till Eternity. Monthly events keep this group active and close. Aging does not have to mean idle, and Eastland Baptist Church not only has a heart for the mature among us but also realize that they have a lot to offer in the way of service to the Lord.

Ladies Bible Study

Many years ago the Ladies’ Bible Study Group started with six ladies meeting every other Thursday morning to study the Word of God together, since them the study had been going on for 11 years. It has expanded to a group of 20+ ladies who meet for a study in the morning and an additional evening study with about 12 ladies in attendance.

Over the years the group has worked through such studies as ‘Having a Mary heart in a Martha World’, ‘Having a Mary Spirit,’‘Lord, I want to know You,’ and ‘Too Busy Not to Pray’.

One of our goals is “To grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Another goal is to promote fellowship, form solid friendships and bear each other’s burdens.

The study meets every other Thursday in the Corner Café of the church. The morning study meets from 10:10 to 11:30 and the evening study is from 6:30 -8:00. All are welcome to attend.”

If you need additional information, please contact Debbie Ohman @ 309-361-2740.

We will be starting “Slaying the Giants in Your Life” by David Jeremiah
This new study will begin December 5th.


Having a heart that is burdened for world evangelism is what God desires of every believer. The Bible states that because God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. Developing lives that invest in the world and taking the Gospel to the world is a vital part of the ministry at Eastland Baptist Church. From the annual Faith Promise Missions Conference to the short-term mission trips by church members to help on mission fields, we are making investments that are impacting lives in world evangelism. Our desire is to support quality missionaries but also to send out those from our ministry who have been impacted and called by God.

Sunday School

Our Sunday school is designed for teaching the Word of God, fellowship among God’s people, evangelizing the lost by personal relationships and discipleship rooted in the Bible. Our Sunday school is for all ages, from the nursery to the ELITE (our mature citizens) with a variety of classes.


The Youth Ministry of Eastland Baptist Church is a very important part of our church. Teenagers have their character and beliefs are challenged from all sides and they need to know what they believe and why. The goal of our youth ministry is to help our young people develop their own set of core beliefs about God, the Bible, and the Christian life. We want our teens to recognize the fact that they belong to God and to have a desire to worship and serve Him.


During the Sunday School hour, we meet in the Youth Center building located behind “C” building. This is the time when we go through God’s Word and discover how it can be applied to our young people’s lives. Wednesday Worship is an atmosphere of friendship and fun, with emphasis on the truths of God’s Word.”


We realize our teens are a vital part of the church ministry, today!! We want our teens to be “doers of the Word, and not hearers only” as James 1:22 instructs us. Teenagers are encouraged to participate in various aspects of ministry such as teen choir, visitation, helping with Jr. Church, sound ministry, and music.


The first Sunday night of each month we have Sunday Night After Church (S.N.A.C.). This is a time to just hang out, eat some food, and play carpetball or pool while watching a movie. In the winter, we have our annual Ski Trip to Winterplace, WV and we go to Trinity Youth Camp in Keystone Heights, FL during the summer. During the year, we also do various activities such as putt-putt, bowling, scavenger hunts, rock climbing, the various theme parks in Orlando and more.


Eastland uses a personal visitation program to follow-up on each individual & family who has recently attended a church service. This personal touch enables our members to invest into their lives by familiarizing them with our people, programs and our philosophy of ministry. Not only do we want to genuinely befriend them but we also take the time to share the gospel with those whose hearts the Lord is drawing, encourage those who have hurting hearts and provide Biblical direction to those who have ventured off the path. If folks are searching for a church, we take the time to answer their questions along with getting to know them and helping them find the right church for them or their family.


The ladies of Eastland Baptist Church have a variety of activities throughout the year. All ladies are encouraged to be a part of our bi-weekly bible study and monthly fellowships. You will find our gatherings to be full of friendly ladies, lots of laughter, much fun, and glorifying to our Lord Jesus Christ. Whether you prefer to come and relax, or use your talents in our fellowships, all are welcomed.

Children’s Home

Central Florida Children’s Home, Incorporated was founded in 1973 by Eastland Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Clyde F. Green. Our organization operates under its own Charter and Board of Directors, and is solely supported by its donors and volunteers—we do not receive State or Federal funding.

Our mission is to care for children whose parents either cannot or will not provide for them due to certain circumstances in the child’s life, and/or difficulties in the parents’ lives.”

As a faith-based community, we provide a Christian atmosphere and a real ‘home’ atmosphere by assigning children a “mom and dad”. This creates a secure environment where the children can experience unconditional love and nurturing. An emphasis is placed on academic achievement to insure that the children are well prepared for higher academic studies or vocational training for the job market. Our children are assigned chores and responsibilities to help develop character and discipline, skills that they can carry with them throughout their lives.

Eastland Christian School

Providing a quality education is important to the administration and faculty of Eastland Christian School. As a college preparatory school, Eastland stresses academic excellence. Whether preparing students for higher education, vocational training or the job market, Eastland Christian School is committed to preparing students for the future. Eastland Christian School is accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and School.
