We are excited to have you visit our web page and to have the opportunity to tell you about this truly wonderful and blessed ministry given to us by God. Midtown is a collaborative effort of the churches in the York Baptist Association in Rock Hill, SC. to reach inner city children for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Every Thursday evening during the school year at 6:30 pm the Kids for Jesus bus ministry delivers between 35 and 50 inner city children to the Oakdale Baptist Church in Rock Hill. Members from 10 participating churches are there ready to greet them, worship with them, feed them a hot meal and teach them the truths of God's word. Many of those children will never get to go to church except when they come to Midtown. Many will never know the love that God has for them, except they come to Midtown. We are the only church they know.

We would like to invite you to visit us and see whether God is calling you to become involved as a volunteer. We always need Spirit driven teachers, assistants, food servers, help with set up and clean up, and bus monitors. For more information, call Pastor Dave Roth at 803-984-4337 or email

I prayed before I went and my first Thursday at the mission was an eye opening event. The only people I knew there was Marsha and Pat Martin but when I walked in I felt God’s love.  I sat on the floor with some of the kids during our song segment and put my arms around some of them. They in turn loved me back.  Well needless to say I was hooked.  I felt God’s great love, His presence and the gift He gave me of loving His children.  Wow, it was incredible.
