First Priority is a youth organization that supports student-initiated, student-led Christian clubs on middle school and high school campuses.

First Priority of America, Inc. supports local city FP movements in cities across the US.

First Priority Strategy was founded by Christian author and speaker Benny Proffitt and 11 other youth Pastors in the Irving, TX area. The first city to take this strategy and follow it through to maturity is found in Birmingham, AL (approx 20 years old).

The vision of First Priority is to see the Hope of Christ in every student in America. The way they implement the vision is to unite the body of Christ with a plan of action to influence the schools with the gospel. The distinction on First Priority is to empower the 325,000 Evangelical churches to reach the students in 69,000 Middle and High schools. This plan makes First Priority a local church strategy rather than a para-church ministry.
