Philosophy of Ministry: The Bible clearly teaches that parents have the responsibility to instruct their children in the ways of our Lord (Deut. 6:6-9). Therefore, we see youth ministry as an aid to what should already be taking place at home. Every church with a youth ministry must protect itself from the danger of allowing it to supplant the responsibility of parents. Youth ministry must always equip and support the spiritual duties of the family.
While many homes are blessed with Christian parents who lead their children in godliness, there are many homes where that is not the case. Our youth ministry seeks to provide leadership, encouragement and discipleship to young adults of a variety of backgrounds. We have a wonderful culture of discipleship in which older saints greatly encourage our youth.
Since our primary concern is spiritual growth, the teaching of the Word is central. Every Monday at 7 p.m., the young people meet for a time of Bible study and recreation at the church. Aside from this, the youth group enjoys many other activities like summer trips to Wayumi, organizing Backyard VBS, Christmas Caroling, etc. We praise the Lord for the work of the Spirit evident in this ministry.
