What is your mission statement for youth ministry?

We know there are lots of great activities that provide middle and senior high youth with opportunities to get connected! Our primary goal for our youth ministry programs is to invite students to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Our goal as Christian Education volunteers is to engage and emphasize the following:

  • We help young adults discover God through prayer, Bible reading, worship, giving, selfless serving, and spiritual friendships
  • We help young adults learn that God has a plan and purpose for their lives– God cares about OUR story
  • We equip our students to grow in their faith journey by aiming to create a space where tough, real questions can be asked and wrestled with as a community
  • We will emphasize that discipleship includes faith (personal and communal spiritual growth) and deeds (acts of giving and service)

We recognize that these goals cannot be fulfilled solely by the efforts of the church. We affirm that one of our greatest duties is to help parents become leaders in this development process. It takes several committed adults to mentor and support each young person in our program.  We strive to build a youth ministry that creates a network of dedicated leaders who embrace this vision.
