The expectations of a youth ministry are as different as the people connected with it. While some may simply want a place to socialize, entertain, or fix their students, we believe God has different and deeper expectations.
We believe that each student has been placed on Earth and in our church for a specific purpose. As a result, we feel it is our responsibility to help realize and achieve that purpose. That means our first priority is to help everyone know and BECOME like Jesus Christ. We want to help students understand how we all fit in God’s kingdom and are UNIFIED because of the shared belief in Jesus. We seek to help students discover their gifts, passions, and abilities so that they can be INVOLVED in serving others for Jesus. We strive to teach students to LOVE God alone in worship of Jesus. Finally, we want to encourage students to TELL the story of Jesus. A story of hope, a story of how God loved you so much that He became a man and died to pay the punishment for the wrong thing we've done. If we turn away from those things and choose to live life following Jesus, we get a full life now and eternal life with God. If we can accomplish those things we believe you will leave our ministry BUILT to handle life as God intended.
As a result, all of our weekly programs, our monthly activities, and our yearly events are trying to accomplish one or more of these goals. We plan with your spiritual growth in mind, and we have a lot of fun along the way!
In Christ Alone,
B- Become like Christ
