The youth ministry seeks to inspire young people to walk with Jesus Christ. These are mainly aged 13 to 35. The young people are empowered to live as Disciples of Christ. The Church through this ministry seeks to support the young people to connect and belong to the community. This is done through identifying their gifts and put them to use. Secondly, the Church aims to speak their language, comfort, create an environment of fun, empower leaders and build meaningful relationships.
The Youth ministry exists to win the youth to Jesus, celebrate life with other believers, develop Christ- like qualities, equip youth for ministry and exalt God for who He is.
This ministry is divided into different groups with different activities that enrich the young people. These include;
- ‘Amazing Love’, who fellowship every Tuesday at 7:30 pm, currently at the Vicarage.
- Bible Study Fellowship every Tuesday at 5pm at Church.
- Youth Fellowship every Friday at 5pm at Church.
- SWAP (Single With A Purpose). They meet every first Monday of the Month at 5pm.
The main activities under this ministry include prayer meetings, bible study, life skills, fun and games, sports, sharing a snack, debates, visiting fellowship members’ homes, church visits, School’s ministry, participating on a Youth Sunday, Soul to Soul (youth conference), Integrated Campers Camp (ICC) to mention but a few.
The above activities focus on reaching the youth where they are, evangelize them, draw them for fellowship and disciple them for ministry leadership. The youth ministry has a structured leadership that help govern the ministry. This leadership is headed by the Youth Chairman.
Eccl 12:1 “remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, ‘I find no pleasure in them’ “. Being a young Christian today is incredible and can be fun. However, with this fast dynamic world, young people experience challenges ranging from temptations, peer influence, identity crisis etc. It’s therefore important that every young person is part of a youth group/ ministry that will help him/ her to overcome life’s challenges and be the light in this dark world.
Please do join us, lets have fun in the Lord!
