What is the Purpose of Youth Ministry?
- Youth ministry is vital to helping teens integrate into the larger, intergenerational community of the church.
- Youth ministry resists the status quo, helping the church stay relevant.
- Youth ministry focuses on inviting those who are not already part of the church into the deeper narrative of God’s plan.
- Youth ministry reminds the church that teens are not marginalized members of the body, but co-creators and conspirators in the divine work of the church.
- Youth ministry helps the church focus on the way of Jesus, which goes beyond traditional teaching and work.
Youth Events Provide:
- a safe, loving, and wholesome atmosphere for young people
- a program which helps young people become formed in their faith
- a variety of worship experiences that help young people connect with God and one another
- a means for young people to develop their individual prayer and spiritual life
- assistance for young people in developing values, ethical norms, and a sense of Christian community
- interaction with adults who authentically model the Christian faith
- activities (games, sports, crafts, etc.) which involve fun and the building of sense of worth
