Our Vision

small logo

God is a big God, bigger than we could ever imagine, yet so many times we tend to place Him in a box or place demands on Him as if He were some kind of cosmic Santa Claus.  He is God and He alone is God.  There is no limit to what God will accomplish in our youth group to bring Himself glory.  Our vision is big, but our God is bigger.

To develop parents who are involved in their students spiritual lives:  Many times parents don’t understand their call to be the spiritual leaders in the lives of their children.  We want to teach parents how to fulfill their God given role in their homes.  You can not be an effective Christian just getting fed on Sunday’s and Wednesday’s it must happen each and every day.

  • To have every student who is a part of the body of Christ using their gifts in a ministry inside of the church: Everyone who is saved has a spiritual gift and belongs to the Body of Christ.  We need to let these students have an opportunity to develop and minister with their gifts, no matter what their age, in the appropriate environment.
  • To have students who are accountable to each other:  Our students are tempted on a daily basis by peer pressure and many times parents do not understand what they are actually going through.  Students of the same age who are encouraging, loving, and helping them through their daily walk can make a big difference when it comes to making the right choices.
  • For our students to feel like youth group is a place they will be unconditionally loved and are able to speak freely about events that are effecting their lives:  Many times people are reserved to share when the time is appropriate and because of that they are stunted in their Christian growth.  We want to make an environment where students feel free to share and seek Godly advice in their walk with the Lord.
  • Our students will be our #1 resource for reaching new unchurched students:  We are all called to reach the world for Christ, but so many times we are scared to reach out to others who are dying.  We need to raise up a fearless generation who will share the Gospel no matter the cost.
  • To be an asset to parents who are bring up their children Biblically: We want to always reinforce and never contradict what a student is instructed to do by their parents.  We must be careful not to share our opinions as Biblical Truth.
  • Train leaders:  College aged students are falling away from the church faster than any other age group, imagine if they are trained to lead and placed to serve and make a difference for Christ in this world.
