At Gospel Life Church, we recognize the importance of ministry to the middle school and high school aged. The ministry to this age group focuses on providing a deeper understanding the foundations of the Christian faith and how to practically live the Christian life. In addition, our adult youth workers seek to establish purposeful relationships with our teens for discipleship in their Christian walks. Our youth workers also are available as resources to parents of our youth. All our volunteers who work with these ages have been screened to ensure a safe environment. Many weekly ministries and ministry events are also available for this group.
"Today's teens are bombarded by a culture that undermines Christian values and Biblical Truth. Discerning how to follow Christ as a teenager amidst many pressures and temptations is difficult. As youth leaders, we can help by teaching teens Scripture and helping them apply this truth to their lives. We strive to build edifying relationships between the youth worker and the teen as well as amongst the group. Above all, we are collectively seeking to glorify God in we do. (I Cor. 10:31)"
Youth Night is available for teenagers in grades 7-12. Our approach to youth ministry is more than just providing a fun outlet; it is about teaching our teens to live a God-centered life and equipping them for ministry. We want our times together to be fun, but that is not our top priority. Rather, our focus is to provide relevant, Biblical teaching to our teens in order to initiate and/or strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, we recognize that our ministry is an extension of Biblical teaching within the home and that we should supplement, not replace it.
