Jesus, in His ministry here on earth, called young people to be His disciples. What amazes me most is that He called and mentored them despite their age, life situation, and their varying temperaments. In the book of Acts, even the religious leaders witnessed the life-changing impact that Jesus Christ created in these people.
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13)
Even in the Old Testament, Daniel and his three friends are noteworthy examples of young people who lived out uncompromising faith and that of fervent prayer.
“When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.” (Daniel 6:10)
Could you just imagine if our youths shared the same passion and commitment for the Lord? What an exciting vision, isn’t it?
Two months ago, our core team composed of nine young men and women began to be on our knees to seek God’s direction for our youth ministry here in GCF South Metro. Over time, He impressed in our hearts the need to be more intentional about building relationships with their peers and their families, to go deeper into God’s Word, to make prayer a priority, and be more focused in making Christ-committed disciples. Now, the big challenge left for us is, how are we going to start?
Thus, we are enjoining all the high school and college students to attend our regular SATURDAY YOUTH FELLOWSHIP! We will launch this on August 18, 4:00–5:30 P.M, at the YDT Center. In these gatherings, we will study the Word, worship God together, and experience the joy of being in the company of fellow young people! Of course, everyone’s welcome to join!
Please feel free to approach our team at the lobby outside the worship hall, and sign-up! For more information, you can get in touch with me at 0917.805.0531 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
