This Ministry uses innovative methods to insure that our youth become valued resources to their families, churches, and communities. Our goal is to teach them how to become self-sustaining productive citizens, without compromising Godly principles.
This Youth & Young Adult Ministry has designed, developed, and implemented programs and ministry opportunities that accommodate the spiritual needs of our youth. Youth Services, workshops, and pertinent activities are tools that are used to effectively teach our youth how to apply the Word of God in their lives.
