Leaders: Pastor Mickey Roth and John Rallo
We are building the next generation of leaders of the church and that starts with a firm foundation of faith in the love that God has for us.
We encourage our youth to use the gifts and talents that God has given to them. Developing and nurturing within them with a firm foundation in faith and the knowledge of God’s love for them (Eph 3:16-19). We assist them in developing their personal relationship with the Lord much as Eli assisted Samual in 1 Sam 3:8-10. Knowing that their beliefs are challenged daily, we strive to provide them with the tools to know what they believe and why they believe. So, that they are rooted and grounded in truth and can not be easily taken captive by worldly principles (Col 2:7-8 NASB).
Developing a personal, intimate, growing relationship with God is critical to their remaining active members in the whole body of Christ as they mature. We strive to provide them with the skill sets to pray effectively, study the Bible with accuracy, grow their faith, and become continual “doers of the word”.
We provide training in classes designed specifically for the youth. We also include them regularly in the main service so they learn to function and flow as an important member of the church body. They also have opportunities to assist with the children’s ministry as teaching assistants, which helps them develop their leadership skills.
