Our desire is to reach every student for Christ, that every one we meet will have an opportunity to know Jesus for themselves. We strive to reach them through as many means as possible: by inviting friends, playing games, having hangout days, and sharing the Gospel of a God who loves them and died for their sin.
To raise students up to have Christ at the center of their lives, they are encouraged to develop spiritual habits that help them grow their relationship with Jesus from now into adulthood. They learn their identity in Christ and that He has a special God-given destiny for them to fulfill. We accomplish this through teaching, fine arts, small groups, camps, and conventions.
By the time a student leaves the youth ministry we want them to be grounded in truth and empowered by the Spirit to be world changers, that no matter where they go and what their profession is they will continue to be involved with the body of Christ and advance the kingdom of God for His glory.
During our normal youth service we always make time to get to know each other and just hangout. Once we begin we will usually have time to continue to interact by playing a game or working together to solve a problem. You can always expect us to have a time of worship and a biblical message from Pastor Zach.
Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of the AG Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts and to learn about their God-given abilities and talents.
We, along with leaders and family members, encourage students to develop their gifts and then use them in their schools, churches, and communities. Fine Arts Festivals enable students to experience a time of learning through evaluations, workshops, and interaction with other students.
The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the "essential transportation and creative communication" equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, print, audio, and digital equipment, our missionaries can help make Jesus known.
Speed the Light is the student-initiated, volunteer, charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across the nation and in over 180 countries around the world.
