Our Youth Ministry Mission Statement
The youth ministry of Grace Bible Church exists to complement parental responsibility in nurturing in our young people a spirit-filled life of spiritual conversation, biblical thinking and godly living. Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth [spiritual conversation], but you shall meditate in it day and night [biblical thinking], that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it [godly living]. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Our Youth Ministry Philosophy
Our youth ministry philosophy can be summarized with four descriptions:
God-centered and thus Word-centered, believing that God’s Word contains every answer for the needs of our teens.
Family-focused, believing that children are the God-given heritage and responsibility of the parents.
Participation-based, believing that whole-hearted involvement is essential to combat apathy, hypocrisy and an entertainment-based youth program.
Multi-purposed, believing that each of these events can stand alone or blend with others, but that each is designed to facilitate our mission statements for the church and youth ministry.
