Evangel Youth Ministry exists to encourage and aid Junior and Senior High students in their pursuit to glorify and enjoy God. We are committed to raising up a new generation of Christian leaders who are prepared to live for the Gospel. It is our aim to encourage the application of the Gospel to all areas of students’ lives and to equip them to become disciple-makers. We use worship and Bible studies, discipleship groups, mission opportunities, and fellowship activities as we seek to accomplish those goals. All of this is done with the passionate desire to raise up teenagers who reflect the image of Christ in the world to the praise of God.
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16-17)
The Word of God is central to all that we do at Evangel Youth Ministry. Every Wednesday night from 6:15-7:15 pm, the Junior and Senior High meet for worship and Bible study at the ROC (our youth room located inside the Evangel Gym Facility). This is followed by a small group time from 7:15-7:30 pm. On Sunday nights from 5:00-6:00 pm we will again meet at the ROC for discipleship groups for those students interested in going deeper in their study of the Bible. These groups vary in what they study, but we will have a group just right for you.
In Acts we read that the early church continued steadfastly not only in the apostle’s doctrine, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers, but in fellowship as well. Therefore, we see that fellowship and a sense of community was an essential ingredient to the vitality and growth of the early church.
Although Evangel Youth Ministry is not an “activity driven” youth group, we do believe that it is crucial to provide regular opportunities for students to interact with each other and with their church family. Each month we offer fun activities for youth to participate in such as Christian concerts, scavenger hunts, Six Flags, and other fun trips. Parents are always encourages to come along with their youth whenever possible. These outings offer parents quality time not only with their own children, but also with other children in the church.
