I believe it is vital that family ministry exists to reach nonbelieving youth. There are youth that live in every neighborhood who need Jesus in their lives.
Jesus said in Matthew 9:12-13: “It is not the healthy who need a doctor but the sick…For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
I believe that our reason for existence is to worship our God. Everything done in family/student ministry is done because we love God and desire to honor and worship him with our lifestyle. All believers should maintain a heart for knowing and pleasing God. (1 Timothy 4:16, II Timothy 2:4)
In Romans 12:1 we are told, “Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship.”
I believe that our journey is better when we connect with other Christians. We were never intended to live in isolation but with other believers in the body of Christ. As well as maintaining a heart for relationships with not just other youth but the parents, youth leaders, and church staff. (Philippians 2:19-20, Ephesians 4:11-12, Hebrews 13-17).
Ephesians 2:19 states, “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.”
I believe that it is paramount to help youth grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. Youth hunger for Biblical truth. Their inquisitiveness requires a person who is eager to share with them in a relational and dynamic way the soundness of Biblical Doctrine.
Hebrews 6:1 states, “Let us leave the elementary teachings of Christ and go on to maturity.”
I believe that we need to challenge youth to discover their ministry. I believe that youth have God-given gifts that do not come with an age limitation. Youth can and should be full members of the Church body.
Jesus said in Luke 9:23, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”
