q       To offer youth a safe environment filled with positive programs, righteous relationships, and powerful Bible study, worship, and prayer.

 

Chief Ministry Goal & Evaluation Statement

 

All of our planning will be evaluated by the following ministry goal:

 

"That our youth may Know, Stow, Grow, Glow
and Sow their faith in Jesus Christ."

 

KNOW:  Recognize their sinfulness and need for a Savior, and KNOW  God's plan for salvation through Jesus Christ  [Head Knowledge]. 

q       Through this activity, will our youth come to understand Biblical truths about Jesus?

 

STOW: Affirm the love of God personally in their lives and STOW  His forgiveness in their hearts [Heart Knowledge].

q       Through this activity, will our youth be drawn to a personal relationship with Jesus?

 

GROW: Strengthen and GROW  in their relationship with Jesus Christ and other Christians through an active "Daily Walk" of prayer, Bible study and worship...

q       Through this activity, will our youth grow in their relationship with other Christians and in their daily walk with Jesus?

 

GLOW: ...So that their daily discernment in life situations may reflect their Spiritual gifts and the GLOW of Jesus in them.

q       Through this activity, will our youth be given an opportunity make choices, use their Spiritual gifts and to reflect Jesus?

 

SOW:  As a response to God's love, that they would SOW  the seeds of the Gospel intentionally to others through their living testimonies of faith.

q       Through this activity, will our youth be taught how or be given the opportunity to share their faith in Jesus?
