This is a mentoring program for at risk youth, that pairs youth with adult mentors in order to assist the youth in becoming productive citizens. Mentors meet with youth one on one guiding them in the right direction
The Youth Serve program focuses primarily on youth who are of middle and early high school age. This age group is particularly problematic and a perfect time for mentoring to be effective. At-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. Youth Serve is here to restore that hope.
Jesus was a people seeker. He did not hang around synagogues waiting for people to come to him. He went outside religious places and reached out to people.
You could often find Jesus at a party, having dinner at someone’s home, or engaging in conversations with strangers on the street. He went where the people who needed him would be .
SERVING– MATT 20:26-30
Jesus actions backed up what he said. People accepted his message that God was real and cared for them because He showed it by what he did. So do we.
SHARING– JOHN 4:29, MRK 5:19
Jesus came to declare to good news of God’s kingdom, and he taught all those who were willing to listen. Those who met him shared his story with others as witnesses….and so do we.
SUPPORTING– MATT 9:12-15
Jesus knew some people needed extra help, even when they messed up or were going though hard times. Whether it was a sinful women , a despised tax collector, or his own close friends who had abandoned him, Jesus stuck by people without giving up on them or refusing to help them.
