We are a bright future.
Under the overall mission of Tiffany Fellowship Church, our youth group has its own youth-led worship team and small groups. On Wednesday nights, we start out with a meal. Then our service starts with a game, worship, a message, and concludes with prayer. We also attend camp and host special events throughout the year. Our youth ministry focuses on leading kids from 6th to 12th grade to a personal encounter with Jesus.
Nearly 70% of college-age students disconnect from the church. We believe one of the most significant factors to this drop off is not experiencing Jesus for themselves. Every facet of our ministry is designed to help youth take ownership of their faith and their purpose as Christ-followers. We encourage our kids to participate in ministry. Not just within youth group, but on Sunday mornings and through missions. In fact, they have exceeded their corporate missions’ giving goals three years in a row. #impressive
Being a teenager isn’t easy. We take precautions to make sure our kids feel safe. It’s important that they are able to talk about the real issues they face and can work through them in a healthy way. In order to create space for this, we have special small group breakouts. That way girls can work with female youth sponsors and boys with male sponsors. Because we have a wide age range, we also break up by age to help keep the conversation relatable.
On Sunday morning, the greatest sight to see is our teenagers, sitting in the front row together, ready to receive the Word of God. If we ever get overwhelmed by the future we remember, first that God is who He is. But second, they are the future. He has called them and equipped them, we’re simply here to help them on their mission.
Patrick’s ministry tenure and military service have all been preparing him for this – these days and our young people.
