Youth Mission Week, Summer 2019
In the Book of Acts, Jesus instructs his disciples (based out of Jerusalem) to be his "witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” A common way to interpret this passage is that Christians are to become a witness in the local community, regionally, and to the ends of the Earth. The Youth Mission Week will focus on the Jerusalem, or home, aspect of this command. A church in Oneonta, NY is graciously hosting our group and helping us to identify meaningful service projects in the area to accompany our commitment to provide training in building gospel-focused relationships and building a deeper personal relationship with Christ.
In addition to service and training, our group will also enjoy a great time of team building through a kayaking trip, hiking, and games (both in the gym and of course board games).
Purpose of Youth Mission Week, 2019:
- To promote a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and equip students to more effectively and boldly share their faith with their family and friends.
- Grow in knowledge and depth of relationship with Christ.
- Learn to create intentional relationships with people you are in regular contact with that allow for the gospel to be shared.
- Build community through serving others in partnership with a local church, attending team building activities, and through group bible study and prayer time.
