This is our Father’s world. It is not our own. As we seek to live and serve HIM, we must do so HIS way. It is not about it. It is about HIM. Far too often in ministry we make it about us. This cannot and must not be the case in the FVYM Teen Ministry. Thus, we set forth the following statement as our guide in this endeavor of love.
“The Faith Village Teen Ministry exists to REACH non-believing teens (in house and outside), to CONNECT them with other Christians, to help them GROW in their faith, and to challenge the growing to DISCOVER their ministry and HONOR God with their life.”
Breakdown of the Purpose Statement – –
REACH is how we learn to EVANGELIZE – “Go and make disciples” –
CONNECT is how we bring others into the FELLOWSHIP – “Baptizing them” –
GROW is how we learn to DISCIPLE – “Teaching them to obey” –
DISCOVER is how we learn to MINISTER – “Love your neighbor”
HONOR is how we learn to WORSHIP – “Love the Lord your God”
