Starting with a FIRM FOUNDATION
When a builder starts to build a house, he starts with a solid foundation. So it is with our lives. Without Jesus Christ as the solid foundation for our lives, we will have nothing on which to stand and will crumble. Christ needs to be the center of all we are and do.
So, it is with Youth Ministry as well. We base our foundation on the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 which says to "Go and Make disciples" and also on the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-40 which says to "love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself."
THE GREAT COMMISSION:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
THE GREAT COMMANDMENT:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.
Youth Ministry @ St John focuses on:
