WHAT'S OUR PURPOSE?
Raise the next generation into Christlikeness.
The youth group will be mirroring the Sunday sermons, but with a focus of Jesus, and how He shows us who God is.
Join us for dinner at 6pm followed by classes for all ages at 6:30pm.
An Intro from Next Gen pastor, Joe
I am originally from Colorado Springs Colorado. When I was a Sophomore in High School I became a Christian and started serving in my church soon after. In my Junior year, I felt a call to ministry and began leading small groups in my youth group. This experience and some other opportunities I had for serving and teaching opened my eyes and confirmed the call that I was supposed to be doing vocational ministry. After High School, I moved to Joplin Missouri to attend Ozark Christian College, where I received a Bachelors of Theology, specializing in Old Testament. It was near the end of this time that I met my fiancé Hope, whom I will marry this March. I moved to Johnson City to attend Emmanuel Christian Seminary to continue preparing for ministry.
As we move forward together I would like to ask you to pray about and consider serving with the youth group. An old proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, I believe it takes the whole Church to raise them up in the Lord.
