Deuteronomy 6:6-8 (NKJV)
6 "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
At New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry we have made a commitment to invest in the next generation, our youth. Our biblically based commitment follows the directive given to us in Deuteronomy 6:6-8. Knowing that our youth are body, soul and spirit, we have made a commitment to instill in them Biblically based principles that will equip them for the culture they live in. This commitment is not only to our youth but to their parents/guardians, the leadership of New Wine Fellowship Church Inc. and ultimately to our Savior Jesus Christ.
At New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry, we believe in the importance of reaching the next generation for Jesus Christ. Passing the baton of faith to our children and youth is both a great responsibility and an incredible privilege. We believe that we are called to stand in the gap for our youth, instilling in them the ability to be Biblically based critical thinkers and Evangelists who through pursuit of His Presence are equipped to reach their own generation and change the atmosphere thus changing the world and culture around them.
It is the vision of New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry to help families develop a spiritual foundation that equips each member to live out a Christ like lifestyle. Our vision for the Youth Ministry is to develop a community of young people who are foundationally sound (Hebrews 6:1-2), are experiencing Jesus Christ and the joy of a relationship with God, who recognize God's purpose for their lives, and who seek to know God more. We desire our youth to make Him known to others while simultaneously building healthy friendships and experiencing a meaningful and Godly fellowship with the Body. In general, we desire New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry to enhance what parents are doing at home, while continuing to build on the foundation laid by parents. In maintaining this vision we will provide regular evaluations of New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry to ensure that our primary vision is achieved.
The purpose of New Wine Fellowship Youth Ministry is to:
