Jumpstart Youth Ministry - November Resources

Posted: November 17 2020 at 02:29 PM

Last month, the discipleship task force introduced the first pair of videos for a six month series about growing and strengthening discipleship ministries with a particular focus on youth. Our theme for October was “Just Show Up!” as the first step in working, leading, and learning from young people. This month, our theme is “THE CHURCH OF TODAY”—how our youth are already shaping and reshaping it, and how we can listen and learn from them. Tune in to Pastor Seamus’ video on this theme, and then continue with Deacon Sharon’s resource video!

Remember, our youth and young people are not simply “the church of the future”; they are indeed the Church of Today, and together we can build up the Body of Christ for the transformation of the world
