Scripture Foundation "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children..." Deuteronomy 6:6-7b
Mission/Purpose To train up youth to go forth in the world as leaders thoroughly established in the Word of God. The youth will be exposed to and taught the Word of God beginning at the earliest age possible and that foundation is built upon throughout each age level, with the same emphasis as the adults. Areas of emphasis include: Worship, Prayer, Teaching/Training, Evangelism, and Fellowship.
Ministry Description The Youth Ministry of New Jerusalem is part of Pastor Perkins vision of "equipping the saints." New Jerusalem Youth Ministry is designed to meet the needs of the youth to worship God at his or her age level of understanding, which prepares the youth for more meaningful participation in worship services. It is the primary goal and objective of the youth ministry to teach the youth the Word of God and their authority as a Believer. We currently have three sessions a month. Every second and fourth Friday night and every fourth Sunday. All services are for worship and training designed to spiritually prepare each age group to overcome the challenges they will face in life and to become life-long worshippers. The Word of God says in Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it." New Jerusalem Youth Ministry services on Sunday and Fridays are an extension of that training. We invite all youth and adults to come out and be a part of this exciting ministry.
