Young People's Ministry

Mission

Connecting Young People To God, The Church, And The World

Mission of The Young People’s Ministry (YPM) is to “Motivate, Equip, & Resource” youth, young adults, youth & young adult leadership, and local churches.

Project Transformation

Our mission is to engage young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry, support children in holistic development, and connect churches with communities.

Shaped By God’s Mission

A special ‘Mission Team Leader Training’ focused on mission as an experience that informs our lives as Christians. Specifically for anyone who works with youth/young adults.

Two trainings will be held Fall 2018 at Canyon Camp (Hinton, OK) and Camp Egan(Tahlequah, OK)

 

Christ At The Checkpoint

“We are a community of evangelical Christians who believe that following Jesus with integrity means that our lives are formed by our love for God, the teaching of the Bible and a fearless life of discipleship in the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict…We wish to find Jesus at the center of everything we do and to make his life our life. Which means finding courageous love for Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews alike.”

DiRECtion

Baltimore/DC Mission Trip: Spring Break (every other year beginning in Fall 2018.)

‘Though violence against minority communities are being highlighted at a higher rate due to the advent of social media, many are becoming aware of distant racism while being blind to the racism in their own lives, families, neighborhoods, and churches.  DiRECtion will be an avenue for the sharing of personal stories, gaining a more holistic historical understanding of racism in America, and an intersectional approach to conversations and transformations led by faith-based advocacy.’
