• To foster the total personal spiritual growth of each young person.

 

Few Components of Youth Ministry

 

Advocacy

 

As a Church, we need to stand up for youth, especially those who are voiceless and powerless in our society. We are challenged to use our resources to build a society more respectful of the life, dignity and rights of adolescents and their families.

 

Community Life

 

No one in the church can stand alone, each person is called to connect her or his life to the Body of Christ. Community life works to build an environment of love, support and mutual encouragement. It is the role of youth ministry to call young people to their rightful place as full members of the community.

 

Evangelization

 

“Evangelization means bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ into every human situation.” Young people must be invited to live as disciples.

 

Justice and Peace

 

Our faith calls us to work for justice: to serve those in need; to pursue peace; and defend life, dignity, and rights of all our sisters and brothers. This is the call of Jesus, the urging of the Spirit, the challenge of the prophets, and the living tradition of the Church.

 

Leadership Development

 

Every person is graced with certain gifts and talents. It is the role of youth ministry to help young people gain the skills to make the most of their God-given gifts for the service of the human community.

 

The youth group at the Dubai Church of Christ Church of Christ strives daily to allow God to mold us into selfless Christians. We look only to God, for He gives us the strength and ability to serve Him and others. It is the goal of our youth ministry to take students to a higher level of faith, beyond the issues of teen life, and plant ourselves beside the cross of Christ daily.

 

Youth Activities

 

Each Wednesday night our youth gather to lift up our hearts to God. This worship service is conducted by our young men and is one of our strongest activities. We are able to let go of the problems in youth and focus on praising God. This activity is special because it allows us to reach out to many teenagers that are looking to praise God with us. The Youth Praise Night also teaches us how to worship God, and how to lead in a worship setting.
