Adventist Youth Society (AYS)

Leader Joseph Bosire

 

 

Mission:

The primary focus of Youth Ministry is the salvation of youth through Jesus Christ. We understand youth ministry to be that work of the church that is conducted for, with, and by young people. 

Task:

  • Lead youth to understand their individual worth and to discover and develop their spiritual gifts and abilities.
  • Equip and empower youth for a life of service within God’s church and the community.
  • Ensure the integration of youth into all aspects of church life and leadership in order that they might be full participants in the mission of the church. 

Objectives:

  • We will achieve a balanced ministry by incorporating the biblical dynamics of fellowship, nurture, worship, and mission.
  • We will be committed to keeping relevant and effective in ministry by relating all ministries to the needs of the youth. It is imperative that we listen to and are informed by their perceptions, concerns, and suggestions. Effective ministry becomes possible in an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and forgiveness.
  • We will conduct ongoing research to discover areas that need attention. We are committed to experimentation and innovation in our programs because we recognize the ever-changing nature of today’s youth.
  • We will find inspiration in God’s word and our history, and have faith in God for the future. Our philosophy will find expression in a wide variety of God-ordained ministry styles and programs.
