Youth Ministry

Studying The Word Of GodHere at the newark Baptist Temple, our youth ministry is not something that we take lightly. We recognize that the Youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. If there is one word that could encompass the approach we take with our young people, it would have to be "INVESTMENT." There is so much potential in every life that comes under our influence, and we want to be sure to make the right investment into each life.

 

A Personal Investment

Nothing is ever made real in any of our lives until it is personal to us. Jesus Christ made a point to make a personal investment in the lives of people, specifically his disciples. The Christian life needs to become real and personal to all of us. We desire to help each young person feel loved and important in God's work by developing a personal relationship with them

 

A Purposeful Investment

To have a youth ministry just to say you have a youth ministry would be quite shallow. Our purpose is to allow young people to be in an atmosphere where they can:

    1. Hear the Word of God clearly taught
    2. Make lasting friendships
    3. Enjoy good, clean fun
    4. Glorify Jesus Christ in all things

Whether your child desires to be a pastor, teacher, architect, computer programmer, Salesman, or many other things; God desires for all of us to live according to his Word. It is the purpose of our investment to help our young people understand these things.

 

A Passionate Investment

The Bible says "Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men (Colossians 3:23) Nobody likes a half-hearted effort. Few can spot an apathetic attitude like a teenager can. Our young people need to see a passion to serve the Lord in our lives as we invest in them.

 
You would want to make the right choice if you were investing a large sum of money. The lives of our young people cannot be given a value. We do not desire to take the place of any parent, but rather we desire to join alongside in these years for your child.
 
It would be an honor to be involved in the life of your child and in the investment that could pay dividends for the rest of their life.
