Young people are enjoying the pursuit of learning the ways of Jesus together. God has always called young men and women to stand for Him and proclaim His greatness to their generation. Teenagers learning to support one another in community is vital to any church. The pressures of society are intense but young minds are up to the challenge of a personal and team walk with God.
Youth have always been an integral component of the Mountain View Chapel family. As a teen embraces Christ by grace through faith, he/she becomes the church. Teens are not the church of tomorrow but the church of today. Young people model amazing levels of faith, hope, and love.
Making young disciples is the process of a relational ministry:
- Personal/friendship relationships
- Corporate worship opportunities
- Youth Leadership development
- Service Projects
- Teen Bible study settings
- Youth Events (see upcoming events tab)
- Out of Country involvement for leadership, evangelism, & discipleship
- Living life together
1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV) "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
