CHIRST HARVEST YOUTH MINSTRY(CHYM)
Remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, ‘I find no pleasure in them’...
Christ Harvest Youth Ministry consists of ages 13-19 year olds, headed by two Youth leaders who are passionate about bringing the youth into their God given purpose by causing them to be focused in Christ, motivated in Christ and being a light wherever they go or find themselves: at home, in school, out on the streets, in church, amongst peers.
Youth meetings are held at least twice a month. The youth are encouraged to study the word of God regularly and bible quizzes are held in every meeting to encourage them to this. The youth are also given opportunities to share a message to encourage them in the House of God and keep them motivated in serving the Lord.
We encourage the youths to use their talents and gifting as a way of keeping them focused in life, using it as a blessing to others and eventually having these giftings open doors for them in their lives;
Proverbs 18:16 (New International Version)
A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great
