A FRESH APPROACH TO Young Adult MINISTRY
Matthew 4:19-20 ESV
"And he said to them, 'Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.' Immediately they left their nets and followed Him."
What makes us different
Our mission is to equip young adults to make disciples who love and live like Jesus.
We do this by making sure each young adult is connected to a small group. We believe we were designed to be in relationship with God first and foremost, and secondly we are designed to be in relationship with others. The purpose of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus who can make disciples of Jesus. We do this with the understanding that relationship is the key vehicle. Our small groups have trained INTENTIONAL LEADERS to facilitate conversation. This is accomplished in a RELATIONAL ENVIRONMENT created by the College and Young Adult Pastor. This environment takes place on Tuesday Nights at 8pm as well as some men's and women's groups throughout the week. When young adults graduate and go into the World they will be equipped to use this REPRODUCIBLE PROCESS to make disciples for the rest of their lives. This entire process is completed over a BIBLICAL FOUNDATION.
This leader understands that part of their role is to reach the lost, make disciples of Jesus and create Christ centered environments where disciple making can happen. They understand where a person is spiritually and what is needed to help them grow.
This is a group of 3-18 people, facilitated by a leader who is intentionally modeling spiritual fruit. (love, joy, etc) The people involved are doing life together with a kingdom mindset. The relationships go beyond the small group time, they move from strangers to friendship. These relationships press into areas of transparency and vulnerability.
This is the process for developing people towards Christ likeness. This includes three parts: “My Part,” “Their Part” and “God’s Part”. This leader understands the 5 stages of spiritual growth. They can identify where a person is spiritually, and help them mature and grow at each stage of the spiritual growth process.
We believe we are designed to be in relationship with God first and foremost, and secondly we are designed to be in relationship with others. The purpose of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus, who can make disciples of Jesus. We do this with the understanding that relationship is the key vehicle.

The Greatest Commandment
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And a second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
