Each spring and fall the College hosts a Leadership Advance. This provides leaders in the church a time of encouragement in their walk with God, an environment to talk with their colleagues and an opportunity to think and strategize how they can lead their churches to an even greater impact.
The Importance of Youth Ministry
In the past decade or so, there is an exodus of the younger generation leaving their faith at a crucial age and stage of their life. 71% of North American churched teens are choosing to leave their Christian faith by the age bracket of 15-18 years old. 27% of them might think of coming back to the faith only when they have children of their own. We will explore the reasons why they stay, leave, or come back and discuss the importance of youth ministry in the church and what kind of role it should play in growing disciples for Jesus.
