From the very beginning, the youth ministry has played a vital role in the life of the church. Today they have formed Drama and Music Groups.They regularly minister during church services and hold overnight prayer and meetings every Tuesday.
Within the fundamental steps towards maturity is learning to accept and even ask for corrective feedback in your years as a youth, your friendships and other areas of life.
Among other things, the Zion City Church youth ministry is committed to three pillars. These are: Spiritual growth, Economic empowerment and Healthy relationships.
As adults we have the capacity to understand that people are not categorized by being all good or all bad. We all have sin and weaknesses in our lives but as Christians we also have the desire to do what is right. As we yield more to the spirit of God, we have the power to choose what is right instead of what is selfish or evil. But that doesn’t mean we don’t make mistakes and have blind spots.
On spiritual growth, the ministry has endeavored to nurture youths in their walk with Christ by having sessions of sharing and discussing God’s Word, expository preaching, overnight prayers every Tuesday, prayer and fasting. Youths have been encouraged to develop a culture of personal daily devotion for their growth in the Knowledge of God’s word. Talents are nurtured in this ministry where youths are motivated to participate in different church activities and take up different responsibilities. Shekinah Youth Choir is one of those avenues for spiritual growth.
Economic empowerment has been done through mentoring and forums where youths who are successful in business are interviewed and they give insight on entrepreneurship. The ministry is planning to have more of these mentoring sessions and also a businessmen/women forum.
Godly and Healthy Relationships is a very vital ingredient in the youths’ walk with Christ. In this ministry, youths are encouraged to get into relationships having inquired from God and relate in purity yet have a good time in dating and courtship.
God will not condemn you when you admit your weakness and sin. Instead, He promises to forgive you and to cleanse you completely. (1 John 1:9-10)
With open arms we welcome you to join the Zion City Youth Ministry where you will find yourself and your relationships growing by leaps and bounds.
