KINGDOM YOUTH MINISTRY (Age group 11-18)
“EVERY YOUNG PERSON IN A DISCIPLESHIP ENVIRONMENT”
Here at KYM, we believe that we have a positive relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. Through the relationship we have with God, we have the call to lead the next generation into this perfect relationship called Eternal life. Here is how Jesus prayed about it…
John 17:3New International Version (NIV)
3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
The word ’know’ in His prayer doesn’t refer to intellectual knowledge but it does refer to a personal relationship. For instance you may know a lot about someone through films, music, football, fashion…etc, because you admire the person you end up following what the person is all about. Because of the intellectual knowledge you know about this person through reading, listening… You end up talking about him or talking about her as if you share the same room. When you talk about her or him, you make it sound like you know him or her personally. However, that is not the case because if someone has to ask the other person about you? She or he will definitely say I don’t know him or her. The point is many of us have an intellectual knowledge about God because when you are asked if you know God? You may answer yes; because he created all things or else but a few of us have a positive relationship with God. Jesus in his word said…
John 10:27-30New International Version (NIV)
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
To build a positive relationship with God through Jesus Christ is the most important matter in this life. Because everything else will pass away except your relationship with God, that will keep you forever to be with Him eternally. We have the passion to serve the next generation to know the love of God that was revealed through the death of Christ on the cross. We spread the love of Christ in to the work we do among the younger generation. We love and care for each young person whom we have in our care. If you are young person who is seeking to know God in order to build a positive relationship with Him? You have come to right place, Please come and join us every Sunday morning at 10:30am to 12:00noon.
Besides meeting on Sunday’s we also organise retreats for all age groups where we take the young people away on a weekend residential retreat. During the retreat we spend more time on studying the word of God, prayer and worship. We also run every Friday ”East London Friday youth club” near West Ham station from 1-4pm during summer break and 6pm-9pm during school time.
