Description of Ministry
The Youth Ministry provides a forum for youth involvement in the church, which includes the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) composed of youth leaders, representatives and adults, who plan and execute youth functions to support the church’s mission. Youth develop leadership skills, team work, program planning, Christian fellowship, and shadow each other to prepare for and model leadership skills.
The mission is to foster and strengthen the Christian experience of First Mount Olive Youth through spiritual growth, character, discipleship and leadership development. The Youth Ministry programs are focused on the following guiding principles: 1). Demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23); 2) Minister through Biblical education (2Timothy 2:15); 3) Outreach through Christian fellowship and community services (Matthew 18:20) and 4) Promote fun, age-appropriate, safe and safe and Christian experiences (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
