The statistics are exciting, disturbing, and challenging all at the same time. They tell us that between 90% and 95% of the people who come to Christ do so before they are 25 years of age. Youth and Discipleship ministries is on the forefront of what the church is doing to reach this generation for Christ. We are serious and strategic in evangelizing and discipling students.
Hawaii Youth and Discipleship seeks to:
Provide quality training and resourcing to local student ministry leaders (full-time, part-time, and volunteer) better equipping them for service in the greatest and most exciting mission field of our day, Hawaii’s vibrant student culture.
To establish a strong support network among Hawaii’s student ministry leaders. Providing prayer support, peer mentoring, and authentic friendships.
Provide relevant, regional and state-wide, ministry opportunities for students to encounter the presence of God through worship, teaching/preaching, involvement in ministry, development of God given talents, and genuine fellowship.
