Baptist Youth Fellowship (BYF) Aka “Senior Bible Youth Fellowship”
Our vision is to inspire youth to become lifetime disciples of Christ. We strive not to entertain, but to have students entertain a real, personal, and growing relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and King!
We aim to focus on five main areas with our youth group: Fellowship, Worship, Discipleship, Evangelism and Ministry. Moreover we believe that when students are given opportunities to personally experience these purposes, they can learn to apply these Biblical truths to practical living.
Fellowship: Through weekly meetings, we attempt to develop a place where youth are welcomed, known, loved, and encouraged in their spiritual journey.
Worship: In addition to encouraging students to honor God with their lives, which is a spiritual act of worship, we also encourage them to plug in to a local body of believers where worship/love for God can be expressed through singing, praising, praying, hearing God’s word, baptizing, breaking bread, and giving.
Discipleship: Through consistent reading of God’s Word, prayer, and guidance from the Holy Spirit, youth are encouraged to grow in a relationship with God and therefore, become more Christ-like as they grow in their faith and produce “spiritual fruit.”
Evangelism: As Christians, we believe that sharing Jesus with others is our responsibility and our privilege. As leaders, we believe we must model a passionate faith as a life-style and desire to build relationships with others in which we might share the saving grace of Jesus! Students are given many opportunities though-out the year to get “outta the box” to help develop confidence in sharing their stories with others who may not know Christ.
Ministry: We encourage students to be the hands and feet of Christ and “minister” God’s love to those around them through various service opportunities, ultimately becoming Kingdom-builders!
