Youth Mentoring Ministry
"We cared so much for you that we were pleased to share with you not only the Gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us."
1 Thessalonians 2:8
Purpose of Ministry:
To guide young people into spiritual growth through friendship.
We are searching for people to wholeheartedly invest in the youth of Feather Sound Church through personal example, encouragement, helpful guidance, intentional friendship and love. Young people need godly adults to speak love and truth into their lives. Our prayer is for formation of strong and lasting relationships that are a source of support, growth and strength.
The key to building relationships with young people is integrity. Be you! There is no need to change the way you talk, dress or behave in order to gain their trust. You just must offer your undivided attention and unconditionally love and commitment. Do so by asking intentional questions, listening well and seeking understanding. Make the student a part of your life, and live out your faith before them.
Consider joining Facebook or Instagram if you have not already. Social media allows you a glimpse into students' lives - you will see and read about the students' interests and involvement. It also give you a platform on which to encourage them, share a Bible verse, etc.
Hobbies are another great avenue through which to share life with a student. Use your hobbies as an opportunity to build relationships in a low-pressure setting.
A commitment to the Youth Mentoring Ministry includes a minimum of 30 minutes per week, weekly contact through an email, text or phone call, a monthly in-person meeting and regular prayer.
"One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your might acts."
