Youth Ministry

Welcome From The Senior Pastor

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to reach out to 6th through 12th grade students providing a place of fellowship and growth where we can connect with God, each other and the community.

Vision Statement:

We envision students seeing Christ as the anwer, getting an opportunity to know HIM better through worship, small group discussions and activities. Students are to love God and each other as Christ has loved us and they are to impact those around them with His Love!

Values:

  1. Love God and love other people with our entire being (Matt 22:37-40)

  2. Have a deeper relationship with God through reading Scriptures and daily Prayers (Psalm 119:11; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Joshua 1:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Acts 2:42)

  3. Build/Strengthen your faith (Hebrews 11:1-40; Romans 5:1-21, 3:21-26, 4:13-24)

  4. Stay connected to Christ (Colossians 2:6-7; John 15:1-10)

  5. Look at everyone with Christ-like compassion (Matthew 9:12, 13, 36; Luke 19:10)

  6. Reach out to others through faithful witnessing and evangelizing (Matthew 5:16, 28:19, 20)

  7. Don’t pursue temporary pleasures (Ephesians 5:12; Peter 2:1-3, 11-12; Hebrews 12:1-2, 1 John 2:15-17)

  8. Live life to the fullest with the joy that God provides (John 10:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Phillipians 4:6, 7)

JMI also strongly believe in encouraging our youth, uplifting, and providing guidance that we, as Christians, should be led by the spirit and not the flesh, to overcome one of the greatest challenges: temptation!
