In India the youth make up the majority of the population – nearly 40%. The future of any institution impacting the future depends on the youth catching the vision and running with it.
The future of the church too depends on the youth of the church and the ones they will bring to the Lord.
Fortunately the Faith Community Church has a youth group which is serious and committed to developing a Youth Centered Ministry. One of the main aim of these young hearts on fire is reaching to their peers in schools, colleges and campus with the Gospel of Jesus and preventing their friends from going astray. They make every attempt to live a life that is a testimony to others of Christ living in their hearts. Another area that is being concentrated is forming a Worship Band for the Glory of God.
They also plan to play good decent music at
Christian weddings and functions. Various camps and activities like meetings and youth services are held to develop their personalities and equip them with the tools and resources that will win more young souls for the Kingdom of Heaven. The salient feature of the youth ministry at FCC is that it is for the youth by the youth with an overall supervision by Pastors and elders.
This summer a variety of activities have been planned for the youth.
A youth summer camp is an outing these young ones are looking forward to. It is to be held at Gogol Christian Centre at Margao and the youth will be together for over 4 days. Rev. Valson from Hyderabad will be here with his team to conduct the camp. Through this camp we hope many youth will come to know the calling of God in their lives. We hope to develop them through constructive training and creative activities.
The Sunday Youth Service at church is a great time for the youth to fellowship with their friends. There they play music they like and hear a message that is relevant to their lives. We hope the youth will grow into adults who will be a great blessing to our church and Goa.
