OUR MINISTRY TO YOUR CHILDREN
SPIRIT OF FAITH CHRISTIAN CENTER YOUTH DEPARTMENT
Will they choose alcohol, drugs and pre‐marital sex? Will his or her lifestyle be conformed to what everyone else is doing? Will they choose the philosophy of humanism and view Christ as only an illusion? EMPHATICALLY, NO!! The youth of Spirit of Faith Christian Center are being taught about the importance of making quality decisions based on the Word of God. They are choosing that which leads to BLESSINGS, not curses, LIFE, not death. With the expertise of our Youth Ministry Staff, our youth are setting the pace for their generation.
The purpose of the Spirit of Faith Christian Center Youth Department is to minister to the needs of youth from birth until the age of 19 by providing ways for youth to understand and know God. Our challenge is to share and enable the youth to experience the Gospel ‐ the Good News of God ‐ in every possible way, using every medium to convey it over and over. The ultimate result is that they choose Christ!
Blaze Babies will minister to the needs of children between three (3) months and two (2) years of age to “experience Jesus” through music, puppet ministry and nursery workers who endeavor to meet both their spiritual and physical needs. Children are provided a safe and comfortable atmosphere with careful supervision in order to “free up” their parents during the Worship and mid‐week Bible Study services
The purpose of the Blaze Ministry is to minister to the needs of the children between the ages of 3 to 12 years old. The children are taught praise and worship, prayer, testimony, songs of victory, and Word songs to “walk into an experience with Jesus.”
