We are Family
VIBE Youth Group Ministry is a haven for middle and high school students to come hang out with their friends, build relationships, have fun, and develop their faith and trust in God.
We are in the middle of a teaching series titled “We Are Family.” Each mentor and two of our youth will teach on their view of family. The goal of this series is to learn that family goes beyond our biological families, as it is comprised of people who love and accept you as you are and always have your back. Our model for family comes from Acts 2:42-47.
“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.”
Youth mentors are vital to VIBE in order to build relationships with middle and high school students through caring and spiritual guidance. The Apostle Paul met Timothy when Timothy was very young. Immediately, Paul saw his potential, and spent years investing in Timothy’s gifts, training him as a leader, and releasing him into meaningful ministry. Our goal is to love, inspire, exhort, mentor, and release a group of young leaders into our community and campuses.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
Thank you to Allison, Matt, Kimberly, Danijela, Derek and Charis for mentoring and serving the youth selflessly. A special thanks, too, to our youth mentor William for his service and dedication over the last 8 months. William has recently relocated to Dallas, where he will be working in a new assignment with Texas Instruments.
We are currently seeking additional VIBE youth mentors. The only prerequisite is a heart for serving middle and high school students. Please contact Pastor Jonathan at email@example.com if this is a ministry you are interested in serving.
