Description: Welcome to "G.Y.M." also known as "Grace Youth Ministry" where we develop our youth for their God ordained destiny. G.Y.M believes that God has given every young person a voice that needs to be heard and a heart that needs to be loved. We will prepare you to be soul winners for Christ by addressing your life experiences with a Biblical approach. Your opinions, input, discussions and experiences WILL BE HEARD!
We'd like to take a moment to welcome all youth who are currently attending middle school or high school and encourage you to come and be a part of an awesome experience with God.
We will fellowship with you by participating in fun activities, outings, fundraisers and Bible study.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT to the GBF (Grace Bible Fellowship) family and we want to partner with you in shaping your role in the Kingdom of God. WE WANT TO SUPPORT YOU in your activities, both in and out of GBF.
We will accomplish this goal by offering several vehicles for the youth to express their hearts for Christ. One vehicle is our bi-weekly youth bible study that we affectionately call "Youth 4 Real." Youth 4 real (Y4R) meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month between from 6pm-7:30pm. This a time that youth gather for fellowship and a relevant bible study that speaks to the challenges they incur on a daily basis. Another vehicle is our 4th Saturday Night Youth Service, which we call H.Y.P.P.E NITE (Holy Young People Praising Emmanuel). This is an ALL youth-led service that features the God-given gifts of our youth. Lastly, we have an annual trip to a theme park in Southern California that allows the youth to experience fellowship with one another and youth leaders in a different environment that will foster a stronger bond in our ministry.
The G.Y.M. Leaders, Ministers and Counselors are passionate about our youth and their spiritual growth. Our ministry is intentional in developing our young people's "spiritual muscles" that will build them into STRONG young disciples of Christ. This transformation will manifest in their daily lives by impacting their peers with the love of Christ (1 Tim. 4:8 "For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and life to come"). God has called this peculiar generation to impact the times by being unique and different without compromising the standard of holiness that He has established in Christ (1 Pet. 2:9). Therefore, it is our mission to provide that platform.
We would like to invite all middle and high school youth between the ages of 12 and 18 to join the G.Y.M Ministry (and this one won't cost you any membership fees). We also invite adults who have a passion for developing young soul-winners for Christ to be a part of our leadership team.
For more information about youth events or participating in the ministry, please contact one of the following leaders. Bro. Osa Igiebor or Dec(s) Julie Fry Phone: 925-522-2017 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you and may God bless you for your obedience and WELCOME TO G.Y.M!
