I Love Jesus Youth Ministry

"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me." (Mark 9:37)

Children and youth have always been an important asset to church, and they are indicative of the quality of the church. A successful church needs a successful youth ministry. That is why the Evangelical Assembly of Presbyterian Churches in America puts a strong focus on our children, and strives to make a fun and vibrant youth ministry. Through the work of many staff members and employees, the EAPCA is always trying to improve on the way it teaches its youth as well as nurturing their growth in Christ. The EAPCA also realizes how important it is for its kids to have a good time as well.

The I Love Jesus Youth Ministry focuses on young children up to teenagers. We do realize there is a large difference between the two groups, so that is why there are a variety of programs and activities to help them mature. Children are separated by age groups to better fit their levels, which in turn will help them develop more quickly and effectively.

It is a prime concern for all children growing up within the EAPCA to have Jesus Christ as their center and as their focus. They should have a firm foundation in the love of God, leading to absolute faith later in life. An adult is much more prone to live their lives as Christians if they have a proper Christian educational upbringing. That is why we must invest our time and lives into giving youth the full amount of resources to help them make life long decisions as followers of Christ.

In addition to learning about the love of Christ, our youth ministry also puts a large focus on fellowship. As do all Christians, our youth need to simply meet together for good, clean fun activities. Through a large variety of games, discussions, drama plays, musical performances, and such, children and teens can be able to exalt the Lord while enjoying life. It is also important to impress upon our youth the importance of pure extracurricular activities that give praise to God.

Our current era is so overridden with sinful play that children must grow up in an ppropriate atmosphere to overcome it. Children and teens should learn how to live properly, honoring God with their actions, even in their isure time.

At the EAPCA, parents can be rest assured that their children are being taken care of and brought up under the love of God. Children truly are our future, so they must have strong character associated with Christ. The EAPCA prides itself on this, and we hope that parents can come to this same conclusion as well.
