Young people must be taught the clear commandments of God’s Word. The Bible says in II Timothy 2:2, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
The purpose of the local church youth ministry is to help equip families with the necessary tools from God’s Word to lay the right foundation for the rest of their life. It is not our task to take the place of parents but to be that supportive arm that is always faithful to assist each home in any way that we can. We must work to help entire family learn to serve the Lord together. The purpose of the youth director is to walk with God and be a blessing to the youth and a help to the parents.
