Youth Fellowship

WHO WE ARE (Vision)

To thoroughly equip young people in the Church with the Word of God and with knowledge and skill necessary to enable them to lay a foundation to thrive in life and godliness throughout their lives.

WHAT WE DO (MISSION)

PCYM exists to transform, equip, and build the lives of the youths in church by establishing a firm foundation in faith, rooted and build up in Christ (Col 2:7), and preaching Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 1:23) for a positive impact in society.

To achieve this, PCYM actively engages young people in activities that develop their Christian faith and character; train and grow their talent, skill, vocation, profession and social skills based on the Bible; encounter wholesome social support; and advance God’s Kingdom by influencing others to share these experiences.

OUR PASSION (STATEMENT OF FAITH)

  • We believe God is calling and setting apart young people to show forth His glory and excellence in this generation
  • We believe that by starting young, we can build a foundation that will continue to help the church of Christ flourish for years to come.
  • We believe that God makes available an exciting and full life for young people right now, without having to indulge in sinful behaviour.
  • We believe that life in God is never boring as the world may perceive.
  • We believe the young people are the coolest people on the face of the earth with unlimited potential to accomplish significant things on their journey with God - follow and live for Jesus for the rest of their lives.
  • We believe we have been called and commissioned to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with all whose paths we cross: our families, friends, and our world in order to build a Kingdom-minded generation that will take Christian transformation to all the Nations.

OUR AIM (OBJECTIVES)

  • To be examples in speech, conduct (Action), love, faith and purity.
  • To be rooted and built up in Christ Jesus.

  • Discipleship – Making Jesus our focus and striving to be more like Him every day. [“This is a place where I see Jesus.”]
  • Grace– Unmerited favor, a gift Christ offers freely; showing grace through practicing unconditional love. [“This is a place that I’m not judged.”]
  • Scripture– Learning and growing in our understanding of God’s Word and applying it to our daily lives. [“This is a place where God speaks to me.”]
