Wednesday evenings, the Youth Discipleship Ministry meet in their age and grade appropriate classes in order to study the Word of God so that our youth know the Word for themselves. The Youth Discipleship Ministry uses the Hands on Bible Curriculum entitled “Faith Weaver Now curriculum” as a guideline to create sessions that are aligned with Bishop's teaching series to help our youth learn to serve as Christ’s disciples for life. Youth will discover the principals for victorious living and will learn to know Jesus, love Him, obey Him and serve Him.
