View our Ministry Highlight of the week as we share the amazing things that will happen at the 2015 National Convention and that's happening within our church.
MINISTRY HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: YAM
Words from the YAM Director: YAM Nation get ready!
It is with great excitement that I request the presence of all young adults across the brotherhood at the 2015 national convention. Since the conception of the National Young Adult Ministry many people have been encouraged, helped and blessed by the workshops, service opportunities and events. We are expecting no less as we embark upon YAM 2015. The workshops are planned with the intent to focus on Young Adults and the struggles we face on a daily basis. It is our hope that we can fulfill the YAM focus to Recruit, Reclaim, and Retain (R3) young adults into the body of Christ.
Hope to see you in July, Min. Joy Morgan CTLG YAM President
2015 YAM Workshops
The Shades of Gray: The Shades of Gray is a workshop that focuses on puling young adults closer to Christ; specifically those not totally committed to God nor fully acquiesced to the world’s standards for living. While one has the desire to please God, temptation, and societal and peer pressure causes dissonance between doing “what’s right in God’s sight,” and doing “what feels right to the flesh.” This workshop will focus on serving God while fighting the temptations of the flesh. It will address relevant issues and questions regarding this “Gray zone.” A non-judgmental atmosphere will be encouraged, in which young adults can speak freely about what they are going through. Facilitators will be chosen to guide the discussion and bring wisdom, insight and scriptural application to the workshop. Facilitators: Evang Tait and Overseer Tait
Defeating The Enemy Within: This workshop will help young adults learn how to break the cycle of sin so they can learn to live a victorious and fulfilling Christian life. This workshop is designed to engage both the panel and audience in a question and answer dialogue that offers straight and biblical talk about the struggles of sin and how we can use the power of faith and prayer to overcome. Panelist: Bishop Waddell, Bishop Smith, Evangelist Goodlow, Evangelist Eleanor Tait
Verses and Tight Beats: Verses and Tight Beats will serve as a combination of the mixer and free flow events. There will be games to facilitate introductions and for attendees to share artistic gifts. In addition, we will invite guest artists and young adult ministries from other organizations to fellowship with us during our National meeting.
Youth Explosion: The purpose of the Youth Explosion: Praise in the Park is twofold: First, to fulfill the mandate in Mark 16:15 “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Praise in the Park will function as an outreach event Co-sponsored by the Young Adult Ministry, YPPU, Christian Education and the CTLG Outreach department. The goal is to provide a dynamic worship experience and proclaim the gospel to the local community. We hope to make an impact in their lives by catering to their physical and spiritual needs. Secondly, we wish to create excitement within our CTLG youth and young adults by building an atmosphere that is explosive, fun and Spirit filled. We anticipate spreading a contagious enthusiasm for worshiping God and outreach.
