Being a youth these days comes with many challenges. Standing firm and growing in Christ can be difficult as an adult, so how much more so for tweens and teens? Numerous demands as well as temptations are thrown at them daily while they are in the midst of defining their identities. Decisions, big and little, are made daily that help shape who they are and who they will become.
What can we do to help them? Pray for them and connect with them. That’s why we have the Adopt-a-Youth partnerships. You are invited to commit to praying for a few minutes most days for one youth throughout this school year. Youth prayer warriors are given basic information about his/her youth of the same gender and have the ability to contact him/her for prayer requests and encouragement. Right now we are in need of 7 more men to partner with our males youth in this manner. Please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to intercede for the next generation in this way. Contact Diane Kelley at [email protected] to ask questions or get connected with a youth. Thank you!!
