Youth Lighthouse Ministry
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
"He must increase..."
"...I must decrease."
YOUTH LIGHTHOUSE MINISTRY
Our Youth Lighthouse Ministry is the evangelistic arm of our youth ministry. It meets on Sunday nights from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm. This ministry features times of fun and study of God’s word specifically geared towards reaching the lost and equipping the believer to share their faith.
Decreasing Disciples is the discipleship arm of our youth ministry. John the Baptist stated, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). In following Jesus, that principle must become the lifestyle of every teenager. Jesus must increase as the center of one’s life and our own desires and passions must decrease. This discipleship ministry is not for every teen, but for those who have serious intent in their faith will benefit from this ministry.
The BBC youth group has a two-fold purpose: 1) teaching and building a strong gospel-centered heart in the life of the teens through the study of God’s Word as well as prayer and 2) for the youth to realize their potential as believers in worship, serving, and sharing the gospel.
We are a relationally focused ministry that seeks to build community among the students through an atmosphere that allows for our students to make connections, learn more about God, and have fun in a safe and spiritually-oriented context.
Students are encouraged to experience camp life, being away from home and living in an environment where the Spirit of God can use counselors and mature leaders to train them in the word of God. These experiences are often life altering and influential for spiritual maturity. Among other quality Christian camps in the U.S., our church historically has emphasized two particular camps for our children and teens to participate in their ministries: Scioto Hills in Southern Ohio and Word of Life in New York.
