Youth Ministry


 

Bethel A.M.E. Church of Paterson exists in order to help the students in our community take the next step in their journey to know, love, serve, and share Christ.

TO KNOW:
We engage, equip, and evangelize students by helping them understand and live God’s Word with the goal that they bring Him glory in all relationships in all aspects of life.

HOW IT HAPPENS…

Insightful teaching times on Wednesdays and Sundays
Interactive small groups and discipleship classes
Intimate one-on-one teaching and ministry to each student

TO LOVE:
The more we know God – His attributes and character and how much He loves us – the more we are able to love and trust Him. We show our love for God through our worship.

HOW IT HAPPENS
In praise times during Sunday and Wednesday services

In a lifestyle that reflects our love for God
In our fellowship and care for one another
Events such as retreats, camps, and Disciple Now show us ways to love God better and truer. There will be many opportunities for fun and fellowship that will help maintain a healthy view of a loving body of Christ.

TO SERVE:
As we learn to love God more, we start looking for ways to use our gifts, time, and resources for the things God cares about. The development of the student and adult leadership group will help to equip students and leaders to know how to most effectively minister and serve.

HOW IT HAPPENS (JUST SOME OF THE WAYS)…

Sunday or Wednesday leadership (worship, teaching, mentoring)
Participating in missions trips
Regular outreach and service projects.

TO SHARE:
There is no greater service we can offer than to share the good news of Jesus.

HOW IT HAPPENS…
Missions trips and Outreach events
Giving students the tools and resources to know how to confidently share their faith
