MISSION & VALUES
Bringing youth to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Youthfront is a community committed to creating holistic, missional environments for Christian formation.
Knowing that the greatest contribution that we can make to the Christian formation of others is the example of our own lives, Youthfront is committed to pursuing passionate intimacy with Jesus Christ. Out of an overflow of an intimate relationship with Jesus, we commit to sharing life together, building meaningful relationships that extend God’s love to one another.
A growing relationship with Jesus Christ involves the renewal of the whole person. A healthy condition of the spiritual, physical, mental and social aspects of our lives are critical to a sturdy, growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Youthfront is committed to helping youth workers and students develop their entire being.
As the Church seeks to find ways to cooperate with God’s mission to restore the world, Youthfront is passionately committed to assisting in this endeavor. Youthfront’s camps, programs, training, resources, experiences and other ministry initiatives are intentionally designed to assist the Church in contextualizing the good news of Jesus Christ. We strive to be creative youth workers who engage in theology, ministry, formation, practice, relationships, service and life with a prophetic imagination that cooperates fully with the Mission of God.
The external factors and conditions that surround people influence and affect their lives. Youthfront is committed to nurturing environments for youth workers and students to encounter God in a transformational way. While we know that transformation is the work of the Holy Spirit and not a formula that we enact, we will intentionally create environments of space, time, hospitality and community. The environments that Youthfront creates are intended to help youth workers and students discover, explore and experience God.
We believe that evangelism and discipleship are a process of one’s life-long spiritual journey. We are committed to helping youth workers and students embrace the essential elements of the Christian faith. We are devoted to the calling, inspiring and equipping of youth workers and students toward the pursuit of becoming like Jesus Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit, Scripture, the Church community, prayer and other spiritual practices.
