What do we do?
Point young people to Jesus Christ to experience ‘life to the full’ through him. John 10:10
He (Jesus) is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. Colossians 1:28
The Method: Proclaim Jesus
We seek to declare the good news of who Jesus is and what he has done. We do this by clearly communicating what is true about him– teaching – as well as correcting what is false – admonishing.
By doing so…
The Goal: Present Everyone Mature in Christ
This means seeing every person develop a personal trust in the Lord Jesus producing a life of meaning and joy with him.
At St John’s we eagerly desire to see young people knowing Jesus, growing in Jesus, and showing Jesus to the world around them. So, like the apostle Paul, the focus of our ministry is to teach God’s word, the Bible. For in the Bible we meet Jesus and discover what is true about God, ourselves and the world that God has made.
Of course knowing Jesus both occurs in, and develops, an awesome community. So we also have a great time along the way – real relationships, hanging out and enjoying great activities.
