You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you. (John 15:16 MSG)
Who We Are
The CMBC Youth & Young Adult Ministry, “The Chosen,” exists to ignite the passion of children, youth and young adults to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. The ministry provides them with the necessary resources to aid in their growth spiritually, physically, emotionally, and educationally, and develops their gifts and talents for the body of Christ so they will become contributing members of society.
There are five elements that continually drive every aspect of our Youth & Young Adult Ministry. The five elements are:
- Introduce: Fulfilling God’s purpose of Evangelism (Acts 1:8)
- Growth: Fulfilling God’s purpose of Discipleship (Heb. 6:1; Matt. 28:18-20)
- Lifestyle: Fulfilling God’s purpose of Livelihood (Romans 12:1)
- Relationships: Fulfilling God’s purpose of Fellowship (Eph. 2:19)
- Service: Fulfilling God’s purpose of Ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12)
