Psalms 78:4 “… tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord”
First Baptist Church Langley’s Youth Ministry exists to assist parents in evangelizing and equipping the next generation through worship, discipleship, ministry, fellowship, and evangelism. We are very excited and blessed to be bringing on our new Youth Pastor, Walker Bott, on September 1st, 2014 to lead these efforts.
Our purpose is to exhort every teen to glorify Christ (worship), to teach them submission to the authority of God’s Word (discipleship), to instruct them in using their spiritual gifts for ministry through the local church (ministry & fellowship), and to instill in them a passion for the lost, sending them out as leaders for the next generation (evangelism).
Our youth ministries are designed to be an encouragement and complement to your ministry as parents, not a substitute. The Scriptures are clear that parents have the primary God-given responsibility for bringing up their children. As you are well aware, this is not an easy task but it is not a task that God intends for parents to do on their own. God has given the body of Christ, the church, to encourage, equip, and assist parents in this process.
