AMP Youth is a safe and welcoming environment for all teens, ages 13-18, where we focus on building up a strong foundation of faith, love, and a relationship with God. One that they can stand tall on in their schools, communities, jobs, and in their families. One that won’t crumble and will stay firm in them when they move into adulthood, serving and being an example to the world.
We are passionate about our love for God and for others. We make this known in our worship and how we seek God. We also make our love for God known with our attitude towards others. We like to show the world our “Servitude Attitude”.
Through relationship building, worship, service, and teaching in the word, at AMP Youth we strive to help and encourage every teen in each of the following:
-Growth in Faith and a Relationship with Jesus.
-Becoming Examples of truly devoted Christ followers to their friends, neighbors, family, community, and to the world.
-Learning to be Attentive to the Lord’s voice.
-Growth in Knowledge of the word and truth.
-Becoming Submissive to His will.
-Finding comfort being “FREAKS” in the world.
We meet weekly on Sundays from 5:00pm until 7:00pm.
We like to have fun and enjoy some good snacks but the true purpose of coming together is to worship our heavenly father and to grow more in our faith and relationship with Him.
Other activities we do include summer camps (such as Camp Awesome), local and regional youth conferences, serving our community, as well as occasional small group hangouts and social events. We participate in local missions such as Isaiah House and “Mystery Missions”. Our AMP Youth serve as Agents for our Mystery Missions, and must be constantly ready to serve when called upon.
We also work to put together foreign mission trips to Guadalajara, Mexico biennial.
