The Twickenham Youth Ministry exists for teenagers 6th through 12th grades in order that they may experience and grow deeper in their life relationships. The relationships we desire for them to strengthen are those with God, with each other, with their families, and with those who do not know Jesus.
Our relationship with God is of utmost importance. We were created for this. We were made to be in and grow deeper into an intimate relationship with our Creator, daily learning more about who He is and who He calls us to be.
Growing in our relationship with God is not easily done alone. We desire for the teens in our ministry to be pursuing this together, encouraging each other in that pursuit. The best friend to have is one who will lead you toward Jesus.
However, the Twickenham Youth Ministry is not a replacement for the families God has given us. Our hope is simply to be a resource that works alongside parents as they try to teach and guide their children through one of the most crucial stages of life.
Lastly, but not of least importance, is the relationship that we have with those in the world who do not know Jesus. It is our desire that anything we do might allow others to see Him more clearly in spite of the distractions of this world. Our hope is to put others above ourselves.
In growing deeper in these four areas of relationship, we can’t help but to have a greater love for God and a greater love for others, just as the greatest and second greatest commandments call us to. In this, we will know God, and others will see Him by the way we live our lives. This is our greatest desire for the Twickenham Youth Ministry.
