Live your faith out loud!

WHY YOUTH GROUP MATTERS:  Dare 2 Share president Greg Stier offers five reasons parents should keep their kids involved in youth group:


Teenagers need models and mentors. They need additional adults in their lives reinforcing the spiritual habits they’re learning from you.


Teenagers need community. They benefit from friends who challenge them in all the right ways.


Teenagers need mission. The “activist” wiring of this generation makes them great Gospel-sharers.


Teenagers need theology. Learning about their faith helps kids own it in a personal way.


Teenagers need a safe place to confess and confide. Accountability with friends often gives young people the courage to confess at home.

Don't let anyone look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.
