Our purpose as the Alabama District Youth Department is simply to win, build, and send students, while equipping youth leaders to fulfill their calling to reach this generation in their local church. Our mission is focused on winning students to Christ, building them up in their faith, and sending them out in empowered ministry. We have many programs and events throughout the year that facilitate the carrying out this mission. To help students grow deeper in their spiritual walk, we host Deeper Discipleship Weekend and Resonate Young Adult Weekend, in addition to Youth Convention where thousands of students and leaders rally together for the cause of Christ. The focal point of our ministry events is Youth Camp, where we see thousands more over the span of four weeks saved, healed, filled with the Spirit, called into ministry. We bring in several nationally recognized youth communicators, worship bands, and ministries to assist us during these various events throughout the year.
We also implement several programs to fulfill the purposes of the local church. One cornerstone of our ministry programs is emphasizing missions through encouraging students and churches to give to Speed the Light and sending students and leaders on short-term missions trips all over the world through Ambassadors In Missions. Students develop their ministry talents through Fine Arts and are equipped to reach their schools through Youth Alive. You cannot have strong students without strong leaders, therefore we also seek to reach and develop leaders to guide these students by providing resources and training. We provide opportunities for these leaders to network and collaborate with others at our Youth Leaders Summit. The youth of our state are the next generation of leaders and through these programs and events, we strive to prepare them for the calling God has on their lives. It is the desire of Alabama Youth Ministries to make our future as great as the one our Pentecostal heritage set before us!
