Youth at the Threshold of Life or the High School Ministry
Young students are like a wet cement. Whatever falls on them leaves a mark and they are also easier to shape. A Christian role model can have a great influence and impact in a student’s life and not only but as well through them, in their parents and teachers lives.
There are over 3 000.000 students in Romania and 850. 000 of them are high school students. Only 1% of them are born-again Christians. The rest of them need Christ in their lives! Our goal is to share the Gospel person to person with each high school student from every high school in Romania.
For sharing the Gospel we mostly use one to one discussions, we approach different themes of interest for their daily life in small group evangelization and seminars and camps (big group evangelization).
We have learned that one of the most effective ways to share the Gospel with high school students is to connect with them on their fields of interest and to respond to a certain felt need. That is why we use tools that respond to their needs: poor self image, loneliness and insecurity, peer-pressure, lack of real friends, fear of commitment, drug use, alcohol, immorality, sexually transmitted diseases, rampant abortion, etc. So, we to share the Gospel in a natural environment.
Through Bible study, prayer and a healthy community we help them grow in their journey with the Lord and become the young men and women that God created them to be. We help them center their lives on Christ. They are mentored either by a staff or by a more mature believer in knowing how to grow spiritually as well how to reach out to others with the gospel. Our desire is to see students growing in their faith and being equipped to help others after them to grow as well. We want to develop multiplying leaders for Christ and the Great Commission.
Our desire is to fulfill the Great Commission in Romania and to the ends of the earth through International projects, exchange programs with Christian students from other countries, short term and long term international mission teams.
