At Harvest, we love the next generation and are committed to leading them in staying faithful to church during their middle and high school years. Youth America Local meets all over the Oklahoma City Metro and in Stillwater. Students ranging from 6th-12th grade meet the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesday nights of the month in small groups at 7:00pm. Along with this, we have a monthly service called Youth America Night where students from the Oklahoma City Metro and beyond come together for one big service at our Oklahoma City Campus!
There are 5 needs of a teenager that we focus on at Youth America Local:
Young people have a powerful voice in the world and we want them to know that their opinions, story and words are valued and that they are believed in. This is why we hold weekly small groups supplying them with 2 to 3 leaders in their life who will be a consistent voice of encouragement and wisdom for them but also being a non-judgmental open ear as well.
We believe that some of the most life giving and long lasting friendships are those that are created in the church. In the students’ small group we believe that they will create divine friendships that will be positive for their lives and who will hold each other up and remind each other of their God-given purpose.
An Ownership of the Great Commission
The purpose of the church is much greater than just simply attending church. We believe that we are to own the responsibility Jesus has given to see our friends, family and beyond come into a relationship with God and begin to own the Great Commission themselves. We help accomplish this each week by leading the students to invite and bring their friends to their small group.
A Personal Relationship with Jesus
Having a personal relationship with Jesus is the backbone of the life of any Christian. We believe that as young people grab hold of this at a young age and seeing what this relationship with Jesus truly looks like, they will be set beyond their years, as they get older. We help accomplish this each week in small groups through devotions, group studies and much more.
Being Part of a Movement Worth Living For
Young people are constantly searching for something bigger than themselves to be part of and we want to show them that the cause of the local church is that greatest movement. We help to make this a reality when we bring all of our students together for our monthly Youth America Night. Participating in this night gives them an opportunity to see the vastness of the impact the local church is making all over Oklahoma.
If you have any questions about getting your student signed up for a small group in your area please feel free to contact one of our youth ministry team members!
