“Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up plants, and our daughters as coner pillars fashioned as for a palace” (Psalm 144:12)
Ebenezer Church of God of Prophecy’s youth group is dedicated to the discipleship of teens. We strive to create an environment that is fun, spiritually stimulating and most of all, spiritually challenging to our members. We strive to create a place centered on fun and fellowship but will not sacrifice the sharing of truthful scripture. We challenge students to improve their Christian walk by constantly reminding them that Christ is the standard by which we are to judge ourselves.

Who strongly believe that God has a purpose for each individual and that honesty between brothers and sisters in Christ is one of the four cornerstones of a church built for God.

I have been a member of Ebenezer Church of God of Prophecy from its very inception in 1997. I was about 9 years old when the first service took place. I truly believe that God has a plan for each one of us. I am passionate about our youth, they are at the most vulnerable space mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is our job to win their souls. I plan to continue planting seeds and letting God do the rest.
I am a wife, mother to two boys. I have my Masters degree in Healthcare Administration and I am director of memory care at an assisted living in New Jersey.

I have been humbly serving the church since the age of 14. Now at the age of 30, I am more eager to serve God and help push his Kingdom work forward as a servant leader to the youth. I participate in a variety of ministries at the church: ushering, worship team, youth ministries, but I find I am more drawn to work with the youth. God has worked in me and has given me patience, wisdom, and courage, and has given me a spirit of selflessness and I know these qualities are continuing to grow in me as he guides me to help lead our youth to be a generation ready for what the world has to throw at us.
I am a married mother to two boys. I have my Bachelors degree in Psychology and work as a support counselor for youth in Ocean County, New Jersey.
While many youth group activities are focused on Bible study, prayer, outreach, missions, and other spiritual pursuits, one thing some youth leaders forget is that Christian teens also need time together for fun and fellowship. Youth group ought to be more than just a place where students come to learn about the Bible; it should be a community where believers learn, grow, and enjoy life together as the family of God.
It’s important for youth groups to plan activities that reach beyond Sunday meetings. Planned youth group activities and outings help to foster close relationships between students. They also provide opportunities for teens to invite non-Christian friends who are wary of organized religion to less-threatening events. Here are some ideas for outings that most Christian teens can’t pass up.
