Subject: Young Adult Session
Key Points to Ponder: Young Adult Town Hall Session for 27 December 2012
The purpose of this one-on-one session is to have an informal conversation with the generation that is in a world that has evolved around many issues confronting today’s church. From social issues, education, moral issues, family life, and many other areas of adult-life. The scripture had declared these words: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20) The times we are living in are confronting each of you in a manner that has never been presented to the level it is now. It almost seem like the world doesn’t want any order, chastisement, sound advice, or adhere to good discipline and order.
Lastly; the next scripture is a revealing point to ponder….” In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6) Can you imagine if that same mindset took place today? This was a period when the leadership was void and no one had to give an account to anyone. I would interpret this order today “total Chaos!” This brings us to why we want to let each of you know how much we value having young men and women connected to a ministry on the cutting edge of success; only by the blessings and will of God.
2013 is vastly approaching and it affords us the opportunity to start afresh, being innovative, creative, and yet holding on to the principles and standards of true holiness. One thing we can’t forget is the purpose of why we attend church. Salvation brings true deliverance; and it’s a life changing experience that is compared to no other way of life.
Our desire and goal is to gain more trust and give you more access to doing greater works in the ministry. The cost for that to happen is to see a better spiritual adherence, faithful attendance of your services, loyalty at every cost, respect for one another and understanding the term “humility and servant.” Everything we do for Christ is centered on humility and serving one another in the right spirit, right attitude, and the right approach.
Humility: the quality or condition of being humble; modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance
Servant: a person in the service of another
It has been brought to our attention of the skill-level and desires that some of you have and want to bring forth in the ministry. I am open to hearing and learning just what those skills are and it comes better from you. The remainder of this conversation is now open for you to share any thoughts or positive comments to present at this time; thanks again for attending this session.
