Youth Development Momentum Program
What is Momentum?
Momentum is a sub-group of Aevidum (a high school club), designed to allow students to come together to find creative ways to address (some, if not all) 23 difficult issues teens are dealing with. Students will meet together to discuss ways to bring awareness to these issues at school and church youth groups.
Why do we need Momentum?
There is a group of students that have a lot of passion to reach out to their fellow classmates who are hurting. These students need a way to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to make a difference in their school and church. Also, for the most part, the church has turned a blind eye and doesn’t want to recognize the issues causing depression and suicide. Momentum will be that vehicle to equip and empower young people to speak out about issues that are directly affecting their lives.
What Bible verse do we use as our Mission Statement?
Ezra 5:11 We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago…
