Soma Youth Ministry exists to make disciples through sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Simply put, our goal is for students to meet Jesus, mature in Jesus, enjoy Jesus, and share Jesus.
How do we do this?
First of all...
- We believe the parents are primary disciplers of their children. One of the Scriptures that supports this belief is found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9:
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
We also see this all throughout Scripture in verses such as Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 78:4, and Proverbs 22:6.
- We believe the church exists to equip parents to be effective disciplers.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, -Ephesians 4:11-12
We do this through:
- Missional Community involvement
Sunday Morning Worship
Leading Parenting Workshops
Producing parenting resources
- We believe the church should come alongside parents to help make disciples of students
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”- Matthew 28:18-20
- Missional Community
1on1 mentoring and/or discipleship
