Intercessory prayer fuels it.

Intercessory prayer is the engine of a Gospel Advancing Ministry. When you lead from your knees, you see teenagers transformed spiritually, and they learn to leverage the same unstoppable prayer power on behalf of their schools, classmates and communities. As a movement we want to partner with ministries through prayer and lead from our knees.

Relational evangelism drives it.

Mobilizing teens to lovingly and intentionally reach other teens with the good news of Jesus is core. Teens who engage in relational evangelism get to witness first-hand the transforming power of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of those they lead to faith in Christ!

As a movement we are engaged in relational evangelism through our partnerships and networks. We are involved in Schools ministry through sports and in social outreach in the Masinenge informal settlement as well as the Nzimakwe region. We are helping and assisting with sports and social outreach through many forms of ministry, from VBS to Basketball and soccer and Dance.

Leaders fully embrace and model it.

Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40). What’s true of a rabbi is true of a youth leader. If you want your students to prioritize relational evangelism, you and your leaders must consistently set the pace personally. We are engaged with youth pastors across the country and seek to help and journey with like minded men and women of God seeking to live out His priorities in their lives as they seek to model their lives as Christ modeled His life among us.

A disciple multiplication strategy guides it.

Jesus took his disciples on a journey into deeper and deeper levels of discipleship. He took them from

Unbeliever → Believer → Worker → Disciple-maker

The same pattern that Jesus followed should be emulated in your group as you disciple your teenagers.

A bold vision focuses it.

Establishing a bold vision for your ministry that can only be accomplished in God’s strength inspires your entire group. It gives everyone something to push for, pray for and praise God for. The biggest, boldest, best vision ever articulated is found in Matthew 28:19-20.

Biblical outcomes measure it.

The New Testament is full of examples of how the early church measured outcomes.When you measure Biblical outcomes, it provides you with a gauge by which you can assess your progress, identify weaknesses, spot opportunities for even more growth (best practices) and praise God for the fruit.

Ongoing programs reflect it.

In youth ministry, we program out our priorities. When evangelism and disciple multiplication are real priorities in your ministry, they are consistently built into your weekly youth group program rundown sheet, and become a focus throughout your annual youth ministry calendar.
