The National Network of Youth Ministries links youth workers for encouragement, spiritual growth, and sharing resources in order to expose every teenager to the gospel of Jesus Christ, establish those who respond in a local church, and disciple them to help reach the world.
"Constrained by the love of Christ," motivated by a love for young people, and empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit, I hereby enter into a covenant with God and with my co-laborers in youth ministry. I claim by faith that my life will be characterized by:
PERSONAL HOLINESS before God and others, which is established in Christ and expressed in daily life through prayer and commitment to the Word of God.
AN EXEMPLARY HOME LIFE that is a source of renewal for me and my family, and a godly model for others to follow.
A LIFE OF DISCIPLESHIP which is reproducing an on-going chain of maturing believers.
INVOLVEMENT IN EVANGELISM which helps expose every teenager to the gospel in a personal and culturally relevant way.
A WILLINGNESS TO MINISTER TO YOUTH FOR A LIFETIME, should God so direct.
A MINISTRY WHICH BECOMES A RESOURCE to other churches and organizations, cooperating for greater effectiveness in ministering to teenagers.
I solemnly establish this covenant on this 21st day
of May in the year 2013.
