YOUTH MINISTRY

Hi, I am Calvin Benson and I am actively involved in the youth ministry at Blessed Hope, Full Gospel Church of God in SA, Steenberg, Cape Town.

The folk who assist me in the youth ministry are Pastor Dominique Swartz (Youth Pastor) and Deidre Scholtz (Assistant youth leader). I have been the youth leader for the last two years and I am grateful to God for the opportunity he has given me with this task at hand.

We are a very young youth group which consists of about 35-45 young people. All of these young people are still at high school and the age group varies from 14 up until 18 years of age.

We have youth every Friday which starts at 19h30. If you are in the neighbourhood come and pop in and join as we fellowship and lift up the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

It is a difficult time in which all young people find themselves under tremendous pressure from their peers, school, parents and even society. Because of these external factors it is important that we need to equip our young people with the necessary tools on how to deal with these different circumstances they find themselves in. Our vision is that young people should be united in Christ. In doing this we would break cultural barriers that society has put in place. It is also important that young people should learn who they truly are as a person and more importantly who they are in God. These are just a couple of the issues that we take up with the young people every Friday.

I believe that young Christians not just here but all over Cape Town are taking up a stand in being bold for God. I believe that the time has come for young people to arise and take a stand for God at schools, in their families and even in society. I believe that God is about to do something great in their lives and I am definitely hanging in there to see what God has in store. It’s a difficult time to be involved in the youth ministry but at the same time it is an exciting time

…THE BEST IS YET TO COME
