Life on Life Discipleship
Outside of programs and events we walk and live life alongside our youth in discipleship. This happens in two ways, one is by going into their community to be a part of their world, and the second is by adventuring out of their community together.
Weekly Outreach and safe community
The vision for every Tuesday night is to amplify the voice of God into the lives of young people. We hope to accomplish this by creating a culture where youth are known, loved, free to be themselves, and encouraged that they have a voice.
Every Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 pm we come together for Amplify. Throughout the night we engage middle and high schoolers through art, games, sports, dinner, worship, a gospel message, and small groups. All of this is a base for beginning deeper relationships with young people. Through relevantly engaging them with the Gospel, we hope to see walls crumble and for their hearts to open up to us and to Christ's love.
launching youth through holistic discipleship
Launch is an opportunity for holistic discipleship with a smaller group of youth who come to Amplify. The heart of Launch is to see Johnson City urban youth launched into God's calling for their lives through providing opportunities for them to explore their interests, strengths, and passions.
Launch takes place after-school, Monday-Thursday with a group of 15-20 youth. The program focuses on helping youth create a realistic vision for the life, develop healthy community, and live a balanced life. Weekly, youth take life skills classes, explore new hobbies, meet one-on-one with personal coaches, find passions, learn about their strengths, create a life plan, set goals, worship, pray, study the Bible, and have fun in a safe and productive environment. All this is in hope that each youth comes to know Christ and what it means to live life in full now and in their future.
