The UNDERGROUND Youth Program

Vision:
The Underground is a youth ministry that utilizes a Christ-centered approach to help people develop Spiritually, Intellectually, Emotionally, Relationally, and Physically to the end that we become productive in our society and in the Kingdom of God.

In short we are:Wholly Developing, Holy Youth

Values:
Respect, Commitment, Honesty, Integrity, Growth

Model:
1 Thess 5:23

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ

The Greek word for soul in Scripture is psuchee’. It is the word from which we get the word psychology. It refers to a persons personality; their ability to think, feel, make decisions and have relationships. This verse then, talks about God being able to sanctify, or make distinguished, our Spiritual nature, our Intellectual nature, our Emotional nature, our Social nature and our Physical nature. To this end the Underground exists to work with individuals to develop:

1. Spiritually
2. Intellectually
3. Emotionally
4. Socially
5. Physically

Goals:
It is our desire at the Underground to make sure that when we work with kids that we do so in a complete manner, but also that we do so in a way that impacts other around them positively.

We have chosen this verse as a standard for our youth:
1 Tim 4:12

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

We expect the youth to set good examples in:
• Speech (how they speak – Intellectual Growth)
• Life (how they treat others – Relational Growth)
• Love (how they respond emotionally – Emotional Growth)
• Faith (how they respond to God – Spiritual Growth)
• Purity (how they treat their bodies – Physical Growth)

THE UNDERGROUND RULES:
RESPECT GOD
RESPECT OTHERS
RESPECT MYSELF


  The Underground Creed

The vision is JESUS:
obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus.
The vision is an army of young people who will lay down their life for the cause a million times a day.

This is the sound of the underground,
history in the making,
foundations shaking,
Conspiracy breathing...
This is the sound of the underground

And our army is disciplined
Whatever it takes we will give.
Whatever it costs we will live.

The advertisers cannot mold us.
Hollywood cannot hold us
Peer-pressure is powerless to shake our resolve at late night parties.
We pray as if it all depends on God.
We live as if it all depends on us.

Our DNA chooses JESUS because…

Our JESUS is the original dreamer, the dangerous assassin of sin, the ultimate winner!
