At KUMC, we believe that creating Mission Opportunities will help young people grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ and one other. Our youth and youth leaders have served with tornado cleanup and relief at both Henryville, Indiana and Joplin, Missouri.
They have also helped people in Henderson Settlement, Kentucky and did much of the demolition work on what is now The JYC (The Jesus Youth Center).
At KUMC, we believe that giving the youth in our community an opportunity to serve others in mission will give them a solid foundation of service for the rest of their lives. Serving others also allows our youth to better understand our vision of “Loving God, Loving Others, and Serving the World.” By serving in mission to others, our youth can participate directly in the loving grace shared with the world by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
While servng in mission, our youth worship together, learn to work together, expand upon their skill base, and have an opportunity to interact directly with those in our society that find themselves in need.
Mission opportunities teach our youth that there are many people in need of the gifts which our youth have received through God’s Holy Spirit. Our youth learn to put these gifts into action!
