The Adenta District Youth Leader of The Church of Pentecost, Elder Charles Chemel Christian, has expressed concern about the low participation of Christian youth in evangelical activities outside the church.
He expressed this concern on May 5, 2023, at the Madina Area Zonal Joint Service held at Adenta Central Auditorium to commemorate this year’s National Youth Week celebration.
Elder Christian highlighted that while attending church is essential to Christian fellowship, it is not the only place where Christians can serve God.
“The ministry of Christ is out there, not just in the church. We come to church to embrace ourselves in fellowship, but the real work happens outside,” he emphasised.
This year’s National Youth Week is themed “Grounded in Christ, Repositioned for Maximum Impact” – Colossians 2:6-7.
He urged young Christians to join evangelism teams at their local churches to enable them to contribute their quota to spreading the gospel of Christ.
He also reminded them that the purpose of evangelism extends beyond winning souls for Christ as it encompasses positively impacting society.
“Many young Christians agree that the church needs to extend its reach beyond its physical walls. It would help if the youth were ready to embrace evangelism and actively contribute to positively impacting society,” he stated.
The district youth leader encouraged young Christians to remain grounded in Christ and position themselves for maximum impact.
He called on church leaders to encourage and support young people willing to serve in the ministry of Christ outside the church, saying, “By working together, Christians can make a significant impact on society and spread the gospel of Christ to all nations.”
