Since 2013 the youth ministry of F.A.R.M. has rapidly evolved to programming that involves more engagement with the community to better reach out to the present day youth. In the church, FARM youth are tagged as `Movers’, when in the community,they make themselves known as XA. Click to go to their FB Page: XAPHM
MOVERS is the name given to the young people in FARM, high school and college students as well as out of school youth from ages 13 to 21.
Being young is a choice time of life because of strength and beauty. “The glory of young men is their strength.” Prov. 20:29
The young are designed by God to be an active force against the works of the devil. I write to you, young men, because you are strong,… and you have overcome the evil one. 1 John 2:14. Strength means zeal, passion, movements! The youth are movers!
WizeUp is the discipleship program of FARM for the youth. The key to the strength and overcoming ability of the youth is when the Word of God lives in them. ‘I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 1John 2:14
The Youth, with its strength has weakness. Youth implies inexperience and immaturity. It is the period in life of testing, refining, and purifying so that one becomes what God wants him to be. “Our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.” Psalm 144:12
The enemy through the culture of sin and lies works to capture the hearts and minds of the youth. He deceives the youth into believing and embracing the artificial, the superficial, the non eternal standards for self worth and life purpose. Further, he disconnects and pulls them away from the very people who can help them. His strategies using media and technology are dynamic, offensive, aggressive, sophisticated, and even extravagant.
There is a pressing need for the youth today to know the Truth, the Biblical core belief system for faith, life and practice. There is a desperate need for the youth today to be connected in healthy relationships with parents, the church and friends. We therefore sound the call to the young – to WizeUp!
RTC’s are bridge events – evangelistic concerts to connect with the youth today. Our church band, the Street Signs Band communicate to the youth that life with Jesus is safe, fun and fulfilling! The Extreme Movers Dancers show that the youth are to be strong and overcoming in the war against the enemy of our souls.
