On this page you will find everything you need to know about our Church’s youth group, The Good Soil. We drew from the parable of the sower, found in Luke 8:4-15 for the name and mission of our group. Our desire is to see the students who walk through our door live out their lives as good soil; “As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.” (Luke 8:15). We long to see the students who graduate, leaving rooted and established in the love of Christ (Eph. 3:17) who will then go forth and proclaim that love to others.
My heart’s desire is to see this generation of “youth” on fire for Jesus. I became involved in this youth group through the four-year youth ministry internship through St Clement. I was discipled, trained and mentored by incredible men and women of the Lord into what it meant to run a youth group and be a godly (to the best of my ability) leader. Throughout this process the Lord pressed into my heart a love for the teenagers in this group, a desire to see them grow, be discipled and to spread the Love of Christ. Isaiah 61:1-3 has been near and dear to my heart throughout the past several years; to see chains broken and captives liberated, for crowns of beauty to be placed on the heads of our youth instead of a sack of ashes. Our hope is to seeour students on fire for the Lord, to have a desire to serve those around them, to be an example of God’s Love and proclaim the Gospel.
