Since much of the population are considered "youth" it's essential to have an intentional and
effective youth ministry. Not only are we bringing them the Good News of Christ, but in
turn we're shaping the future leaders of the nation. To do this successfully, we take a
multi-directional approach. This is why we have ministries within school and church settings
but also on the streets and in the villages themselves.
** CRISIS COMING SOON **
According to the census, over 92% of the population consider themselves "Christian"...
However,this statistic is very misleading. First off, only adults fill out census forms.
Therefore, since youth make up a HUGE segment of society, this statistic doesn't accurately
reflect the population. Secondly, we've found that most youth don't know basic Bible stories--
nevertheless surrendered their lives to Christ. The spiritual lineage we've found most common
is that Grandma had a genuine faith, Mom acknowledges God because Grandma did, but the kids
are completely lost. This means that even though statistics show "92%" of the island as Christian,
we're actually only one generation away from Grenada being a completely godless nation.
Half the households in Grenada are single parent homes. In fact, many Grenadians consider their
country to be a "fatherless society". That said, it's particularly hard for them to relate to God
as their dad. They understand His role as a creator but have difficulty relating to Him as a close
loving provider that wants to have a personal relationship with them..
Many Grenadians live in extreme poverty. A large aspect of us "being Christ-like" is
helping those around us meet their basic needs in life. However, we want to be a
blessing to our community without creating a culture of dependence.
Grenada is a world leader for all the wrong reasons: Alcohol Consumption, Poverty,
Sex Assault, etc... Though statistics and rankings change over time, the people those
numbers represented remain. Our desire is for Grenadians to have a true and
meaningful relationship with their Dad in Heaven. A relationship that results in
freedom and healing from the effects of these dreadful experiences.
|What an honor that God's chosen us to be His world-changers!
Our prayers usher in His will, on earth as it is in Heaven.
When we don't pray, we allow darkness to have it's way.
