After receiving the confirmation of the grant, we had opportunities to grow together as a youth group.  On July 14-15, 2023, we hosted a mini retreat at the church with 16 youth and 3 leaders. We played games and sports, hiked, and had a wonderful time of intentional worship.   Then on July 26-27, we had a second youth retreat at Selkirk Provincial Park with 14 participants. During the retreat,

We purchased a Nintendo switch, controllers, and games that have allowed us to connect with the youth differently than before. The competition that we

In September, we hosted a kickoff event for our youth ministry with 30 teens in attendance. We had bubble tea, worship, games and an intro to our topic next year. God is truly so good and continues to work in the lives of our teens at Glencairn. An anticipated outcome that we are hoping for the youth this year is that they would be more involved in the different ministries of

On September 29, the youth group at Living Water Community Church in Thorold hosted their first kickoff event. Here's what Rylan Kamerman (youth pastor) shared: Our Kickoff was a huge success! We had about 13 youth including 2 new ones. We had pizza, played some games and talked about John 3:16 and I encouraged them that this year I want us to "Think" & "Engage" in our faith. We

Last year, I (Alvin) had a conversation with Ann Rei and Judith Choy from Mississauga Grace Missionary Baptist Church about how they could develop and disciple their youth in light of their current circumstance. A year later, Ann shared this update: We are having Sunday worship in person at AAC (active adult center Mississauga) on Sunday afternoon since April, but still keep kids/youth Bible class on Saturday afternoon in

Mentoring is a vital part of a young Christian’s faith formation. In the past few years, CBOQ Youth has encouraged churches to support mentors, who walk alongside those about to graduate high school. Pickering Community Baptist Church has been guiding and supporting high school graduates in this way for a few years now.  We asked some of their mentors and recent mentees (Grace Wong, Kiya Fu and Jimmy Chao) to share about their experiences. We hope this will encourage

Digital space is reality; it’s not virtual or make-believe.  We hope both webinars continue to be helpful resources for churches to use. We encourage
