Our mission is to facilitate a space that fosters healing and edifies believers leading people to “own” their faith, living out what they say they believe. We want to equip a generation leading, teaching, and inspiring them to be culture changers. I hope is that they will become disciples who make disciples investing in others as Paul would charge Timothy to do in 2 Timothy 2:2.
WE ARE an independent, non-denominational Christian ministry.
WHY OWN YOUR FAITH?
What does it mean to own your faith?
Many teenagers have grown up with mom and/or dad giving them no other choice except attending Sunday church services and sometimes weekday youth group meetings. Often times these teenagers grow into adults who resented being “forced” to go to church. Although researchers say as much as eighty-five percent walk away from the church and faith upon graduating high school, many tend to still consider themselves Christians even if they aren’t living out their Christian faith.
Those who continue to attend church will have their faith challenged by professors in universities across the country, unbelieving family and friends, the media and their own doubts. What we’ve found out is that many people only believe because their parents or grandparents had faith and that’s all that they were exposed to. They were pushed to attend events, but few were mentored to invest in their faith or given permission to investigate their faith in order to silence their own doubts and the voices of skeptics.
To "own your faith" means to invest, investigate, learn, and practice biblical teachings on your own. It means to follow Christ because you believe, not just because it was what you were told by others. AT OYF we hope to model those who are on the journey of owning our faith, growing, and experiencing God as God is revealed to us.
