IF YOU HAVE A MINISTRY OF SENDING CHICK (GOSPEL) PUBLICATIONS to database names, let Pastor Rick or Roger Meir know as we should consult on a couple of items.


• Lead and teach discipleship Bible studies for the purpose of raising up leaders in this generation.

• Plan and pull off outreach activities (socials) and mission/work/service opportunities for young adults.

• Connect and disciple young adults by attending Revolution at Alliance Friends Church, and other young adult and college age gatherings like Campus Crusade for Christ, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and University of Mt Union which are deemed strategic to make the most vital connections possible for discipling within the framework of a 15-hour work week.

• Work with Adult Discipleship Pastor to build relationships with young adults and make disciples.

• Report to Adult Discipleship Pastor and Christian Education Elder upon request.
