The Source for Youth Ministry

Outreach Event Ideas

NOTE FROM JONATHAN: I think one of the best ways we can point to Christ is through "acts of service." I'm not talking about handing out tracks or "door knocking"... I'm talking about good ol' fashion helping people in need. And if people ask why, we simply answer, "Because that's what Jesus would have done, and we're pretty excited about Jesus."

The youth meet together once a week and they go out and minister to the elderly in our church. They go and visit, clean house or run errands for the elderly. Then, that night at our regular youth meeting, they have a praise night of sharing what they did and how God ministered to them and helped them see things in a different light. On the last week of this program we have a swim party with pizza as a thanks to the students who served.
