“Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers and example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 1 Tim 4:12
The name Maranatha refers to the fervent hope and expectation that Jesus Christ, our Savior, is coming back soon to take us in his presence. Nonetheless, while we wait for his coming, we must work in his field here on earth. Jesus came once to offer Himself as a living sacrifice for our sins, and left us a mission: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and teaching them to obey my law. I am with you always, to the very end of times”. Mat 28:19-20
The United Youth Association, MCG strives to make a difference in the community by preaching, teaching leading and living the Christian life in a way to excite and inspire other young people. As faithful followers of Christ our goal is to provide a supportive and loving environment where youths may develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. It is our desire to see them become true disciples of Christ and truly represent the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
- To develop spiritually by facilitating the means of prayer, Bible study, and evangelism.
- To develop socially by challenging our young people to participate in debates and spirited discussions
- To develop our fellowship with other young people and engage in meaningful discussion with non-believers.
- Develop different talents by integrating our youth into the life of the church body, to prepare them to become the leaders of tomorrow.
