As TVC Church, our heart is that each and every person would have the confidence and tools to share the good news of Jesus with those that they meet – no matter what their age.

Through our TVC Church partnership with The Message, we are now into our third year of Advance Youth. TVC Church member Joe Winterschladen leads this group of teens and journeys with them as they take the gospel to the streets and to their schools. So what does it look like?

Throughout the year, our TVC Church teenagers are invited to gather once a month with young people from multiple churches across Teesside – to be equipped and inspired to share the gospel. Then, during the summer, they have the opportunity to join a week of mission. The aim of Advance Youth is to build a movement of bold believers, equipped and empowered to Advance the kingdom of God through the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus.

This is what Joe has to say…

“So encouraging seeing the youth step out in boldness and then themselves being encouraged as they see first hand how God can use them as they partner with the Holy Spirit.”

We just love what God is doing through this next generation of Jesus followers!

Why don’t you join us in thanking God for these young people who are stepping up and stepping out to make Jesus known in Teesside. Why don’t you pray that God would continue to grow their boldness and love of Him?

Do you have Teenagers within your family who would benefit from taking time out, to be equipped to share the gospel with those around them? Why not open up the conversation with them about Advance Youth?
