Growing Youth

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these . . . and He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them."
Mark 10:14b, 16

Bright Hope is committed to ensuring today’s children and youth grow into tomorrow’s Christian leaders. It is our goal to train our children to walk in truth and obedience to God, to teach them to worship and honor Christ in all aspects of their lives and for them to demonstrate a willingness and an attitude for work in the ministry of Christ.  
We recognize that worship is the highest service we can give to God and our youth learn early that God is deserving of the highest praise. Our various ministries and youth-related activities aim to develop the whole child by responding to the spiritual, educational, social, emotional and physical needs of our developing children and teens. As such, we seek to provide fun programs, activities and events that will allow them to express their faith through their own words and actions.  We encourage them to use their individual talents in programs and ministries that interest them in order to nurture their growth as people of faith and citizens of this local, national and global community.
