Growing Young Adults

Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word,
in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
I Timothy 4:12

There are over 50 million people between the ages of 18 - 35 in the United States, which represents a huge young adult population. Young Adults are energetic, creative and passionate. The vision for the Young Adult Ministry at Bright Hope Baptist Church, is to help spiritually equip and minister to the needs of the church's young adult population.  
We encourage Young Adults to utilize their gifts for the benefit of others and within the purposes and plans of God. Our goal is to empower Young Adults while offering dynamic opportunities for ministry, service, personal and professional growth. In addition, we aim to help them connect and form Godly bonds with other Young Adults.
We endeavor to stir up the spiritual hunger for God that releases their divine potential.
