3. Spiritual Milk to Spiritual Feast

Every student from the time they enter our youth ministry, must leave as a 12th grader with essential doctrines and teachings in place. Our commitment as a church, Pastor and as Adult Leaders is to help disciple and teach the commands and doctrines of Scripture.

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
