The Youth Network
The Leadership Project
We, at the Youth Network, believe in recognizing and releasing students to lead in the Church, the Youth Network, and in their context. We also believe that God has gifted students with amazing passions, strengths and abilities in leadership. We hope to identify those God-given gifts, teach students how to use them, and create opportunities for them to function in them.
The Leadership Project is a program that focuses on discipleship, as well as practical training in how to lead in whatever context they choose (worship, Youth, Church, etc.). This is done through a few different streams:
The Learning Project
The Learning Project is a series of mini discipleship classes (1, 3, 5 weeks long) that will help students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of their faith as well as help them navigate the demands of everyday life. Some of the topics we will be covering are: Legends of the Bible, Holy Spirit, Salvation, How to Share Your Faith, Preparing for the Real World etc. We are aiming to launch our first couple of classes in January, so stay tuned!
The Worship Project
The Worship Project is a space for students to explore what it means to lead in worship. This includes learning to play the music, but more than that, it's learning what it means to worship our God with sincerity, while leading others to do the same. Students will have the opportunity to be mentored by some of Living Waters more seasoned worship leaders and band members. The Worship Project meets every second Tuesday night from 5PM-6:30PM beginning September 19. Dinner is included.
If you have any questions, contact Nicholas.
The Service Project
The Service Project is an intiative that gives students a chance to put their faith in action in the form of service. We have many opportunities to serve our church community as well as our greater community of Langley and abroad.
If you have any questions, contact Courtney.
