Our young people today are caught in a cross-fire of ideas, one strong voice says war is wrong, another demands that they be patriotic.Teenage friends tell them to try drugs, parents and teachers plead with them not to try. Certain voices insist, any sex is moral if it does not hurt the people involved, other voices strongly support morality based on the Holy Scriptures.
Our young people are forced to make decisions at an age when they are most susceptible to suggestion good and bad. Today, many conclude that life has no meaning. Others drift without purpose, never thinking it all through. Still others respond to a message of hope.
Who cares? Who reaches out to young people with hope and a reason for living? HEADWATERS CHRISTIAN YOUTH is an organization devoted to communicating with high school and junior high school young people. It is an organization equipped with a program for youth, enabling them to develop in all four dimensions of life, physical, mental, social, and spiritual. Involved teenagers in the program find it useful in finding themselves, resulting in a life of purpose instead of a continual search which may result in dropping out of high school, turning to alcohol, becoming involved in drugs, etc.
HEADWATERS CHRISTIAN YOUTH is a mission effort in respect to unchurched teens in an area in which no mission effort is being put forth. Our programs will help those teens who never enter a church to find a life in Christ which holds real exercise and share their own faith with their unsaved friends.
The problems and difficulties of teenagers today often leave parents, teachers, and other concerned individuals in a state of bewilderment.It is true that the process of growing up into a mature Christian and conscientious citizen is harder today than ever before. But the staff of HEADWATERS CHRISTIAN YOUTH is dedicated to helping teens through this difficult time and leading them on to a life which will honor and glorify God.
All good things are not cheap. However, if concerned people of this area will band together in this effort, we can provide a worthwhile youth program for all the teens of the Headwaters area.
