Youth ministry at ECC exists to glorify God by ministering to youth and their families, based on the authority of God’s Word.
We take seriously the commands of Scripture to pass on the Word of God to our children (Deut 6:6–7) and to bring up our children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph 6:4). We understand that the Great Commission (Matt 28:18–20) begins at home. Our foundational assumption is that parents have the primary responsibility for the discipleship of their teenagers.
Thus, we aim to partner with the families of our church for our teens' development of godly character, right doctrine, and a Christian worldview. We do this through regular opportunities for fellowship, teaching, and service.
Our teenagers are every bit a part of Christ's body as the adults of the church. We want to see them integrated into its worship, discipleship, and ministry, so that when they leave our walls they leave not as alumni of a youth program but as followers of Christ linked to the one holy, apostolic, universal Church.
