Nazarene Youth International


Mission Statement:

Our mission is to lead this generation of students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ that is marked by strong sound biblical understanding, opportunities to be Jesus’ hands and feet to others in need, and share the love of Jesus with everyone they come in contact with. We believe God’s call to ‘Go and make Disciples’ is essential to our ministry and whatever we do is marked by this desire to help students walk a life of obedience and faith to be the best witnesses for Christ they can be.

Activities/Bible Study opportunities:

Nazarene Youth Bible Quizzing Ministries: "Guiding our youth into God's Word and The Word into their lives."

  • Do you think you have what it takes to master sections of Scripture? To not only be quick with answers but to also compete among other talented youth groups? If you’re ready to commit to challenging yourself to be a resident expert on books and passages of Scripture and compete with the best of them, contact Ms. Elizabeth Smith.
