The youth wing of the Church, officially referred to as ‘Dunamis Manchester Youth’, is composed of young adults between the ages of 15 and 24. Currently, the Youth Department meets for Sunday Church Services at least twice a month where messages delivered are centred on their peculiar needs and specific issues affecting their spiritual growth as young adults. Besides the Sunday Church Services, the youths also meet online once a month for discussion of topical issues that directly affect their academic development, moral uprightness, spiritual growth, Godly relationships and preparation for marriage among others.
Essentially, the youths are equipped to remain relevant to their call and ordination in the Lord despite the perverse nature of our generation. As Children of God in the 21st century, faced with all forms of challenges in this present age even from the enemy, they are always taught to have faith in the Lord at all times, remain holy and strive to achieve their destinies by the help of the Holy Spirit.
Beyond biblical lessons learnt during the regular meetings, the spirit of dedication in spreading the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is also inculcated in the youths through evangelistic outreach programmes to other Dunamis locations in the North West Region. The Youth Department also has a vibrant youth choir that ministers songs during church services and on special occasions. New members are always invited to join the choir. There is also a Drama Unit in the Department dedicated for the production of short films with lessons coined from the teachings and parables of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Bible.
Competitive programmes in biblical quiz and scripture recitations are also organised periodically for the youths where the winners are awarded.
Spirit-led innovative programmes are currently being adopted to create more avenues for the youths to serve God in holiness and purity. It is our fervent prayer that our children, especially the youths, will always be taught of the Lord and great shall be their peace in Jesus name.
