Youth Ministry (CHRIST AMBASSADORS )
Assemblies of God, one of the largest Pentecostal movements in the world were formed in United States in 1914. Since the foundation, the AG church acknowledged that the youths have a vital role in the evangelization of the world.
In 1924 Pentecostal Youth for Christ was formed for the harmonization of the different youth ministries. Later it expanded its ministries and changed as Christ Ambassadors. Christ Ambassadors has made enormous contribution towards the evangelization of the world.
Youth and Sunday school ministries were lively from the beginning of the Assemblies of God in Kerala. But the arrival of missionary A. E. Sorbo accelerated the youth ministry and “Christ Ambassadors” gained an organized formation.
In 1951 the District Conference discussed about the significance of the youth ministry and in 1954 Rev. A. E. Sorbo was appointed as the Christ Ambassador’s Counselor. In the same year Pastor M. Johnson was appointed as the President of CA.
“Christ for All and All for Christ” is the theme of this movement. From then on wards the Christ Ambassadors of the Assemblies of God Malayalam District Council has got potential leadership.
Moving towards the current decade, Christ Ambassadors has been cherishing the legacy of historic contributions to the progress of Assemblies of God. This movement has raised many Christian leaders, evangelists and pastors who have played a vital role in the evangelization and mission movements across India and abroad. Christ Ambassadors has initiated many programs for developing the youngsters in churches.
Christ Ambassador’s in AG Church - Kuwait
Christians are God’s ambassadors in that they have been “approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel”. As we go through this world, we represent another Kingdom, and it is our responsibility to reflect the “official position” of heaven. We are in this world, but not of it (John 17:16). God’s ambassadors are to be “as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves” (Matthew 10:16). Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we must take the message of our King to the “ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8), imploring men and women everywhere to be reconciled to God.
From the beginning, Christ Ambassadors has been lively with AG Church – Kuwait with a motto to raise youngsters for evangelization, mission movements & overall spiritual growth. To achieve this goal, Christ Ambassadors conduct different talent programs like Seminars, Speech, Bible quiz, Story Telling ,Bible Reference, Group Songs, outdoor retreat , Kids Programs, Special programs etc. CA has also been active in raising funds for several outreach and charity programs. CA meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of every month between 7:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M at Gilgal Hall, Abassiya.
We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
