Welcome to Youth Ministries

The Youth Ministries Division [YMD] is a division of the Youth & Student Ministries Department, working with the youths in focus under the auspices of the Nigerian Baptist Convention. The youth fellowship is unique in her composition. It is a fellowship of students, admission seekers, job seekers, the employed, the singles and the married. The youth ministries division is a specialized ministry that has these groups in focus; designing programmes that address the teeming needs of the members of the group.

A RESUMÉ OF BAPTIST YOUTH MINISTRIES IN NIGERIA

The Youth Ministries in Nigeria was inaugurated in Iwo, on 2nd August, 1973. This was the result of the efforts of some concerned persons like Rev. Emmanuel Akingbala, Dr. E.A. Dahunsi, Oba Samuel Abimbola II [Oluwo of Iwo], Bro. Noah Iyanda and Late Dr. T.A. Ayorinde, who preached at the inaugural ceremony. His message was concluded with these statements: ‘’Let us always remember that ours is not supposed to be a pressure group. Neither is the organization to become a society of those who think they know all that there is to be known. Rather, the Convention expects her youth to participate fully in a constructive way. Thus, we expect cooperation with the Convention to the best of your ability.’’ Six conferences were represented and 241 youth delegates participated at the inaugural ceremony.

The objectives at the inauguration were threefold:

  • To help the Baptist youth to recognize their individual opportunities and responsibilities in the church worldwide mission
  • To inspire Baptist youths to commit their lives to continuing Christian witness
  • To provide opportunity for Baptist youths to know one another better and thus work co-operatively to fulfill the Great Commission.

VISION
To reach all youths for Christ, and position them for effective living and service that reflects the glory of God.

YOUTH MINISTRIES OBJECTIVES

The constitutional objectives of the Nigerian Baptist Convention Youth Conference (NBCYC) are:

  • To cooperate with the Nigerian Baptist Convention in emphasizing its declared principles among youths;
  • To take the whole gospel of Jesus to all who do not know it or have not received it, wherever opportunity may be found.
  • To encourage and assist in the building and maintenance of Baptist Youth Centres.
  • To afford a united action concerning matters affecting the welfare of youth fellowships in the Convention and to cultivate fellowship by such other means as the conference may adopt.
  • To invest in any financial undertaking that is for the propagation of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • To prepare the youths as a formidable force to take over the mantle of leadership for the next generation.

YOUTH MINISTRIES’ RELATIONSHIP TO THE CHURCH

The focus of the Youth Ministries Division’s relationship with the church is partnership for church empowerment. This is founded on the understanding of youths’ position in the church as leaders of today and tomorrow. We enable youths to discover themselves within their different settings outside the church. Through self discoveries series, leadership development, mission and evangelism, financial empowerment principles, orientations that lead to excellence in every endeavour of life and other trainings, they are positioned to serve in the different capacities they are gifted in, especially as their giftedness finds outlets in fruitful service to the glory of God. The church is conceived as a test ground for the deposits of God in the believer’s life. With the appropriate motivation, it is expected that the youths would perform.

MODE OF OPERATION

  • Organizing conferences;
  • Discovery and positioning of gifts for service;
  • Working at the sidelines of the church to assist the church ministries with the youths;
  • Organizing annual conferences for leadership development and empowerment;
  • Providing motivations for the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
