Youth speak out about the challenges of faith, life and destiny

ICHC is responding to a cultural change. We feel called anew through a collaborative effort with other organizations of like mind and spirit, to connect with, reach and walk with the Now-Generation of youth in such a way that they can come into an awareness and experience of their Sovereign purpose in God through Jesus Christ, and to have a relevant Kingdom impact on the world in their generation. God's plan is always to raise up a new generation of world changers that lifts up their voice to represent Him. A cultural shift has occurred. The youth and the church are in two different places.

Our focus is to bridge the gap. We have not passed this way before ... Joshua 3:4 AMP

Protestant churches are losing young adults in "sobering" numbers, a survey finds. Seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30 — both evangelical and mainline — who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23.

This "Intercepting Youth Faith Flight" presentation was developed by ICHC for use by Pastors and Youth Leaders. It highlights this problem and suggests ways to address the situation.

ICHC "NOW" Generation Connection (INGC)

What is it?

  • INGC is a ministry that focuses on raising up dynamic Youth Leaders

Who sponsors it?
International Senior Pastors — Visionary and Revelatory

  • Connecting to empower Youth Leaders
  • Inspiring them to fulfill their maximum potential

How?

  • Senior Pastors releasing Youth Leaders to collaborate with like ministers
  • To build camaraderie and share successes and challenges, i.e. wisdom and understanding gleaned through experiences in their local ministries

Why?

  • Assisting Youth Ministries toward a common Kingdom goal — souls
  • Beneficial to help strengthen/increase generational participation and motivation
  • Encouraged to engage in the non-violent movement — with courage, conviction — undergirding the biblical and spiritual principles of AGAPE love, unity, forgiveness, humility, perseverance and sacrifice

When do we connect?

  • Annual conversation every February
  • Annual Harvest Festival every third Saturday in October
  • Youth Leaders Conference Call -- TBA
  • On Martin Luther King (MLK) Supreme Day of Prayer, the fourth Saturday in August, INGC emulates, through their involvement, the same Spirit of a Champion that the youth demonstrated during the MLK Era. The NOW Generation Connection is reminded of the courage, commitment, discipline, teachableness through decrees, songs and enactments of the era.

Looking Forward, what are the Goals?

  • Emulating Nehemiah's wall — each servicing at their home gate ... however committed to the building of the wall — meaning ... reaching ALL of their generation
  • Spiritual Re-charge — strengthening one another's weaknesses ... receiving their strengths
  • Establish trust in one another ... to be transparent ... discover and apply biblical truths
