YOUTH DEACONS:

Good News!  Jonathan DellaSantina is one of our two youth deacons and we are looking for one more student to work alongside the Deacons to promote local service opportunities to the youth group.  This is a great way to serve God’s Kingdom and gain leadership experience -- plus it looks great on a resume.  Sound interesting?  Click HERE

 

20/20 VISION ANNOUNCEMENT – MVC Youth Group New Name… RISE

After much prayer, discernment, and conversation, we are excited to be renaming the youth program at MVC (formerly known as MVC Youth) RISE

 

RISE is acronym that promotes the vision we hope to pursue and embody as a Christ centered community of students, parents, small group leaders, and staff: 

    • We are rooted in being Relational.
    • We work towards Intentionality.
    • We seek to be Servant Minded.
    • We foster a culture of Encouragement. 

Why Rise? - Aside from being a nifty acronym and logo, we believe that the verb “Rise” effectively communicates who we are. Yes, we are all about having fun, engaging in meaningful conversations, and serving both locally and abroad as a group of youth. Yet our identity is, first and foremost, a community that has been loved by God the Father, purchased by the blood of his Son Jesus, and brought back to life by the power of the Holy Spirit. We, as a staff, felt that the name “MVC Youth Ministry,” while useful in conveying who we minister too, lacked the purposeful “why” behind all that we say and do. By comparison, the name RISE allows us to express both our identity and values in one word:

We call ourselves Rise because it affirms the Gospel truth that we have been raised with Christ. (Rom 6:4).

We promote the core value of Rise, because as risen people we are to “set our hearts on the things above” (Col 3:1).

Towards this end, we are rooted in being relational, work towards intentionality, seek to be servant minded, and we foster a culture of encouragement.
