It’s often said that young people are the leaders of tomorrow. But the Bible tells us that we are called to be examples today! Let no one think less of you because of your youth, but be an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity… (1 Timothy 4:12). As believers in Jesus, we are called to be transformed and we are called to live differently from the ways of the world. Why? So that we can draw closer to God, and so that He can use us to make a real difference right here and now in this generation!
We meet monthly so we can grow together. Bible studies, bike rides, movie nights, touch rugby, and the unforgettable summer youth camp… Our youth events are led by the youth team.
I’ve known Jesus since I was a baby and I’ve grown up with this ministry… homegrown is always the best! Now that I’ve finished my studies I work at the Dunwood Oaks offices. Giving everything to serve Jesus is really my heart’s desire and I just can’t imagine doing anything else. I always look forward to meeting a new face so make sure you come say “Hello!”.
As a “Sozo baby” born and bred, Sozo has always been a family to me and a place of refuge where I can get built up. Like the prodigal son I’ve played a part in the world, but I finally came back home to Jesus. A close relationship with God is something that I had hunted and hungered for in all the wrong places, but I always found this connection in pure worship. It was a yearning for this that drew me back. I am so excited to see how God is working right now and to be a part of His plans and purposes for the youth of today.
I’m incredibly blessed to have been born in this ministry after God healed both my parents from a condition called M.E. While growing up at Sozo, I’ve been given a wonderful foundation in the Word of God. Now God is giving me ‘heart’ revelations of these truths so I can start passing them on to others. I have a love of language and reading is my favourite hobby. I’m excited about the opportunity to get ‘stuck in’ with the youth here, and to share my passion for worship and a personal relationship with God.
