A MESSAGE FROM OUR YOUNG ADULT PASTOR

Greetings in the great name of our lord, Jesus Christ!  I am excited that you have chosen to drop in on “The PLUG” Young Adult Ministry!  God is doing some amazing and intentional things with us in the life of Mount Hope Baptist Church.  As you look through all that we have to offer young adults (ages 19 - 35), it is my prayer that your experience is beyond meaningful.

WELCOME TO "THE PLUG"

YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY 

“The PLUG” desires to lead young Adults ages 19 - 35, in an ongoing tangible relationship with God through Christ Jesus that will cultivate their faith in the early stages of adulthood. Using a culture of care, it is our unified hope to achieve this mission through Relationship, Discipleship and Outreach.


WHY ARE WE KNOWN AS “The PLUG?”

A "Plug" in the sense that it is used among many young adults, relates to the ONE PERSON who can hook you up with what you need!  A "Plug" is that ONE person who can get you the exclusive tangible VIP connection, to what everybody else can't seem to obtain on their own.

In John 14:6, Jesus says "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father but by me."  In essence, Jesus is saying "I am the Plug, and no man comes to the Father but by me!"

If you need the exclusive connect to joy, peace, and fulfillment, then go to THE PLUG!  If you need the exclusive connect to your purpose, then go to THE PLUG!  But most of all, if you are in need of salvation, and in need of THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE, then go to THE PLUG!  Jesus, MY PLUG, has everything I need.”


“LET'S GO!”

Time together and building relationships are essential to engaging in healthy ministry.   Quarterly, The PLUG gets together and goes out to fellowship with various fun activities.   Our quarterly “Let’s Go” activities are done outside of the church and range from bowling, to movies, to the beach, to amusement parks to restaurants and more!


“JUST DO IT!”

As Jesus encouraged us to just DO what he did, we are motivated to help in our immediate community as well as our community at large.  Aw we see needs that can be met through missions and outreach, The PLUG organizes ways to assist those in need.   As we engage in this type of practical ministry we are JUST DOING what Jesus did!
