“The STANDARD” desires to lead youth grades 6th – 12th, in an ongoing tangible relationship with God through Christ Jesus that will transition them into adulthood. Using a culture of care, it is our unified hope to achieve this mission through Discipleship, Relationship, Education, Evangelism, and Service to The Community.
WHY ARE WE KNOWN AS “The Standard?”
Our ministry name, “The STANDARD,” is derived from Isaiah 59:19: “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a “STANDARD” against him.”
This name does not suggest that we are The STANDARD. Our youth ministry name, “The STANDARD” is directing attention to the fact that no matter what tricks the enemy tries to pull, “GOD’S STANDARD” is more powerful. This is God’s standard, therefore it’s not “a standard,” it is “The STANDARD!” The ULTIMATE standard that God has lifted up against the enemy is THE SON, JESUS CHRIST!
