Summertime is often a challenging season for teenagers and young people because summer breaks take them out of their daily routine and leave them with a lot of free time. Not having something constructive to do and without any direction, this free time can often do more harm than good.
Feeling responsibility for our young people, we created Summer for God, a creative discipleship program that caters to their needs, providing them with a structure to keep their focus on the things of God. The vision behind this program was to create an enriching environment where young people can both learn and grow in the Lord, as well as continue serving and being a blessing to their community.
Our goal was to equip them with the necessary tools to grow into Yeshua’s likeness and develop His character. Being His disciples means having His heart for the people, above all things. Summer for God Youth Discipleship Program prepares young people’s hearts as they become young adults, because that’s when their lives will truly impact their society and their world.
Every morning starts with prayer, worship, and bible study, followed by a day of well-planned activities designed to teach them more about Yeshua and become part of something greater than themselves.
Our young people got to experience the Word of God in a rich and profound way through weekly bible tours across Israel, visiting historical sites where Yeshua did His miracles, where prophets proclaimed God’s promises over this Land, and where the apostles preached the gospel.
It was also important to us that they learn the value and magnitude of being a blessing to others. We did this by getting them involved in actively helping with our humanitarian projects; anything from unloading trucks, unpacking goods, assembling food packets, cleaning, serving – everything that goes into our humanitarian work.
This year’s program was rich, deep, profound, significant and impactful. Our youth finished it empowered, transformed and motivated to advance Yeshua’s Kingdom in Israel as never before.
Now is the time to invest in our young people who will carry the torch of Israel’s revival. We need to ensure they are equipped and ready for what is coming. It’s a future worth investing in!
