Momentum 517 Student Ministry
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come, The old has gone, the new is here!"
- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Hearts of Love does not just have a student ministry. We believe we are a student ministry! We use a powerful 3-Part "DFT" System that helps equip and train students. This system helps ensure that our students grow in Christ and as they mature they deepen their relationship with Christ!
Discipleship - Every student is assigned a leader from our 517 Leadership Team. These leaders are passionate pursuers of Christ that desire to see Jesus be the ruler of the students lives. These leaders take time every week to contact the student and talk to them about their lives. They speak the Word of God into them and help guide them towards their life with Christ! In addition to that they spend time with them praying and often times fellowshipping with other leaders and students.
Fellowship - Students are encouraged to fellowship outside the church together. They are encouraged to go out and grow their relationship with each other so that they can be more of an impact in their schools, neighborhoods and workplaces for the Kingdom of God! These times of fellowship help strengthen the students and hold them tightly together and help during times of struggle.
Training - All student are encouraged to get involved in ministry somewhere at Hearts of Love Ministry. We are not satisfied with students merely being "youth". We want to see our students active in various parts of the ministry. After a student has showed a commitment to their walk with Christ, and the church body, we immedately start looking for ministries to train and equip them for. We have students serving in many aspects of the ministry right now including Worship, Media, Sound, Broadcast and 517 Clubs.
Every Wednesday at 6:30 we open the doors of the sanctuary for our Momentum 517 Services. This is a time of fellowship and fun. At 7:00 students ranging in ages from 12-21 enter into a time of worship and teaching of the Word! These messages are powerful and relative to the students!
Different schools throughout the Pensacola area have 517 clubs in them. These clubs are ran by Pastor Brad and different student leaders. These clubs give us an opportunity to go into the schools and speak into the lives of any young person who desires to come hear the Gospel! If your school doesn't have a club ask your teacher, counselor, or principal how you can have us come and start a 517 Club at your school!
"Young people today aren't looking for religion. They are looking for something real. Nothing has brought me greater joy and fulfillment in ministry then to help raise up young people to be powerful ministers of the Gospel! After years in Student Ministry I have been a part of many lives and watched many grow to be passionate pursuers of Christ! To watch them love God, love their families and love the Presence of the Holy Spirit is what makes this ministry continue to grow!"
