Welcome to the Hopewell FIYAH Youth Ministry!!
Hopewell FIYAH Youth Ministry Mission
Key Scripture: Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. A city on top of a hill can’t be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they put it on top of a lampstand, and it shines on all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father who is in heaven” (CEB)
The Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church FIYAH Youth Ministry seeks to be a true example of Jesus Christ’s love and light in the world. We believe that we are called to prepare youth to become bold witnesses for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God. We equip our students to embrace a life of faith rooted in: (1) coming to a decision to accept Christ and being sure of their salvation; (2) learning how to live a victorious Christian life; (3) developing leadership skills; and ultimately (4) becoming bold effective witnesses for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

“After 36 years in the ministry it is still my honor to serve God’s people. I don’t take that lightly. And should the Lord tarry it will be my honor to serve God and His people for many more years to come as I continue to give God my best self.” –Bishop William L Sheals
