General Information

Philosophy and Vision

___________

The vision of the Tulsa Bible Church Youth Ministry is to know God and make him known, per the church’s mission statement. We long and pray for our students to know and commune with the Father as their Father, with Jesus as their Savior and friend, and with the Spirit as their helper, as they join themselves to the local church body in membership for their discipleship and sanctification as they see the Day drawing near (Heb. 10:24-25). 

 

The philosophy of ministry that will accompany this vision is Word-centric, meaning that the Word of God takes precedence and all events, administration, and gatherings exist to give the Word its place as the chief means by which we know God as we set Jesus before the students to be changed (2 Peter 1:17-21, 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Hebrews 4:11-13, 2 Cor. 3:18). Paul writes in 1 Cor. 3:10-11 “...Let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” This means that we will organize everything with the express purpose of giving the Word to our students so they might behold Christ.

Weekly Gatherings

___________

Sunday mornings we go through a series based in a book of the Bible. It will be primarily teaching. Wednesday evenings will generally be a biblically-rooted topical series that complements our Sunday morning series. On Wednesdays we fellowship, sing, teach, and then end with small group discussion based on grade/gender.

 

This summer we will spend Sunday mornings in 1 John and Wednesday nights discussing Conversion/Union with Christ.

By the time a student graduates, if they’ve been with us from grades 9-12, then they will have heard every genre of Scripture taught so they’ll have an ability to read the whole Bible, and they will be given tools to deal with cultural issues, to take care of their personal growth in Christ, and to have a firm biblical-theological foundation.

Discipleship, Events, Communication

Life in the Youth

___________

The youth ministry exists to support parents as they disciple their children. The youth pastor and volunteers exist to help parents disciple their children. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Proverbs 22:6 give the parents the primary responsibility of spiritually caring for their children. Parental involvement is essential to the spiritual growth and development of their children. 

All of our events will be designed to foster fellowship and promote a faithful gospel witness that edifies the believers and compels outsiders unto Christ. We have various retreats, conferences, and meetings at members' houses throughout the course of our year. For more information, please feel free to email Bennett Cox at bennettcox@tulsabible.org.

We communicate through monthly newsletters and through Remind. To sign up text alerts, text @a86a4kh to 81010.
