We believe at AMPED that our main purpose is to first connect youth to one another and spiritually mature adults to be able to foster an encounter with the triune God that leads to a life long relationship with Him. Second it is to support parents as they seek (or not seek) to raise their youth up into that lifelong relationship with Him.
At AMPED we have two core verses that we believe are the heartbeat of our ministry.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you. And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
1 Corinthians 11:1
“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”
We believe at AMPED that our youth are called to an extreme way of living. Responding to Jesus’ calling of “follow me” with radical love, generosity, service and discipleship. We believe in risking security and convenience living in this way and we want to teach and equip our teens to be extreme disciples of Jesus Christ. The way that we live every day matters because the way that we live is how God’s Kingdom is realized here on Earth.
