Welcome to Atlantic Avenue Youth! James 4:7 tells us;
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.”
We have a desire to see teens do just that. We want everyone who is a part of our ministry to experience God in a very real way, wherever they are in their journey. We want teens to see that they can truly surrender their lives to God, grow in Him in a practical way, build great Christian relationships, and have a blast in the process! This page is still under development, but please come back soon! Our hope is that this will be a place where you can come to learn what makes Surrendered Ministries tick and see how God is working in the lives of teens in our ministry. Like any youth ministry, there are areas where we are continually seeking God for ways to improve, but we trust that God is doing some amazing things in the lives of young people and adults alike. Whether you are a teen, parent, potential volunteer, or just curious, we hope that this site will help you to see the great work God wants to do in the lives of young people at Atlantic Avenue.
To be a center for teens to find Christ, develop their Christian life, and experience Him in everyday living.
Atlantic Avenue Youth exists to supplement the family in seeing every student become a fully surrendered follower of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:19 & 20
Our Ministry Model
Surrendered Ministries’ hope is to not only see teens come to know Christ, but for them to thrive in that relationship. We want to see teens continuously challenged to take the next step in their walk with God. As a result, we have developed a ministry model that reaches five different audiences of students. These five audiences are the community, crowd, growing, committed, and core. In each of these audiences we focus on a specific purpose to help teens begin or continue growing in Christ. As teens grow and become more familiar with the ministry, they are encouraged by peers, adults, and transition events to take that next step. Below you will see a more in-depth look at how it all works together.
THE COMMUNITY are the teens we see within the influential reach of our ministry. These are teens that we see at sporting events, restaurants, and randomly at our activities. Our desire is to REVEAL Jesus to these students in a very relevant way through relationship and presenting the gospel.
THE CROWD is made up of teens who have been attending on a somewhat regular basis. These are teens who are new Christians or at least seeking answers. Our goal is to continue to show the love of Christ to them by CONNECTING them with other Christians.
THE GROWING are Christian teens who have a desire to learn what walking in their faith is all about. We want to EQUIP these teens with spiritual disciplines in a way that helps them passionately follow God.
THE COMMITTED are growing teens who want to HONOR God in all they do. Our hope is to show these teens how to worship God with their lives so they reflect Him in all they do.
THE CORE is made up of teens who are living with passionate faith. We want to see these teens EXPRESS that faith in leadership using the gifts God has given them. This group is designed for student leaders who show true spiritual maturity.
