The Importance of Youth

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
(1 Timothy 4:12, New International Version)

Like any other church, the future of Mt. Wesley Akin Nazarene is in its youth. We are fortunate to be able to celebrate a range of age groups that stretches from infant to near-centurions. As such, our elders strive to impress upon the younger generations the love and value of God in their lives. Meanwhile, the young have their own lessons to teach in their energy and enthusiasm for their Christian mission.
