We are told by the disciple Matthew that Jesus, “grew in wisdom (intellectual and emotional maturity) and stature (physical maturity), in favour with God (spiritual maturity) and man (social maturity).” So it is that the Youth Ministries Department of the Ontario Conference seeks, in these four areas, to support and assist youth leaders, parents and pastors, in declaring God’s power in the lives of the next generation of disciples. (Psalm 71:16 -18)
