A vibrant active youth department is an integral part of the Fellowship. The youth are encouraged to express their love for God in ways that appeal to their age group. Some of the events hosted by the youth department include an annual conference, various seminars, musical concerts and dance events.
All young people are encouraged to participate in the various events. A buddy/mentor system operates as required by the youths to provide support as and when needed.
My role is to help plan and oversee the program and activities for young children and adolescents, working as part of a team with youth leaders and the youth council to guide and motivate children and young people up to the age of 25 years old through their faith journey.
What I enjoy most about my role is to interact with the youths and to see them growing without fear of who they are in Christ, growing with confidence.

Favourite scripture John 16: 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Louise Douglas is the Youth Leader of Joshua Generation, she passionate about helping young people to develop within their walk with Christ as well as in their social and educational life.
She enjoys getting to know about the young people’s different gifts and talents by putting on different events within the church and encouraging them to use their gifts in the youth services and having activities outdoors.
A scripture that she believes has helped her with her role and is one of her favourites is 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
She would hope to instil this scripture within the young people’s life by helping them to be fearless in the Lord and getting them to strive to do their best within the community, education and the church.
