The Youth are a vital part of the Kingdom of God.The Venture provides many opportunities for young people to connect throughout the year in activities such as parties, a variety of trips and much more. We invite you to come and join this Venture with God and other students that have a passion to live for Him.
The youth ministry seeks to work with young people ages 12-35, teaching the gospel message of Jesus Christ and Biblical life principles. Our venture service takes place on the last Friday of every month. We also have Youth Activities throughout the month which consist of : Fun Nights, prayer meetings, Youth Rallies where we meet with the youth of other churches, and more.
Like Sunday School the Youth ministry is meant to work in unity with parenting, as a supplement, in teaching wholesome doctrine to Young People at their level of understanding.
(Prov 22:6 KJV) Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Bible Quizzing is a ministry to get our children and youth into the Word of God and His Word into them. Paul instructed Timothy to, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15). We recognize that this endeavor will not happen accidentally or even naturally, but requires significant study and hard work just as it did for Timothy.
First United Pentecostal Church of DeQuincy Teams have consistently placed in their state finals with Buddy Windham as their head coach.We have Beginner, Junior, Senior, and Experienced teams. Buddy Windham & his wife Jessica Windham are committed to making sure that our teams not only have fun hiding the word of God in their hearts but also apply the word to their lives.
EASY TO LEARN
It is amazing how fast a person can learn to memorize Bible verses. We use music and other methods to teach memorization. The Bible Quizzers practice, learn, and have fun. The scriptures they’re learning will stick with them their entire lives. The kids are incredibly intense.
INCREASES FAMILY TIME
The big advantage for the participants is when they are part of family study in their homes. After the children have memorized their verses and their locations, all words mentioned once, twice or three times in their study, then some great preparation can happen. Great studying happens when the parents ask the questions and the quizzer attempts to answer them. Bible Quizzing is for parents who want to put God first in the lives of their children.
LEARN THE WORD, LEARN ABOUT LIFE
All questions are taken from the Bible. Many are direct quotes. Bible Quizzing is done in a fun and challenging way.
Children not only learn the Word of God, but they also learn attentiveness, memorization skills, knowing how to encourage each other, sharing in the responsibilities of the team, playing fair, following directions from the coach, respecting the other team’s efforts and accepting the judgment calls of the officials.
