In Matthew 28 Jesus gives what has come to be known as the great commission. "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." This gives us a clear statement of what we are to be about as His church, making disciples. Jesus then tells us how to make disciples. "...baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." We are to seek loving and holy fellowship just as God is ever in perfect fellowship. This means that we must be about community, doing life together, going after the heart of God and of one another. Next we are to teach, in both word and deed, all that Jesus commanded, bringing every aspect of life under His Lordship. With so much of life clamoring for our attention and devotion, doing life together is essential and it is the model Jesus set and commanded for discipleship. Our heart for adult ministry is to follow the example of Christ and so produce ever deepening disciples of Jesus Christ who are a visible expression of His reign.

In John 4, Jesus has a fantastic conversation with a Samaritan woman at a well. In this conversation He exposes the broken heart of the woman who continued to chase after relationships that only ended in further brokenness. Jesus then reveals Himself to be the great lover of her soul, the one true and everlasting relationship that she was created for and that could heal her broken heart, fill her to overflowing and set her on mission. In a world that vies for the affections of our teenagers, it is our desire to lead our teenagers to this same love and grace of God as seen in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to see our teenagers so captured by the love of Christ as seen in His cross, that they will be consumed by the mission of Christ and unleashed into the world carrying, proclaiming and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In Isaiah 43, God states with wondrous clarity that we have been created, formed and made for His glory so that we would proclaim His praises.
In 1 Peter 2:9 we read, "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." Here Peter affirms that we are made to worship, to declare the praises of God as revealed in Jesus Christ.
The goal of the church then is the worship of God to the praise of His glory. In this way, worship gives birth to mission. As John Piper has stated well, “Missions exist because worship doesn’t.”
In Matthew 15 Jesus Himself warns against vain worship that proceeds from a divided heart. Our great desire is to have our visible praise collide with a heart that is joyfully surrendered to the Lordship of Christ that unleashes worship that glorifies God.
As such, every other ministry is not an end in itself but is designed to move our hearts to the genuine worship of God in Christ Jesus, that He may be adored in all the earth. For this reason, we take serious the privilege and responsibility of leading others into worship.
Our aim is to ever exalt and point to Jesus Christ who is our worship and our worship leader, apart from whom true worship does not exist.
