YWEA22

Why this Project?
YWEA (Youth World Evangelism Action) is the ministry that allows the youth and children of the Church of God the opportunity to fulfill the discipleship challenge of the Great Commission.
Why do they need our help?
The YWEA 2022 project “Land of the Rising Sun” is an incredible opportunity to impact the most populated region of the world… Asia.  With your help we will do it by focusing on the  following three strategic ministries: Tokyo’s Lighthouse City Training Center; Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM); and a Vietnamese Orphanage & Feeding program.
How will the money be used?
We will highlight Tokyo’s Lighthouse City Training Center; Vietnamese Orphanage and Feeding program, as well as the Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM). By partnering with Church of God World Missions, and Church of God congregations around the world, the Church of God Youth and Discipleship Department, through YWEA (Youth World Evangelism Action), will make an eternal investment in the lives of families, girls and boys throughout Asia.
What can I do to help?
We encourage Pastors and leaders to support this vital initiative by praying for Japan, the ASCM and our Orphanage and feeding program in Vietnam.

2020 Girls Week

The curriculum is a fantastic study on this year’s YWEA Project and GOAM Project in Africa.  It can be used anytime of the year and it is not necessary to have an organized club to utilize this excellent study on missions.  All girls will enjoy being a part of this creative course!

SEALED

SEALED curriculum contains important truths, marked with a seal of authenticity that only God can place upon them. We’ve been warned that false doctrine is accumulating to destroy the faith of believers. “God’s solid foundation stands firm, with this inscription: The Lord knows those who are His…”(2 Timothy 2:19). God intently longs for us to arrive at the heavenly destination of His Presence. It’s up to us to stand firmly on His solid foundation, learn His truths, and keep the bond that holds us protected and preserved to Him: SEALED.
