AGF Young Adults Ministry
The Pursuit meets weekly on Thursdays at 7:00 pm to experience amazing relationships among young adults (18-30), and to worship together experiencing the powerful presence of God. Our mission in Pursuit, is to chase the truth. Like the picture of a deer panting for water, we are God followers who are in pursuit after the truth that is found in God’s Word. Each Pursuit service features praise and worship, and an anointed time in the Word. The Thursday night service is the main event for Pursuit and getting the Word in the lives of AGF young adults is a top priority. Along with providing avenues for spiritual growth for AGF young adults, The Pursuit has an emphasis on enjoying life, and experiencing the abundant life God has for us filled with fun, and that happens at each Pursuit service.
The Pursuit Leadership Training is comprised of two main areas of focus, one is spiritual growth and the other is leadership training. We believe that is important to develop AGF young adult leaders in these two specific ways. During first service on Sunday mornings (at 9:00AM) we have classes that specifically focus on the fundamentals of our relationship with God, on Christianity as a whole and on practical ministry training that is vital for any well equipped leader.
The Pursuit Connect Groups are small groups for young adults to build relationships with each other in a fun filled, personal atmosphere. The Pursuit Connect Groups are an after service gathering to have fun while building relationships with each other. Because of the demand on a young adult’s time, we want to have our Connect Groups start fifteen minutes after the Pursuit service ends. Each week is something different. Examples of Connect Groups are eating together at a restaurant, going bowling, having a barbeque, going to the movies, etc.
The Pursuit Semester Event is a fun event that we do outside the church doors. Events include Snowboarding and Skiing, Christian Band Festivals, and Boise State Football Games.
G2 is a youth-college merge night in which we create a “pep assembly” atmosphere inside of the youth church venue. Guest speakers rock the house, praise and worship is kicking, jock jams are playing, prizes are given at the door, video announcements are crazy, and other youth groups are invited to experience the fun of G2. G2 happens three times a year, in January, June and September.
The Pursuit Young Adults Retreat is an autumn weekend where young adults get away from the comfortable surroundings of Twin Falls, and go to a mountainous location to experience God, fellowship, and fun. There is always a guest speaker who comes in for the retreats. Contact Josh Jensen for more info!
