COR Congregations are committed to senior youth and young adult leadership.
COR congregations develop leaders by involving individuals with leadership potential in ministry and administration. The pastoral staff mentor and encourage young leaders and involve them in ministry planning and implementation.
Get the word out. Teach all these things. And don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching. And that special gift of ministry you were given when the leaders of the church laid hands on you and prayed—keep that dusted off and in use.
~ 1 Timothy 4:11-14 MSG
“With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen and soon-coming Savior might be carried to the whole world!"
~ Education, p. 271.
"There is no greater investment in the future of the church than by identifying, encouraging, and providing training for the young leaders in our midst."
~ Robert Lewis and Rob Wilkins in The Church of Irresistible Influence, p. 179.
