spot light

God has blessed us with a great group of Christian Ministers and

we want to take a little time each month to spot light their ministries.

This Month: Joshua Generation Youth



Joshua Generation Youth


Parent Night


What is Parent Night?
As a parent myself, I wouldn’t allow my child to go to church with just anyone driving a church van. I want to know who they are, what they are teaching (making sure it’s in line with God’s Word), and I want to make sure it is a safe environment for my child. That is what we want to happen through this event.
Parent night is an event that is aimed at parents, grandparents, and guardians of teens and pre-teens in the Advance (and surrounding) area. It will be an OPEN-HOUSE set-up, meaning that you can stop by anytime during the time-frame for as long as your schedule allows.
My wife is a school teacher and it was during an open-house they were having that God began dealing with me that we needed to do something similar. That is where Parent Night comes in. Our desire in this is to show you what Joshua Generation Youth Ministries is about, what programs we offer, and for you to get to know us, etc.
What to expect:
Our leadership will be present to talk with you and to answer any questions you may have
We will have information/displays of the programs and “plug-in” opportunities we offer
Parent and student testimonies of what Joshua Generation Youth Ministries has meant to them/their family.
Where and when is Parent Night?
Parent Night will be held on April 2nd from 2 PM to 5 PM at Advance First Church. It will only take a brief moment of your time and will be well worth the effort.
Who is Joshua Generation?
Joshua Generation Youth Ministries is an outreach of Advance First Church, Inc. Our passion is to see youth come into a greater intimacy with Jesus. We love the Word of God and believe that it truly is “God-breathed!” We want to see students come to find out who they are created to be IN CHRIST! We want to show them the life that God has promised them in the Word, both in this life and the one to come!
God’s Word is PRIORITY in EVERYTHING we do in Joshua Generation! We like to have fun, laugh, fellowship, play games, but if that’s all we did, we would be doing your children a great injustice! When we have a youth night, God’s Word will be presented! When we go on a trip, God’s Word will be presented! If we have a game night, God’s Word will be presented! Last year, I took several of the young men on a canoe trip and even there on the riverbank, the Word of God was brought forth! You cannot have changed lives without God’s LIFE-CHANGING WORD!
We would like to see your child have this kind of encounter with Jesus! To find out that he/she is loved by the God who created it all…the One that holds all the power! Come visit us on April 2nd, I guarantee you that you’ll not be disappointed!
