What We Believe God Has Called Us to Do

We believe God has called us, in partnership with parents, to:

  • INVEST in the next generation of young people in significant ways
  • INSTRUCT them in the core doctrines and disciplines of the Christian faith along with principles for living healthy, wise and productive lives
  • INSPIRE them by our example and challenge them to take faith-filled risks
  • IGNITE them with a passion for Jesus Christ, a love for the lost, a commitment to the local church, and finally, to launch them into the world prepared for life, for relationships, for service, and for leadership

Young Men of Valor (YMV)

Director: Jarrell Scott

Send Email

Young Men of Valor (YMV) is an auxiliary commission entity under the International Youth Department.

The sole focus of this organization is on building and cultivating the 21st Century God-fearing male ages 13-21.

YMV is crafted and designed for males exclusively. Locally, there should be monthly Locker Room Sessions, where men (leaders and participants) share their heart, secrets, and issues/challenges. Locker Room Sessions should be kept private and confidential. We have titled the sessions “The Locker Room” with our revolving theme being, What’s said in the Locker Room, Stays in the Locker Room.” There should never be vulgar (street) expressions or profanity used during a Locker Room Session, with all terms expressed from a “professional/academic” perspective.  Also, all sessions should have a vetted individual prepared to minister to the needs of the males from a biblical position.
