Faith Tabernacle Youth Ministries, or RealYM, welcomes any non-married visitors and church members from the ages 15 and up to be a part of our family. We are a group of young people that are on willing to dedicate our time for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our homes and communities. Our RealYM Coordinators work hard to connect our youth members to several activities involving community outreach, RealYM Impact Groups, social media, special events, and fundraising. All members are encouraged to participate and become involved in a ministry.
RealYM is made up of two main groups consisting of high school students and those in college and/or career stages of their life. Every Wednesday night from 8:00-9:00 we meet in our youth building for Bible Education Classes to learn about and discuss the Word of God. Here we are encouraged to increase our understanding and knowledge of the Bible. During this time we also share important announcements for upcoming activities and events.
Our mission is simple: Striving to mature spiritually in a relationship with Christ, and uniting to serve our generation. With this in our minds and hearts, we hope to that you will find RealYM exactly the type of group you’re looking for. We hope to meet you soon.
