Jesus said, "By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit." (John 15:8) Our desire is that by the time teens leave our doors they will be thriving for God. We teach our teens six ways in which they can do this. They are all things the very first church in history did to thrive.
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly in...fellowship."
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine"
Acts 2:46-47 "So continuing daily with one accord in the temple...praising God."
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly...in prayers."
Acts 2:40 "And with many other words Peter testified and exhorted them, saying, 'Be saved from this perverse generation.'"
Acts 2:45 "And they sold their possessions and goods, and divided among them all, as anyone had need."
These are what we call Greenhouse Effects because they are the kinds of values that we work to instill in every teen that we minister to. We believe that if they live these things out they will produce spiritual fruit for God and thrive.
