“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions” Joel 2:28
“Youth on Fire” is a vibrant section of this Ministry. They are always ready to go and preach the gospel, while spreading the Fire of the Holy Spirit.
Our heart is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ first and foremost to young people that need our Lord. We have learned that the power of the Holy Spirit & the Word in us, can change any situation and make a difference. So, we love challenges! Especially in a world where our youth are being bombarded with a variety of messages from many unreliable and unhealthy sources. We seek to send a clear message to the young people: “God loves and values them, and desires to use them (regardless of their ages) to impact this world.”
We desire to install in the young people the knowledge that they are loved unconditionally and assist them in making Godly choices and developing Godly values that will stay with them for life. We also seeks to grant the people the opportunity to serve and impact not only in Ekklesia Ministries but, also in their homes, neighborhoods, communities, schools and workplaces. We are committed to equipping the youth for this task. By encouraging our youth to develop vibrant and relevant programs geared to meeting the needs of the youth within our Ministry and communities, while always pointing them to Jesus Christ.
We are driven by the Word of God and don’t compromise! We stand in the maturity of Christ Jesus and rise up in the boldness of the Holy Spirit. How? By releasing our inner man to those in need of Christ around us. We have learned to walk in the (Agape) love of Christ and at the same time stand in His authority when casting out demons, or taking a stand in prayer.
We as the Youth of George, South Africa are strong believers of the principal of honoring the man and women of God in our lives and through that, helping others to learn God’s way of doing things. Pastor Kobus Smith’s vision is to reach the young people of George, Western Cape, South Africa and the World. By imparting to them the truth of the gospel and the glory of God.
Growing and maturing our youth through inspiration within the Biblical community of believers, teaching them to daily follow Christ, helping them discover and exercise their God-given gifts and ministerial opportunities, in the process of becoming like Christ.
“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ-from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” Ephesians 4:11-16.
