Egypt - Bible Youth Engagement
Bible Youth Engagement
Engaging Rural Teenagers with the Scripture through Talent Shows
Ministry: Youth & Children / Bible Engagement
Egyptian youth today are exposed to unique challenges—such as a new and increasing tension between religiosity, secularism and atheism. The rapid development of technology is also exposing these youth to new concepts and ideas that they may not equipped to handle. Parents of these youth are also finding it increasingly difficult to shepherd their children in lieu of the myriad of influences from the Internet and contemporary society.
This presents a great need to connect with these youth by making the Word of God relevant to them, via the use of new media and the Internet. There have been efforts to make the Bible available on mobile applications to make it accessible for the youth.
However, in order to truly disciple these youth and root them in spiritual truths of God’s Word, more must be done to reach them. This is why the Bible Society in Egypt has begun working with the local churches to start a talent competition during the Coptic festivals, in an effort to engage high school and college-age youth—building their confidence in the Word.
Youth Ministries in the local churches are lacking both the expertise and resources to disciple the youth, as they are unable to cope with rapid technological development and fast-changing values. Thus, the Bible Society of Egypt needs to come alongside these churches to capture the hearts of the youth, to sow the seeds of God’s love in their hearts.
With your Contribution, participants will be inspired to engage further with Scripture and to be involved in church, where they can use their gifts. The churches will be encouraged and helped, as this platform provides them access to minister and follow-up with the youth.
