NYM exists to see MORE STUDENTS look MORE LIKE JESUS so they can radically change their world through Him.
That's a bold mission. You might be wondering, "how do you actually accomplish that?"
We accomplish that Mission through our Values:
Worship - We are created to worship.
We recognize that we are all hard-wired to worship something and that worship is a response to what matters most to us. With that said, we value worshipping God with every fiber of our being in every area of our lives.
Community - We don't do life alone.
In Genesis 2:18, we see God's design for man to be surrounded by other people. We weren't created to do life alone. Therefore, our value of community doesn't allow us to do so! Through Small Groups, students have opportunities to share their life, struggles and victories in ways that encourage them towards being more like Jesus.
Grow - We are on the move.
The more you spend time with someone, the more you start to sound like, talk like and look like that person. We want NYM to be made up of people who consistently spend time with Jesus so they can sound like, talk like and look like Him.
Serve - We see needs and meet needs.
Jesus is the greatest leader to ever walk this earth. Modeling to us what servant leadership looks like through His death on the cross, Jesus challenges us daily to lay down our own preferences and comforts for the sake of His Kingdom.
Invite - We are all missionaries.
Jesus doesn't save us to sit on the sidelines, He saves us to be sent into the world to radically change it through Him. We believe God has strategically sent us into our schools, neighborhoods, and sports teams for His glory. In relationships, we want to be praying for salvation, investing in a real relationship of trust and respect, and inviting those people to their appropriate next step in Christ.
