Purpose The purpose of the OCCCA youth and young adult fellowship is to honor God by loving His children and building them up to know their Father and His love for them. We have a vision to welcome youth and young adults from all backgrounds to find a place where we can all be members of one community to live and grow in the love of Jesus so that we can support one another and be supported in the safety and acceptance established by His love for us.
Values The youth and young adult fellowship of OCCCA believes the Bible is the highest source of authority given to us by God that reveals His love and character and shows us how we should live in relation to Him. We desire to provide each person with wisdom from knowing the Bible by teaching the tools that enable them to search the Scriptures and understand the meaning of the text. This way each person will be able to read the Bible for themselves, understand it, and be sure and firm in their daily walk with God. With this knowledge in hand, we desire to provide every person with an environment where we can live and apply the biblical wisdom and truths we’ve learned so that we can experience God’s blessing and goodness. In this way every youth and young adult will come to know the love and faithfulness of God. As members of the church—the Body of Christ—where each member has been gifted by God with distinct gifts and talents, we believe that all of us have been endowed by God so that we can serve eachother and our neighbors by being the presence of God in our community. It is our desire to build each other up through encouragement, love, and truth so that we can grow in maturity and in the grace of God, and in turn extend God’s grace to our neighbors in the community as well.
