GO Generation Youth

The Youth Department at Gospel Outreach has been dubbed the GO Generation and welcomes all youth ages 4 – 18 to join. The mission of the GO Generation is to disciple the lost and empower the redeemed, compelling youth to take ownership of his or her own Christian walk. The goal of the GO Generation is to provide relevant activities, events, and relationships that will influence youth to know, love, and serve the God of the Bible and His Son, Jesus Christ.

The GO Generation is led by our Director of Youth, Minister Joshua Jackson, and his wife Angelica.
Children’s Church
Children’s Church is a service designed for children ages 4 – 12 held during Sunday morning services and any special services. Research data shows that the most formative years of a child’s life are the moment of birth to the age of six. In an effort to win the war for the lives and souls of our children, Gospel Outreach Ministries COGIC offers a comprehensive children’s church ministry every Sunday morning beginning at approximately 10:45 am. The children who participate in the GOCOGIC Children’s Church every Sunday experience praise and worship along with a thorough curriculum of biblical teaching. There are also arts, crafts, projects, music, videos, and other fun activities that reinforce the message of Jesus Christ preached by our pastor.

GO Hard Wednesday

All Youth (4-18)
Wednesday 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
GO Hard Wednesday is a midweek Bible Study dealing with relevant youth issues. Music, food, fun, games, and a relevant Bible message for the real issues of teen and tween life. In the midst of postmodernism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, violence, drugs, and alcohol being promoted through high schools, middle schools, television, music, radio, and social media, God is raising up a GO Generation of teenagers and pre-teens that are equipped to stand up for truth in their faith in Jesus Christ. 
Youth from all over the Grand Forks area are taught to believe in the biblical foundation of God’s Word and boldly adhere to the doctrine of its foundation.

Music & Arts Ministry

Young People Willing Workers (YPWW)

At GOCOGIC, this is Bible Study for the young and old. We endeavor in YPWW to provide an atmosphere of learning and creativity. It is our goal to challenge the youth particularly, to develop a love for the Word of God and seek creative ways to do that. Our focus is on the Word of God and we use a variety of techniques to “get the Word in us”. We have “Bible Bowls”, “Artistic Scripture Interpretation Contests”, “Scripture Search Challenges” and “Bible Question Look-up” just to name a few. COGIC literature provides a series of topics that provoke discussion and lead to a greater depth of knowledge about the scriptures. Our weekly meetings are lively, spirit filled, and are designed to Glorify God.
