Vibrant, dynamic, active, bubbly, enthusiastic, fiery, zealous, passionate and gutsy are just few of the gazillions of words that collide and fuse together to become a single “fire cracker” of a word, called, “YOUTH.”
The youth wing of Divya Shanthi church is not just an outlet that helps youngsters experience and practise the love of Christ, it is an extension of each and every youngster’s family. And every member of the youth is taught about his/her role, how he/she contributes to society and the spreading of the good news. The youth of Divya Shanthi Church are driven by a force - the spirit of God. Each and every member’s talents are gems that are intricately and thoughtfully placed on the crown of achievements that they have acquired under the craftsmanship of Christ. Sports, dancing, singing, you name it, the youth of Divya Shanthi are the cream of the crop. The youth took part in the KCD CSI Bangalore civil area football tournament and finished as runners up amongst the dozens of churches that took part, came first in both solo and western singing competitions and these are just the tip of the iceberg.
The leaders nurture the youth by feeding them with the word of God and generate an environment that is friendly and fun loving. Fun is a word that the youth are familiar with and they have made memories filled with joy and laughter when they went on a retreat to goa and kodaikanal where they reflected on the bible and had fellowship.
From being a small church in a then unfamiliar place called lingarajapuram to a church with an overflowing congregation, DivyaShanthi has flourished and along with it, so has its youth. The youth have made the walls of Divya Shanthi the host to its very own intra church fest called ‘En Fuego,’ held every year and it was a grand success last year as well. It gave opportunities to everyone to showcase their talent.
Over these 40 years, the youth of this church, ones that are and the ones that were, put their passion and hard work into making it what it is today. The youth has flourished and is still bursting with energy and electrifying zeal and welcomes everyone who wants to be a part of it. “The only way to have a friend is to be one”.
