The Teen Ministry
In December 1998, a Christian-based organization providing resources, ideas and teaching for youth and children workers, the Olive Tenders, Bodija, invited our Sunday School teachers, among others, to a three-day enrichment programme titled 'Teenage Workers' Training"
Dr. (Mrs.) O.O. Adewunmi was the only one who attended from All Saints' Church Sunday School. It was this training workshop that sensitized her to the need for a Teenage Church to bridge the gap between the Sunday School and the main Adult Church. The Teenage Church would be tailored to meet the needs of these "seemingly neglected" young adolescents who not only felt too big for the Sunday School but at the same time felt insufficiently mature for the Adult Church.
The Youth Fellowship
There are two schools of thought about the origin of the Youth Fellowship. The first was that the Fellowship started when a set of young people in All Saints' Church decided to form a group in 1981 to be known as "All Saints' Church Youth Fellowship".
The Fellowship has as part of its aims, to lead members to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour; to help members develop spiritually, physically, educationally and socially; and to prepare members to take their rightful place in the Church.
