The Mission: We exist to bring youth to confess throughout the world that Jesus truly is God’s Son by surrendered lifestyles that impact communities...
The Earth Shakers Youth Movement is an idea birthed out of a conversation with Jim Welch, the founder of Summer's Best Two Weeks. We both believe that the world will be drastically altered when the body of Christ comes together and focuses on those who have been culturally, socially, and ethnically displaced, now wading in the treacherous waters of identity crisis. As we all know depression, suicide, gang violence, anorexia and bulimia, drugs, pre-marital sex, teen pregnancy, obesity, unemployment, etc. are all issues for the urban context that are not new. Our desire was not to reinvent the wheel, but hopefully provide a structure that would be helpful and aid in the success for generations to come. The reality is, children are NOT our future. Children are our present and will lead in our footsteps in the future.
Therefore, the Movement encourages youth to pursue the accomplishment of honoring the five tenants: purity, personal development, permanent union, parental fidelity, and public relations.
In doing so, our prayer is the following passage and we pray that the Lord would allow us to live the same result.
"Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness."And I am certain that if we continue in the faith pursuing the Lord Jesus first and His righteousness that the world will come to say of us what was said of the disciples of our Lord:
- Acts 4:29-31
"These that have turned the world upside down are come here also..."
- Acts 17:6
This is a vintage message shared by Timotheus Pope to Du Rag Ministries on the campus of James Madison University in October 2007. It is still just as relevant today. Hear T. Pope share God's heart concerning the worshipper from Genesis 15.
