Texas Youth & Discipleship

Bishop Matthew Propes, Director

The goal of the Youth & Discipleship Department is to provide resources for pastors, youth leaders, children’s leaders, young adult leaders, volunteer workers, or anyone interested in ministering to youth or children. Such resources can be found here or by calling our department. Other opportunities for resourcing and connecting come through our various ministries provided throughout the year for your local church’s youth and children’s ministry. Ministry events such as Code Red Lock-In, Winterfest, Kidfest, Youth Camps, Youth & Children’s Leaders Elevate Retreat, Girls Clubs, Boys Royal Rangers, Teen Talent, and Junior Talent are designed to positively impact you and your church.

Vision Statement


  • PSALMS 144:12,15 Then our sons in their youth will be like a well-nurtured and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace…Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord.
  • VISION STATEMENT: For teens and children to radically commit their lives to Christ; to make wise choices; for older mentors; for authentic friendships with their peers who are following Jesus; for open trust and communication with parents; for God’s intentions for their generation to come for in the fullest measure.
  • DISCIPLESHIP: Discipleship is an adventure, and one of the privileges of youth ministry is being able to walk with students on this amazing journey. We pray that the Texas Youth & Discipleship programs, resources, training, etc. Will help you and your Church fulfill Jesus’ call to make disciples and help Christian teenagers live differently!
    The great Commission outlines how we are to do this, Matthew 28:19-20. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Our passion for Texas Youth & Discipleship is to is to FINISH the great commission by Investing, Invading, and Increasing.

Please join me as we strive to reach the Jeremiah Generation and empower them to become Kingdom Workers now and release them to reap a harvest. We can accomplish this by these five objectives.
