AD4J (Armed & Dangerous 4 Jesus) is under the leadership of Deacon Erick & Dcnss. LaToya Scott. AD4J is a Youth Ministry for preteens and teens ages 13 – 17 and has been a ministry since 2005.
Purpose: To help and let our young people know that you can go out and have fun the right way and be Saved in Jesus Christ.
We help those who have been abused or neglected in their homes and to seek God so that they can be restored. We help counsel those who are facing peer pressure in this world where other teens are doing things that are contrary to what God requires them to do. We are there to counsel with teens who have low self-esteem or who just need more guidance for a better and want to build a stronger relationship with God.
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).
We also have a Christian Rap group called B.I.C. (Bruthas In Christ) that is also part of this ministry. By putting this ministry within this ministry, we will be able to reach out to more and more youth that is into rap music. At the same time, when they hear the Spirit of God by listening to the lyrics, they will be able to invite Jesus Christ into their lives.
“I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.” (Psalm 108:3 KJV)
AD4J is not just living the Word of God, but about having fun with Him as well!
