Baptist Children and Youth Ministry
Sharing God’s Healing Love with Children and Youth
BCYM organizes events and activities for vulnerable children and youth, including refugees, along with training conferences for youth leaders.
Children in Need
The Baptist Children and Youth Ministry (BCYM) aims to serve vulnerable children and youth in Lebanon by showing them the love of Christ and discipling them to maturity. In addition, it strives to develop long-term relationships with families through regular visits and relief support. BCYM carries out these goals by organizing three-day kids’ camps, one-day follow-up events, and training programs for both youth and children’s ministry leaders within the local churches. BCYM is dedicated to sharing hope and God’s love with even the most downtrodden of children and youths, including refugees, and raise them up into fully-functioning members of God’s kingdom.
BCYM’s vision is to see a new generation of young men and women rise up to take on responsibilities and initiatives within the children and youth ministries of the Lebanese churches and to reach out to the communities around them that are in need. BCYM’s mission is to identify, encourage, and equip young believers to serve the children and youth in their communities through the embrace of the church. Finally, BCYM’s highest goal is to share the love of Christ with previously unreached communities, to restore hope, and to encourage faith and discipleship through developing long-term relationships with children and their families.
Today BCYM holds around 20 three-day camps each year for Syrian and Lebanese children, along with 20 follow-up events. BCYM also expanded its reach to provide training for young leaders in the local churches, in order to achieve its vision of seeing a new generation of believers rise up to serve their communities through the church. Currently, BCYM hosts training workshops for youth leaders in locations across Lebanon. Additionally, BCYM recently began incorporating online programs into its ministry services in order to reach a wider population as a result of living through a time of social distancing. BCYM hopes to continue to expand its horizons and mobilize even more youth to reach out to the underprivileged within their own communities.

Ministry work is often like gardening. You till the soil, plant seeds, faithfully water, but mostly you watch and hope for fruit. Then, all at once, when the weather is finally right, the garden seems to explode with new life.
