Who We Are



LOGmichiana and the Love Of God retreats are under the auspices of Michiana Youth Ministries, Inc.  MYM was founded in 2005 in order to support and grow the LOG program which until that time had been a ministry of First Presbyterian Church in South Bend.  Michiana Youth Ministries, Inc is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization.

VISION


Michiana Youth Ministries strives to give youth opportunities to build a foundation for a spiritual life that lasts a lifetime.  Through their experiences, LOG participants will have a deeper relationship with God and will use their faith as a resource for support and guidance. MYM envisions that participants will grow into caring, responsible adults who are leaders in their professions, community and faith.

 

MISSION


Michiana Youth Ministries offers high school students peer-led weekend retreats in which they can experience the love of God, enjoy Christian community and grow in servant leadership.

BELIEF STATEMENT


We believe that there is one God, eternally existent and known to us in the persons of the Trinity:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit – – Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer. We believe people are forgiven for sin and receive eternal life through a repentant relationship with Jesus Christ, which evidences itself in obedient, faithful living.

We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God that we can trust to be the unique and authoritative witness to God’s presence and activity in the world. The Bible is God’s story and at the same time our story and relevant for our lives as it is revealed to us through the power and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Church is the incarnation of Christ in the world. The People of God as the Church become the stronghold in which we are nurtured and nourished and the agency by which people are drawn into relationship with and reconciled to God and then empowered to be the Body of Christ in the world.
