Will prepare them to be social agents for change


By Chinta Strausberg


Cinque Cullar, director of Youth Ministries at Saint Sabina, said the theme for the God’s Squad Youth ministry for 2012 will be “God Wants You Now” and that he plans on integrating the youth into each worship service so that they will develop a relationship with the Lord and become accountable to Him as a young Christian.

“We will be helping our youth build relationships with God,” said Cullar who also is a professional gospel singer. “We will teach them what is an authentic relationship with God, and I am looking to launch a Tuesday night youth Bible Study around 6:30 p.m. in the Imoja House complete with food for the youth.”

Cullar said the bible study will be for youth between 7-years-old to high school.  His goal is to help train up a generation of spiritual warriors for Christ who will be equipped with the knowledge of what discipleship cost. “The question is are you willing,”? Cullar said he plans on preparing them and to whet their spiritual appetite so that they will be willing to work and learn about Christ.

And, Cullar is putting a different spin on his goals. He will be teaching them how to engage in a letter-writing campaign to demand justice legislatively. “We want to strongly encourage a healthy relationship with God, their parents and their peers,” said Cullar. “If we can drive that home, we will see some good results.”

Cullar also wants to integrate the youth into the worship services on a more consistent basis, which will allow for ownership of the service. He said it would hold them accountable for their participation in the worship service while challenging them to know the Lord more.

Cullar, who is very excited about being a part of planting “good seeds,” said, “By integrating them into the service with the Lord, you will have to have a relationship.” Like Father Michael L. Pfleger’s mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cullar wants to teach the youth how to be social agents for change.

Pfleger is big on mentorship and planting spiritual seeds in good and fertile soil. He constantly reaches out to the youth and was highly praised for having “Youth Day” last Sunday where the youth took over the entire service including the choir. Cullar wants to integrate the youth in every service while still having an annual “Youth Day” at Saint Sabina and their own spiritual training class.
