Youth Ministry (Oikos)

Oikos Student Ministries

What is Oikos?

OikosOy’-kos-noun: A house, dwelling place; family, the family of God, the Christian Church. Jesus commissioned the church to continue His ministry of reconciliation to the lost; and He both modeled and taught a strategic formula that would facilitate that great endeavor.

From the beginning, God has consistently focused on a specific group, the oikos, the family, as His initial target for evangelism. That is, He primarily perpetuates His Kingdom through those close relational connections that we all have. Throughout the New Testament, whenever God’s Spirit changed a life, a world-changer was born.

Whether it was a demon-possessed man, a swindler named Zacchaeus, a royal official with a dying son, a tax collector named Matthew, a Centurion named Cornelius, a businesswoman named Lydia or a recently unemployed Philippian jailor, they all were sent back home to their oikos. While different cultures and generations reflect unique characteristics, the oikos phenomenon remains a constant.

Be a world-changer…join the Oikos.
