Youth Creative

Youth Creative Ontario

 

A collective of creative arts groups in Ontario that seek to share the good news of Jesus and bring glory to God through the gifts he has given us. 

About us

Youth creative is a ministry of the Ontario Salvation Army Youth Department that represents and supports the collective of youth choirs, bands, worship teams and production groups throughout the division. It is a community of young people who want to grow in their relationship with Christ as they grow in their craft and use it to serve and minister to others. The mission of this ministry is the same as the greater Salvation Army which is “to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the communities of our world”. Our values are mission, inclusivity and unity. We believe that our youth are not just the next generation but that they are this generation and can have a great impact in our church communities today.
