Dear Community, It is my joy to serve as director of Agape’s Youth and Family Ministry whose goal it is to offer spiritual teachings that birth the next phase of each child’s unique process of evolution. It is our conviction that through a realization of oneness with the Spirit, children are graced with confidence in the goodness of the universe, the unconditional love of God. Love is the essential foundation of all that we teach, speak and do in the Youth Village. So for every program we provide a stage for our children to express their unique gifts and talents so that they may actualize their divine purpose for being on the planet. We offer an atmosphere where children are taught the universal spiritual principles governing the universe as practiced by Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Sri Aurobindo, Joel Goldsmith, Howard Thurman, Ernest Holmes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, Dr. Michael Beckwith and other spiritual luminaries. Reflecting the perennial wisdom of the ages, these principles are found at the heart of the world’s spiritual traditions. Rev. Leon Campbell Arlene Campbell, ALSP

Dear Parents and Guardians, A heartfelt welcome to you and your children as you join the beloved Community today to worship, pray and play. If you have ever attended a christening at Agape, then you have no doubt heard me say that “it takes a child to raise a village.” As the Master Teacher aptly put it, “…for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Honoring the uniqueness that manifests through and as every child who walks through our doors forms the basis of Agape’s Youth Village and Teen Ministry programs.

Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Our class instructors approach interacting with their students with the recognition that each child is a full representation the Spirit. Their class lessons teach the universal spiritual principles governing the universe that instruct children in how to cultivate their talents, gifts and innate capacity to live their highest potential. Through experiential participation, creativity and dialogue, students of all ages learn how to cultivate a personal relationship with the Spirit to which they may turn again and again throughout their daily experiences for comfort, guidance, strength and unconditional love. Agape’s culturally diverse community offers its students an opportunity to appreciate God’s wardrobe of many colors, a variety of languages, cultural traditions and celebrations.

The guidelines described on the following pages have been prayerfully and thoughtfully designed to maximize your child’s experience, as well as giving you the peace of mind you deserve so that you may be fully present while attending the adult service. I encourage you to read the entire document and familiarize yourself with its details so that you and your child may experience to the utmost your worship service of spiritual celebration that unites us as a community and goes out into our world as a blessing. Peace and blessings, Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith Founder and Spiritual Director
