In his Youth Sunday message at Khedi Baptist Church Kohima the speaker Rev. Vikuo Rhi, youth secretary, NBCC urged the youth ministry to be Christ-centered focusing on soul-winning rather than being overly programme oriented or entertainment-centered. 

Speaking on the need for multiplication through discipleship making, impacting and imparting Christian values into young people’s heart, recognizing and valuing the potentials of young people and utilizing them, the speaker called upon the church to place youth ministry on top priority of the Church ministry. 

He also added that the church must be able to effectively use modern information technology and new media tools for evangelism, Church growth and furtherance of God’s kingdom building. 

He further challenged the youth to live above pandemic by citing the story of Jesus and Peter walking on the water found in Matthew 14:25 – 34. NBCC has 1661 local churches with 2, 12, 307 youth members.
