The Bread of life church youth ministry known as JG (Joshua Generation) is one of the most vibrant and active ministries of the church. The ministry is meant for youths of the church both male and female. After the children’s ministry, this is the next stage for the youths.
Through a prophetic word received from Bishop Joe Imakando in 2002 that the youth will bring revival to the church, by building young leaders and good leadership like that of Joshua, who was bold, courageous and lived by the standard of the word of God.
The Ministry is led by Pastor Oscar Mumba the Youth and Student ministry Pastor, upholds a vision of building God fearing responsible youths. This is done through calculated programs of discipleship and fellowship, consisting of various activities to impact our young people with the word of God.
