LETTER TO YOUTH PASTORS

What is the OG Army and How Can It Help Your Young People?

Dear Youth Pastor,

We would like to introduce you to the OG Army this week. We desire to let you know what exactly it is and how it can help the young people that you minister to each and every week. We would love to see every young person who loves Jesus and wants to serve Him with their life to be a part of the OG Army, so we can encourage them, make them belong, and help them get to wherever God wants them in this great big world.

OG Army is an elite group of young people who love Jesus and want to serve Him! As a part of OG Army, they will be encouraged in their personal walk with the Lord and learning what ministry looks like in preparation for whatever God has for them. We know every Christian is commanded to evangelize the world, but your average 14-year-old has no idea how to do that today, let alone in the future, and honestly, it scares them to take that step to sell out.

We know that every week you are discipling them and teaching them to do these things, but we want to come alongside of you and the great work you’re doing at your church to help them be exactly what God has for them to be today and tomorrow. We as the OG Army are for getting young people in the perfect will of God and obeying the command to get the Gospel to all the world, starting TODAY!

So, how does OG Army work? Every young person who is a part of the OG Army has to fit certain criteria. OG Army is for young people who love Jesus and want to do something about it! These are the requirements to be a part.

  • First, a young person must be saved! How can someone really love Jesus if they’ve never experienced the love of Christ? OG Army is not an evangelistic arm but rather a training arm to train the next generation of Christ-loving young people to be world evangelists doing their part to reach the world with the Gospel by doing whatever Christ has for them.
  • The second requirement is that they have a desire to learn about missions. We pull no punches in the fact that we believe every Christian has a part in getting the Gospel to the world, that they need to have a desire to learn more about finding their part, and that they need to find out how to do their part, whatever that may be.
  • The final requirment is that a parent or guardian approves of them joining. We want parents to know that we are on their side and want to be above board in the fact that their child loving and serving Jesus includes them honoring and obeying mom and dad.

For those young people who fit these three criteria, they can sign up for OG Army one of two ways: either online at the following link www.worldevangelismcenter.org/ogarmy or by filling out an enlistment card with one of our Vision Baptist Missionaries. Either way they join, soon after they will receive an introduction packet that will include a welcome letter, a manual, a baseball card sleeve to collect OG Army trading cards from VBM missionaries that may visit your church, and their very own personalized OG Army members card.

After this, to remain a member of the OG Army, they must respond to either one of our mail outs, one of our emails, or do one of the rank assignments once in a year. We only want young people who want to be active in their journey toward the will of God and reaching the world with the Gospel. For those young people who would like, we have ranking assignments that are age graded that include reading the Bible (with provided Bible reading chart), scripture memory, lessons on serving Jesus and ministry, and lessons on missions. Also, in the future, there will be special events and perks for OG Army members, including discounts on our camp and summit.

So, can you help us by telling every young person you have who loves Jesus and wants to serve Him in some way to sign up for OG Army? If you have any more questions or want more information, don’t hesitate to contact us. It is our goal to get the world evangelized in our generation. To do this, we want to come along side you in mobilizing your young people for the will of God!
