Ashland Young Adults 2023-08-10T16:35:55-04:00

Whether you’re on-campus, in the work world, or a little of both at Ashland Church we want all college students and young adults to live for Christ, for the church, for the world, for life!

We want all young adults to be able to say with the Apostle Paul, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain,” (Philippians 1:21) and really mean it! There is no one greater and there is no one more important than Jesus. Jesus changes everything and he is changing the lives of young adults for his glory and for their good. He lived the perfect life we were supposed to live and he died the shameful death we deserved to die. Now, he calls everyone to take up their cross and follow him by faith. Following Jesus doesn’t make life easier, but it does make it better forever.

Want to learn more about following Jesus? Start a conversation with someone from our church right here.

It’s in the church where multi-generational discipleship flourishes. It’s the environment where young and old come together to be pushed towards greater love for and faithfulness to Jesus. You need people in your life who’ve walked with Jesus for 30 years longer than you. You need to see married couples following Jesus together. You need to see parents striving to raise their kids to love Jesus. You need to walk alongside folks nearing the end of their lives who praise God as they head to meet Him. And just as much as you need them, they need you. The family called “church” is where all of this happens.

Jesus said that we are his witnesses (Acts 1:8) and he commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). That starts with your lost classmates and coworkers right here in Madison County, but it doesn’t stop there! At Ashland Church our vision is to send young adults out from Richmond to make disciples in New Orleans, Peru, and to the ends of the earth!

It’s our prayer that all of the young adults at Ashland Church will follow Christ every day until their dying breath. We aim to train and disciple them to that end. We focus on teaching them the Word of God, embracing biblical friendship in our Bible Fellowship Groups, and cultivating a life of serving others in the church and to the ends of the earth. We call these our Essentials.
