How often have you watched a game being played, where one side was clearly winning, and you’ve heard “There’s still a chance for a comeback!”
The Comeback Student Ministries, under Pastor Joshua Niemuth, is the teen and young adult ministry of Fort Yukon Assembly of God. The mission statement is ‘Building young people to make the comeback from death to life in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Our theme verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17- “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he (or she) is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” The Comeback is focused on restoration of families and relationships, in Fort Yukon and the Yukon Flats.
Throughout the Word of God, we see the theme of restoration and redemption. No matter how far gone a person may seem, the transforming power of an encounter with God can always bring a second chance. Through the Holy Spirit, and developing the habit of saying ‘yes’ to God, this generation can rise up as leaders and reach their families, villages, and cities for Christ.
