Gemstones:  Men and Women Ages 18-30

“Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:13 NIV)


The Gemstones outreach seeks to remind young adults that the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ began at the age of 30.  No doubt preparations continued after speaking in the synagogue at 12 years old, until the time when Jesus began His full-time earthly ministry at the age of 30.  That unblemished ministry culminated at Calvary, when Jesus was only 33 years old.  At the young age of 33 years, Jesus Christ died to save a lost humanity, giving all mankind the chance of eternal life; and Christians, a reason for our living.  Pattern your life after the Lord.  Never feel too young or be carefree to make Jesus your mantle and Lord of your life.    

A secondary purpose of the Gemstones Outreach is to launch the Gemstones Outreach Network (GO Network).  Christian young people (especially those of Liberian/African descent) would interact, meet, and create strong bonds of friendship and camaraderie, based on mutual respect and admiration.

Liberians and African immigrants are blessed by many relationships developed while growing up in our native Africa.  Some friendships date back since toddler age, remained intact and formed the bedrock of adulthood relationships.  Numerous of those friendships continue and thrive through mid-life and seniorhood; often defying social, economic, and geographic circumstances.  Those relationships are still the strongest support systems for African immigrants. 

The GO Network endeavors to create a similar environment, providing young people of African descent, the opportunity to establish respectable long-lasting bonds.  The resultant pool of friends and acquaintances makes for dynamic interpersonal relationships.  Some of those friendships and relationships may lead to marriages; thus, facilitating the preservation of the African family values and structure.
