MISSIONARY PROFILE
JONATHAN SMITH
MINISTRY:
Youth Worker
HOME CHURCH:
Dungannon Free Presbyterian
ON FIELD SINCE:
2016
PROFILE:
I spent my childhood in England as my father, Rev David Smyth, pastored the churches in Tavistock and Liverpool. Christ saved me at a young age around seven years old. Perhaps not appreciating the benefit at the time, I now know that growing up in a Christian family grounded me in the truth of God's Word. Looking back to my teenage years I remember the challenges I faced growing up as a young person, even though I was raised by godly parents, and in 2017, I can see that these issues and challenges have certainly increased for the generation growing up now.

At the present time, I am married to Grace and have one little boy, Noah. I am a Youth worker for the Free Presbyterian Church, under the Mission Board, and the main thrust of my work is to evangelise teenagers in secondary schools. I teach in R.E. and personal development classes, as well as Assemblies and Scripture Union classes.

Another aspect of this work is to support the youth work within the denomination when needed for youth meetings, teenage summer clubs, weekends etc. This support is also given particularly to the Youth Council. We seek to assist them in whatever way we can, to help bring young people together for Bible teaching and recreation as well as encouraging Christian young people into evangelism.

I am burdened for this generation of young people, that they would step out from the sin and wickedness that surrounds them, into a powerful, meaningful relationship with Christ; that they would practice real genuine faith in every area of their lives, as well as having a concern for the lost.

Ps 78:7 is a favourite verse in the work: 'That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments..'
