Anointed Word International Ministries, Inc. has a great love for the youth of this generation. We have been mandated by God to arrest the attention of the youth and show them a better way than the one which the devil is using to capture the minds of those who have no strong biblical foundation on which to stand. Consequently, God's Empowered Generation (G.E.G.) has a multiplicity of activities and sessions in which our youth are regularly involved to keep them not only occupied, but in joyful participation because of the mind-challenging and body-building events geared to their age groups. Our Youth Coordinator, Deadra Curry is very diligent in the scheduling of the numerous events. Some of these events include:
1. Basketball Events - to insure that our youth are not only involved in fun activities, but activities that help to guard against obesity and youth diabetes. These Basketball activities engage them in sports activities which cause them to move all parts of their bodies and help them to become and remain trim and fit for the challenges of today's world.
2. Roller skating, bowling, car washes, candy sells, and movie nights are implemented to give our youth the opportunity of being involved in the financial upkeep of youth affairs by raising funds from ticket sales which are earmarked to help support our activities, supplies, and equipment needs, and field trip activities, as well as learning how to be responsible.
3. Other - Field trips to Museums, Field Studies, Movies, Theatre, and Networking with other Youth Ministries from other churches, and neighboring communities.

Youth Bible Studies - Because the Word of the Lord is essential in the lives of our young people of ALL age groups, it is imperative that we have Bible Study sessions geared specifically to our youth. The word of the Lord says in Prov. 22:6" Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it (from the training that he has received)"; therefore, we spare no effort in insuring that our youth are taught God's word and are given the opportunity to openly discuss it in every session. Q&A sessions are conducted in which they are able to ask any question for which they are in need of an answer, and to receive sound and accurate information, coupled with biblically based support which is readily given.
Youth Forum Sessions are held in a corporate setting every five to six weeks, and Every Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the church. During these sessions, the Youth are in charge, and many times visiting speakers, including some famous sports figures are presented to speak motivationally and give advice to our young attendees. The children, as well as the youth, ranging in ages from 5 through 20, consider these sessions quite a wonderful privilege in that they are able to come together and talk about "their" issues, about which they need truthful answers and advice or guidance. We also offer Computer Training, Media Production; learning how to operate Industry Standard Broadcast cameras and learn their functions, how to do basic 3-Point lighting, Photography, Editing, how to operate ProPresenter for Animation Backgrounds to accommodate the lyrics to Worship songs, presentations, bible scriptures, operation of the Audio Board, Playing Musical Instruments, Vocal Coaching, and how to work as a team, and how to respect one another as well as adults…Preparing them for the Kingdom Ambassadors that they are called to be.
Truly the Holy Spirit not only reigns supreme with our adults, but His intervention is present to assist us in helping our youth of today to become the well-adjusted adults of tomorrow that God can use for His glory and honor.
