Organization's History


Our organization's History

When the idea of putting together a youth organization first breezed through my mind, I quickly dismissed it with the same speed with which it came rushing in. I reckoned at the time, I really did not need the hassle. Of course I wanted to impact young people, this has always come to me naturally, and the platform provided by my local church was enough to share whatever good I wanted to spread. Despite my hesitation, I continued and soldiered in my service in the teens and later youth ministry, but just as I was getting comfortable and thought I had settled into a reliable routine, I drove into a bump ahead. Ministry was one thing, passion to work within your calling was another. Try as I may, I couldn’t wish the thought away. It grew and grew and then I knew I needed a platform to drive that vision. As if out of the blue came the question: “why this concern for young people”, the answer came instantaneously: “It is because adults are not mindful of things that concern young people”. And so after a few hours of brain storming while on a journey to Port-Harcourt in August 2006, Mindful of Youths Initiative (MOYI) was borne. It was not until another three years precisely 2009 that the initiative was formally registered and yet another three years before it was formally launched and its present Board formed. MOYI as a Christian based organization is slowly but gradually creeping into the fabric of our lives with three aims in mind: to help young people identify and guide their career paths, to build a better interpersonal relationship between teens, with their parents and with the opposite sex, and lastly to spiritually guide and nurture them for the kingdom using practical biblical principles. The task ahead is enormous and as rightly observed by Thomas S. Monson:
“Some are young people who don’t know who they are, what they can be or even want to be. They are afraid, but they don’t know of what. They are angry, but they don’t know at whom. They are rejected and they don’t know why. All they want is to be somebody. ”
It is our goal in MOYI to help our young people walk that path that will usher them into their rightful place in society and into their destiny
