Open Door

Open Door’s mission is “…to be an open door and bridge that points to the open door of salvation found in Christ Jesus.” John 10:9

The purpose is to be a safe haven and place of love for teens. To create an environment that encourages and fosters hope in the life of teens. To motivate, inspire, and equip the next generation. To promote a collective spirit of unity in Christ as together we seek to be the change and bring change to our community. We serve alongside each other as leaders and ambassadors of Christ’s message of truth to the lost.

We are a group of people from area churches in Chester County came together to seek God’s will in starting a teen center. After many meetings and much prayer, the group felt God leading them to hold an event called the “Open Door”.

This is not your ordinary youth event. It’s targeted to reach the teens in Chester who might never come through the doors of any church. The name is taken from John 10:9, where Jesus says that He is the door and anyone who enters through Him will be saved. The concept is simple. We want to open the doors of the church to any teen with the hope that we can build relationships, love on them, and point them to the Open Door of Jesus Christ.

Stations are set up with movies, music, video games, snacks, etc. We want to create an atmosphere where kids will feel comfortable to be themselves. There is also a Christian music performance and a message time midway through the night. Always keep an eye on the calendar to see when and where the next Open Door event will be held.
