Other brothers serve among high-school aged youth. Once again their ministry involves front-line evangelism in schools, youth clubs and after-school activities, as well as running discipleship programs where those young people can discover what the call of Christ means for them. Some of the young people our brothers work with come from vulnerable and difficult backgrounds.
OUR WORK IN THE PHILIPPINES
This video showcases our work in the Philippines. The Servants of the Word brothers in the Philippines primarily work with young college students. They also serve the needy in the remote areas of the country.
"The Servants of the Word are one of the most dynamic new monastic movements in the worldwide Church. As a new student in London, they were one of the strongest spiritual influences in the growth of my own faith because of their openness and commitment to nurturing young vocations."
“I am delighted and honored to heartily endorse the dear brothers of the Servants of the Word and especially their very significant ministries with college students through University Christian Outreach. They build deeply meaningful relationships with many college students, invite them to know God personally, and help teach, shape and form them for lives of discipleship and service in God’s kingdom."
"This brotherhood is a living testimonial to the intersection of academic and religion to social action. Its members: academics, artists, non-profit leaders focus their faith on the development and implementation of programs like YouthWorks which provides some of Detroit's most vulnerable and marginalized citizens a pathway to possibility."
"I honor you, brothers of the Servant of the Word, for devoting your lives in reaching out to the youth in their own arena, in universities and work places, giving these young people a viable option of living a life pleasing to God. Our youth today can be easily radicalized in many worldly ideas, but the Servants of the Word offer an alternative of being radical disciples of the Lord."
"The brotherhood is deeply committed to helping others to have a better life. I have witnessed transformational change for the good in some of my students who have spent summers with members of their community. These students have retained these values and have gone on to becoming upstanding citizens within their communities."
