The foundation

Romans 12:11 - Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;” This scripture holds the identity to our drive and focus.

THE DEGREE is FCC’s Youth Group for Jr. High and Sr. High students. They are taught to use their faith in God and develop their capacity to love in order to become agents of change. A thermometer simply tells you what temperature it is, whereas a thermostat actively changes the temperature in the room. Our students are coached to approach life with a “thermostat” mindset by bringing change to an environment. They are actively encouraged to recognise and avoid a thermometer mindset, adjusting themselves to the world around them.

Therefore, they are THE DEGREE that makes a difference in their school, community, family and church!


THE DEGREE empowers youth to make a difference by teaching them to:

  • Being diligent in practical matters – “Not Slothful in business”
  • Being passionate in spiritual pursuits and development – “fervent in spirit”
  • Serving God’s House, people and the world in the name of the Lord – “serving the Lord”
