The Nest is a project undertaken in order to invigorate our youth and bring them to a better understanding of the Gospel. Our church has seen fit to plant a seed in the heart of each young believer in our midst, and to make sure that their natural hunger for the Word of God is fulfilled.
There is a necessity for the youth in the message to be able to socialize with each other during their free time, in a spiritual environment free from the influences of the world. Therefore we provide an environment with activities and comfort where they can feel free to gather amongst their own. They are encouraged to share their testimonies, scriptures and advice on Christian living without condemnation.
And what does the prophet say on the matter?
Keep them in Christian company as long as you possibly can. Keep them with…If it’s a girl, keep her with Christian girls; Christian boys, vice versa. If she’s old enough to go with a boy, see that she keeps with the right kind of a boy. Discourage her to any boy otherwise, or boy to a girl. If she’s going with an unbeliever, try to encourage her to go with a believer, and vice versa. Make your home nice. Make your home a place where your daughter or son will not be ashamed to bring their company before their father and mother, and into their house; and make home so happy that they’ll be pleased in their home to stay there.

"As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings : so the Lord alone did lead him . . . "
The prophet William Branham explained that this is the eagle age, where we fly above the cares of the world. The members of the Bride of Christ have a duty to train and develop our younger generation before they go to do battle for the Lord. Therefore, we will raise them in this spiritual nest, and if the Lord tarries they will guide the generations of the future.
