FUSIONTogether We Are Stronger

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—A THREEFOLD CORD IS NOT QUICKLY BROKEN.”

Fusion Youth Ministry is the amalgumation of local youth ministries within our Northwest Section of the Samoan District Council of the Assemblies of God. Dispersed throughout Seattle and Tacoma, Washington, the vision of Fusion Youth Ministry is to strengthen and develop healthy relationships and healthy youth ministries within our section by partnering and networking with local leadership. We believe we can accomplish this by working together because TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER! 

Fusion is “the process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity” – Oxford Dictionary.

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” – Mark 3:25

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb

Strengthening and developing healthy relationships and healthy youth ministries within our section by partnering and networking with local leadership.

To provide a safe environment of fellowship and growth where we can connect with God, each other, and our communities.


  1. Model Team Leadership – Demonstrating team leadership by prompting, encouraging and challenging youth leaders to develop and excel in their strengths for the benefit of the team. We can do this by providing networking opportunities where youth leaders will be able to apply their strengths and expertise.
  2. Facilitate Networking – Provide networking opportunities urging youth leaders to share ministry resources, knowledge, and experiences for the productiveness and effectiveness of leadership and ministry.
  3. Encourage Student Development – Edifying, empowering, and equipping students with a passion for Jesus and His mission, godly character through faith and knowledge of the truth, and a deeper, meaningful relationship with God. We can do this through worship, preach, teaching, small groups, activities, leadership training, and ministry opportunities.
  4. Complement the Local Church – We encourage all youth ministries to complement and enhance their local church by supporting and promoting its unique purpose, core values, and vision.


  • Be Holy – Developing godly character through faith and knowledge of the truth which accords with godliness (1 Pet 1:13-16; Rom 12:1-2; Eph 1:4; 2 Tim 1:9).
  • Be One – Cultivating unity by recognizing that strength is in our diversity, valuing one another beyond our differences, and building each other up through the various gifts entrusted to each of us (Eph 4:1-13; Phil 2:1-4; John 17:20-23; 1 Cor 12:12-31; Psa 133:1). 
  •  Be Light – Fulfilling and embodying the great commission by demonstrating faith and knowledge of the truth through the proclamation of His word and the transformation of our lives (Matt 5:41-16; 28:18-21; 1 Pet 2:9; 1 John 1:5-7; John 8:12).
