FAQ
What is Young Foundations (YF)?
Young Foundations is a ministry of Voice Of God Recordings, dedicated to encouraging young Christians in their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. As children and young adults face the many distractions and temptations in the world today, Young Foundations has been designed to provide them with the personal attention and direction they need to keep their focus on the basic values essential to the life of a young believer. Often this is done through youth camps or events, posting encouraging testimonies on our website from fellow young believers, and most importantly, by pointing the youth back to the Word of God.

Being signed up in YF doesn't mean you will automatically be sent material.

What is "The Foundation" tape and tape quiz, and how do I take part?
Our main focus in Young Foundations has always been to point the youth back to the Word. Since we first launched our website in 2007, we have posted new Message and Message quizzes on YF every month. Young people from all across the United States and world will listen to these messages as they become available, and then take the quizzes on the messages. It has proved to be the most popular part of YF over the years, and a great encouragement and blessing to both youth and parents.
Anyone is welcomed to join in and take the quizzes, however, only youth ages 2-28 can submit their quizzes for points. You can follow THIS LINK to find out about the current quiz study.
What are Rewards Points?
Just like a Sunday School teacher gives her students a prize for learning a Bible verse correctly, Young Foundations wants to reward the youth who are dedicated to this Message. We want to do everything we can to point you to the Message of the hour and get you to hear the Voice of God to this generation. Rewards Points are designed to do just that. When you log in to the YF website with your YF ID number, then listen to the tape and take the quiz, you will get "Rewards Points" added to your YF account. These points can later be used for rewards items.
These rewards are not designed to be the reason a young person hears the Word, but just a little reward for their dedication. It is just the icing on the cake, a little prize for something they were already doing. For others, it just might be that extra little push that many parents know their child needs.
Who is eligible for rewards points, and what are the rewards?
YF Rewards points are available to ALL youth signed up in YF, ages 2-28. Rewards items will vary depending on what country you are from, and will be announced once you become eligible. There are also other benefits of earning rewards points, such as early Still Waters camp registration and special YF gifts.
How do I earn more rewards points?
"The Foundation" tapes and quizzes are the primary way to gain YF points, but there are also other ways. Do you participate in our Missionary Passport Sponsorship program? That will earn you points. The Cub Corner Magazine "Tape Quiz" will also get you some points. Each current online tape quiz and Cub Corner magazine quiz is worth 10 points. All past online tape quizzes are now open to retake and worth 5 points. All Sponsorship Projects are worth 5 points.
I took a tape quiz but my points or score did not show up.
There are many factors that can cause your score or name not to show up on the website or your YF profile page. Please email us by following THIS LINK to our "Contact Us" page and let us know so that we can fix the problem. You will never be a bother to us, so please let us know anytime you have a question.
What is QUIET TIME?
Youth around the world are encouraged to spend Quiet Time with their Heavenly Father every day. Quiet Time is not something new to a Christian, they have always had Quiet Time.  This is a time set aside from all the distractions of the day-to-day life. If you have an hour to take out of your day and pray, read your Bible, or listen to the prophet, we are confident that you will grow closer to the Lord. Watch how it changes the course of your day. Your attitude, your spirit, your discernment, your actions, your thoughts, your decisions; the list goes on and on. If you only have 30 minutes, or 15, the Lord will take whatever you will give Him. This is Quiet Time!
What is Global QUIET TIME?
Brother Branham encouraged a prayer time for believers around the world, through a universal prayer offered to the Lord at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Brother Joseph also felt to encourage everyone to participate in "Quiet Time" around the world. So on Saturday, the 24th of September 2011, we began a Global Quiet Time for all believers who wished to take part. Every Saturday at 7 am (Jeffersonville time), believers spanning the entire globe find their special places to get quiet before God. We know it will make a difference in your life, as it certainly has ours and so many others. The testimonies we’ve received over the past three years have been astronomical. Quiet time IS changing lives.
What is Creations and how do I take part?
In Spring of 2013 we launched a new program within Young Foundations called “Creations.” Creations is a place where the YF youth can come to not only learn new trades or skills, but also be taught valuable life lessons from the Word of God. We offer such classes as sewing, woodshop, craft and home-ec for youth in Jeffersonville and abroad. Anyone is welcomed to attend Creations classes! Follow THIS LINK to view the Creations page on our website and find out more. You can view the current Creations calendar by following the link, as well as all past Creations classes. There is also a "Login" link to register for Creations classes, and a "Contact Us" page for those who need assistance with class registration.

I am a Sunday School teacher and would like some material for my class.
We do not offer any Sunday School curriculums, but we do have some helpful tools and supplies on our website. Many parents and Sunday school teachers around the country use the Cub Corner magazines to create lessons/activities for youth. Also, the Cub Corner Website has been a big resource for parents and Sunday School teachers. There are many Bible and Message trivia, puzzles, games and more that you can use as tools for teaching your children. We also have the Mother Opossum and Footsteps of the Prophet Brother Branham story books, the Brother Branham Stories collection, and children’s Bibles that are all available on our Products Page.
I have a testimony that I would like to share with YF.
We love to hear your testimonies and share them with others on our website. You can send any testimonies or event reports through our CONTACT US page. Please add a note if you DO NOT want your testimony posted on the internet.
I want to stay in touch with other Message youth around the world through chats or forums, how can I do this?
We don’t offer open chat sites or forums, because we’ve seen how these can often have a more negative than positive impact. We understand your desire to have fellowship with other young believers. It’s a daily struggle rubbing shoulders with the world, and it’s a definite encouragement to have fellow believers to draw strength from in our walks with the Lord. That is why we started Young Foundations, to encourage young believers in their walks with Christ. Often this is done through youth camps or events, posting encouraging testimonies on our website from fellow young believers like yourself, and most importantly, by pointing the youth back to the Word of God.
You can SIGN UP in YF to be added to our email list to be notified of YF events in your area. We post all Still Waters camp schedules on youngfoundations.org and stillwaterscamp.org as they become available. These have proven to be a great way to meet and stay in touch with other young believers, like you, from different parts of the world.
